Aardman - From the ground up.

A while ago now I was Fortunate to work with David Sproxton and Peter Lord on this 30 minute long documentary on the prestigious new Aardman building here in Bristol.

The documentary takes an in-depth look at planning and designing the building through to construction and moving in.

Featuring contributions from Architects, contractors, Site planners and Aardman staff including David Sproxton and Peter Lord.

My roles on this project were Cam op, interviewer and editor.

Here's a trailer for the piece to give a taste:

Your World of invention

If you've had a look at this blog before you will have seen a few pieces on the "secret project" that I've been working on....
Well, I can now proudly reveal that it is the entire DVD extras for Wallace & Gromit's world of invention released earlier in December.

The 6 pieces, running at around 7 mins each have been written, developed, filmed, directed & edited by myself and partner in crime Ricky Martin for the BBC and Aardman animations under the project title "Your world of invention".

The pieces are a fun look at taking ideas from the show and making them at home in an applicable way. Presented by Ricky the pieces are a fun way of getting the family involved in a good old build!

Films in the DVD extras are:

Upside-down-o-scope, Wind-Powered sprinkler, Atmospheric railway, Fin Ray Grabber, Spy camera & Air Rocket.

Here's a montage I put together of some screen shots and some behind the scenes, click the image to see it bigger:
