Aardman Week Podcast: Featuring Nick Park, Peter Lord & David Sproxton

// Featured, Interviews


ep58tIn the latest episode of the Skwigly Animation Podcast we reminisce on the glorious body of work Bristol-based Aardman Animations have been responsible for over the past forty years, from their internationally-renowned Oscar winning films to their hidden gems. Amongst the studio’s output discussed are short films such as Early Bird (Dir. Peter Lord/David Sproxton) A Grand Day Out, Creature Comforts (Dir. Nick Park), War Story (Dir. Peter Lord), Next (Dir. Barry Purves), Ident (Dir. Richard Starzak), Not Without My Handbag (Dir. Boris Kossmehl), Stage Fright (Dir. Steve Box), Pythagasaurus (Dir. Peter Peake), Fly (Dir. Alan Short), Blind Date (Dir. Nigel Davies), Off Beat (Dir. Will Becher) and The Pearce Sisters (Dir. Luis Cook) as well as their feature film highlights (and not-so-lowlights), iconic advertising campaigns and enduring international legacy.

Returning to this episode are previous podcast guests and Aardman co-founders Peter Lord and David Sproxton, with Wallace & Gromit and Creature Comforts creator Nick Park making his first appearance!

Also discussed in this episode – the wonder of Lupus Films’ upcoming Raymond Briggs adaptation Ethel & Ernest, the blunder of Sausage Party , when studios fail miserably at attempting to imitate the Aardman style and the current strength of the UK animation industry.
