Aardman: An Epic Journey: Taken One Frame at a Time (Hardback)

Pre-order. Despatched on publication 01/11/2018


Claymation experts Aardman are responsible for some of our most beloved animated characters like Wallace & Gromit, Morph and Shaun the Sheep.

The multiple Oscar winners have also brought out some of the biggest animation films in recent decades such as Chicken Run, Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists and Arthur Christmas. Coinciding with their new blockbuster EARLY MAN starring Eddie Redmayne.

But how did Peter Lord and David Sproxton grow the company from such humble beginnings to their world-class studio in Bristol? How did they develop their unique style of animating clay? How did they meet the brilliant Nick Park? And how on earth did they conquer Hollywood?

This is the intimate, revealing, fascinating and funny behind-the-scenes story of Aardman Animations, told in their own words by Peter Lord, David Sproxton, Nick Park and Richard Starzak.


TURNING POINTS: Key moments that changed the company's future forever e.g. Pitching Chicken Run to Steven Spielberg, the Sledgehammer video, going to speak at Nick's film school.

THE LOW POINTS: How Aardman was forced to pull production on a film called The Tortoise and The Hare which almost destroyed the company's reputation forever.

HILARIOUS descriptions of tough early days when there was no money at all. E.g. a year spent penniless in Malton eating nothing but lentils.

THRILLING MOMENTS: We get a rare glimpse into the heart of the Hollywood beast through the eyes of Nick Park as he bags his first Oscar.

STARS: What is it really like to work with Mel Gibson, Sir Ian McKellen or Hugh Jackman? And why did Julia Sawalha get stopped by Canadian customs?

GETTING FIRED... A devastating account of the cruel and ruthless world of Hollywood

INSIGHTS into how to run a multi-million pound business by two men who both freely admit they are not at all `business minded'.

CONTRIBUTIONS from from Eddie Redmayne, Timothy Spall, Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Grant, and foreword by Matt Groening.
