A nice but out of date and incomplete behind the scenes look at Nick Park and Aardman
Being a big fan of Wallace & Gromit, it's not surprising that I'd watch
this short film about the series. It's a nice behind the scenes look at
the evolution of the films as well as a chance to see Nick Park--who
sounds an awful lot like Wallace, if you ask me.
There are two problems, however, with the film. First, soon after the
short was made, it was already out of date. By the time I'd seen it,
CHICKEN RUN, WALLACE & GROMIT AND THE CURSE OF THE WERE-RABBIT and the
"Shaun the Sheep" series had all come and gone. These are huge projects
and greatly expanded the reputation and skills of the folks at Aardman.
And, talking about Wallace & Gromit without the newer projects is like
ending Cinderella when she goes to the ball--there is just so much more
to the story that you want to see and learn more of but unfortunately
it isn't there! Second, at only 15 minutes in length, this still is way
too short a time length to discuss such wonderful characters and their
creation. Seeing the voice actors, showing the sets and getting more
interesting background information really would have been appreciated
and was sorely lacking.
