  • Aardman feeling "Flushed Away" - USA Today 1/31/06

    Studio jiggles the clay format
    By Susan Wloszczyna, USA TODAY

    Fans of Aardman, home of Wallace and Gromit, might want to fortify themselves with a bit of cheese before swallowing this news.

    Digits are out. Digital is in.
    The very hands-on British animation studio behind such stop-motion films as 2000's Chicken Run and last year's The Curse of the Were-Rabbit is relying on computers to bring to life its fall comedy, Flushed Away.

    As sorry as I am to read this I can understand the decision. I really feel that most people can't appreciate or don't even care about the enormous amount of time and care it takes to produce stop motion animation.

    "Curse of the WereRabbit" was in production for 5 years and I believe it took 18 months to film.

      Although, what I've seen of this, it seems really good....

      I don't think it's a permanent decision. I'm sure they'll continue doing stop motion for years.

      This one possibly needed the CGI element for such a big picture, though...

      We'll see.
