Busy times at Aardman

For those who don't know (ie my non facebook buddies) I've been at Aardman Animation now for over 4 months working on their next stop motion picture, so sorry for the delay (and thanks to old Uni mates for kicking my ass into saying what I've been up to in the last year or so) in updating, but I've been pretty busy working.

All I can say is it's been awesome so far, working with some seriously cool people who really know what they're doing in the film making process, enough so that Matt Groening and Miyazaki send there own personal drawings to them to say how much they love their films too! And I get to hang out with Wallace and Gromit in the flesh / plasticine sometimes.

Since then the two BBC series I worked on at Prime Focus "How Earth Made Us" and "Wonders of the Solar System" have both been aired, and gained record viewing figures. Here's the trailer for Brian Cox's "Wonders of the Solar System"(he's a bit of a secret hero of mine, watch the extras on "Sunshine" - he gives a great commentary on how he worked with Danny Boyle on making a fictional film as real as possible):-
