Great article!
I always liked that "Deadline" animation.

Amazing talent at Aardman. I really think they are in the position to become the next big player in the CG animated feature film arena. Their level of originality and style is right up there with Pixar's.

I would have to think that a CG animated feature would be on the horizon for Aardman and I think they could pull it off with great success. As a studio, they already understand the logistics of a feature as they've already pulled off Chicken Run under Nick Park's direction.

Let's cross are fingers.

This article is a little short, and doesn't says much about how they do their shorts, your previous articles are much better.that is my opinion.

Hey Visualboo -- you're right, The Deadline is a year old. But the article covers the five new shorts that were produced for Nickelodeon to air in October.

Looks good
They rule at Aardman
I love the facial morph targets they show there. They're really nicely modeled, only it hurts me to see the Nickelodean logo..

I love Aardman since the 1st W&G film I saw...
Nice article, funny to see they use the same technique for their lip-synchrone (spelling?) in 3D as in clay animation.

Just goes to show that artistic talent supercedes computer-literacy.

Wish they'd make a CG wallace and gromit though.

You can have your characters photoreal, fast or cheap. Pick two.

Thumbs down

Awesome work. Good to see 3D Festival coming out with high quality content. I thought the article was just right in legth, I wouldn't have read much more anyway -- and some of you didn't read the article judging from the posts here.

I'm glad you liked the article - I thought Leonard did a very good job. I'm even more glad that you liked the film - thanks.

Maybe one day I'll get a chance to go into more detail as to how we did it (you can probably guess though - it's not very impressive technically). If you can make it - I'll cover it in a little more detail in my talk at LEAF/3DF.

Cheers - Stefan
