'Sixty seconds to blast-off...' - from 'A Grand Day Out'
Thanks to a private swap with Claire i FINALLY got my very 1st Wallace&Gromit card! I am a huge fan of this duo, esp Gromit as he is just sooooooo cute..! <3
The series contains four animated short films and a feature-length film. I have seen the first three shorties and can highly recommend them (esp if you are into quirky british humour): A Grand Day Out ('89), The Wrong Trousers ('93) & A Close Shave ('95). And of course the movie: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit ('05).
These fellas are made from moulded plasticine modelling clay on metal armatures, and filmed with stop motion clay animation. Their brilliant creator is Nick park of Aardman Animations - a studio based in Bristol (UK) and also responsible for the movies Chicken Run ('00) & Flushed Away ('06).
Recently i've also watched Morph, which appears to be the first clay character this studio created, back in 1977! we are the same age :)))
