群雄逐鹿动画世界

来源: 时间:2008-03-10 17:34:57
  
  Aardman's early work was in creating inserts for Vision On, a television series aimed at deaf children. Lord and Sproxton went on to create the character of Morph for the children's art programme Take Hart, who went on to have a series of his own.
  
  In 1983, Aardman produced a series of short films for Channel 4 that featured audio recordings from real world situations such as a local radio DJ that were then matched to an absurd animated scenario. This same technique was the basis for Creature Comforts.
  
  Aardman also made the video for Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer", in which Gabriel himself was used as a stop-motion model (a process called pixilation, which was also used in the Aardman series Angry Kid, featuring an actor wearing a mask).
  
  Three Aardman films, all directed by Nick Park, have won Oscars.
  
  Aardman produced their first feature-length film, Chicken Run, directed by Park and Lord, in 2000. This was followed by Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, a feature film about Aardman's most famous creations.
  
  Most or all of the props and scenery used in Aardman productions since 1972 were destroyed in a warehouse fire on 10 October 2005. The models and sets used for Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit were undamaged, as they were on display at a different location. The same case applies to the master copies of finished prints of the company's work. The original models of Wallace and Gromit were spared however, as they were with Nick Park on his publicity tour at the time. The rocket from a Grand Day Out was also spared as it was on display at the company's studio at the time.
  
  Their next feature film will be Flushed Away starring the voices of Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Bill Nighy, Andy Serkis and Jean Reno. This will be followed by Tortoise Vs. Hare, an update of Aesop's fable, and Crood Awakening, a pre-historic comedy scripted by John Cleese.
