It’s update time again, and this time we have been allowed to take a sneak peak behind the scenes on production of “A Matter of Loaf and Death”.

Wonderful! Thank you! Coffee mug in the middle of the road in first pic... I wish I could have one on my street.

What sort of time frame are you looking at for completion of the new film?
around near maybe oct/november i think
Thought it was September
Thanks for the pics! I would have missed the windmill completely..
hey jills, where have you been? missed you being around!!! thanks for the pics katie theyre great
Up the top KATIE said get dective hats on and look for clues so we better start looking!
in the top pic, the roadway slopes upward then down again, as if there was a CANAL TUNNEL below (as in the pic of steering a boat with Piella on it heading towards a CANAL TUNNEL).
also, in the third pic, you can see a break between the two sets of houses. wide enough for a CANAL perhaps? also can see the gap in the second pic the guy is painting.
your right!, theres aardman's thing about "hard to do water" out of window then
hehe...i'm sure they'll find a creative way to film it so that you think it's a water scene!
The Water be CGI most probs, the Canal Boats with a rig atatched underneath them, a runner "track" on the floor and a upright rig attatched to the canal boat, so that they can be animated frame by frame by the rig being slid along,the floor track by moving the rig will move the canalboat along.
Squigly I think your right, also see in the 1st picture there is a peice of board going under the slope where the river would be!
no there isnt thats the other side of the canal you can see the wood base on the other side of the "canal gap" cause it lines up and goes straight and touches the house on the left.
WAHOO!!! Thank you Katie! This is going to be great!
wooohooooo....do i win a Fleeced game for that bit of detective work?
darn it! i guess not. grrrrr
drinking? hmm does look like one of those blue and white striped W&G mugs. but look at his right hand below...it's not holding the mug. looks more like the animator is giving a little sippy of something. a coffee break between shots, perhaps? hehe
sory i had to put dylan on the brigie
hehe...you're pretty handy with Paint aren't you! don't know if that sets guy would appreciate you snuffing him out like that! lol
is that dylan on that bridge? did not recognize him.
he is a bit small
cc, have you heard of a famous painter named Pablo Picasso? Some of your Paint drawings remind me of his work.
i've herd of him pity he neve pianted w&g
wouldn't that be funny if Picasso painted W&G. Come to think of it, wasn't there a Picasso-like painting hanging in Tottington hall?
yes there was i took some pics of it at the exhibition
You're great at the paint thing Cool Chris!
ooh, can you post the pic jordan? i was searching for it online after i posted the message to cc.
Thanks for posting the pic Harry. But I was thinking of the one that looks like a picasso painting - crooked eyes, kind of abstract. I think it was of Totty or a female relative of hers.
Oh, I just found it on pg 52 of The Art of Wallace & Gromit The Curse of the Were-Rabbit book. I thought that was one of the funnier pics hanging in tottington hall.
Heres another picture I took there, Totty's set was fab and there was hardely any filming in it, you can see by that aardman put the best work they can up to all there stuff! On my picture look at the detail on the flowers!
Harry did you post another pic or were you talking about the one that's three up?
that pic i think your looking for was in the other half of the set
Hi Harry. That is a funny pic too. Thanks for posting it! I haven't tried making any models, only because it would be so expensive to ship the materials to the US. If not for that, I think I would have a lot of fun with modelmaking. I like to create things. But right now I think I'll stick to drawing and painting.
You could be right Jordan. I also saw the pic I'm looking for on pg. 92. It's hanging to the left of the fire place in the Tottington Hall drawing room.
Love the pic Harry.
