In An Adventure With Scientists! Dedicated young fans of the legendary animators battled through the rain with their parents and were rewarded with an amazing workshop where they could; make and design their very own pirate hats, plus find contenders for the best pirate drawing prize and even make their own Polly. Plus, along the way they were helped by animators and designers from Aardman. At this wonderful showcase, future animators and designers were even given a chance to create a storyboard for their own pirate adventure, under the expert eye of storyboard artist Jay Clarke, who showed us how to story-board and how our favorite characters, including Shaun the Sheep and Wallace and Gromit, are brought to life on the screen. »

16 November 2012 4:00 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Amazon has released their early Black Friday Deals Week schedule beginning Monday, November 19 and running through Monday, November 26 and I have added the entire list in its state below and will be updating as more and more titles are added it to it and considering the limited number of Blu-ray titles included I have to assume this thing is going to get beefed up.

It was filmed at fourteen locations across Yorkshire including Spofforth Castle, Harewood House, Plumpton Rocks, Temple Newsam House, Armley Mills and Devonshire Hall in Leeds.

Series Creator Alison Hume, who lives in York, says; "The new adventures of the Sparticles tribe will keep our audience on the edge of their seats and their imaginations fizzing as well as delivering lots of humour, wit and laugh-out-loud moments."

Wallace and Gromit creator Aardman enjoys profit surge

8 October 2012 4:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Aardman says its pre-school programmes Timmy Time and World of Invention continue to 'recoup quicker than expected'

The creator of Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep has more than doubled its turnover in the UK, thanks to the success of two Hollywood blockbusters.

Profits from Arthur Christmas and Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists were not included in the results for Aardman Holdings, although the jump in revenues – from £53.5m in 2010 to £66.8m in 2011 – does include upfront fees from Sony Pictures, the company's Hollywood producer.

Aardman, which has published its annual accounts, said a new series of its pre-school programmes Timmy Time and Wallace and Gromit's World of Invention, both shown on the BBC, had been well-received and "continued to recoup quicker than expected".

However, fewer episodes of Timmy Time had been sold to other European countries, resulting in revenues from the EU falling from £4m to £1.8m. UK revenues, »

Take five: box sets for primary school-age kids

28 August 2012 5:03 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From Danger Mouse to Horrible Histories, we offer a few suggestions to keep the little rotters entertained

Remember when you were a kid and school summer holidays seemed to go on forever? Well, if you're a parent, they still do – but not in a good way. Keeping the little rotters entertained can be teeth-gnashingly tricky – especially when it's raining outside and you ran out of ideas sometime in late July. So arm yourself with these DVD box sets, both old and new. They'll give you a chance for a sit down – and some might transport you back to your own childhood too…

Danger Mouse

The greatest secret agent in the world! The one-eyed white wonder! Speaks 34 languages and lives in a postbox! Practitioner of the ancient martial art of Kung Moggy! Cosgrove Hall's animated 80s spy parody is still a delight, as the rodent and his bumbling sidekick Penfold battle »

Wallace: 'I have a feeling Gromit has a hankering to be a composer himself'

26 July 2012 4:06 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The cheese-loving inventor has written a concerto for the Proms – without any help from his dog

Without being rude... your creations have a reputation for not always working as planned (1). How can you be sure your Concerto (2) will not end in tears?

Don't worry – me and Gromit will be backstage to keep an eye on things in person. What could possibly go wrong?

A concerto normally specifies which instrument(s) it has been written for. My Concerto in Ee, Lad does not do that. Is this a deliberate attempt to redefine musical form?

I just couldn't decide what to write it for – spoons, paper and comb, kazoo … So in the end I thought I'd just write it for all of them. With the odd cow bell thrown in for good measure.

Is Gromit pissed off you didn't ask him to collaborate with you?

I suspect an element of professional jealousy »

'Pirates! Band of Misfits' Director Peter Lord, On Defending Darwin and Wallace & Gromit's Unseen Adventure

27 April 2012 9:41 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Aardman Animations has entertained audiences for years with visually dazzling stop-motion cartoons like "Chicken Run," "Shaun the Sheep" and, most famously, "Wallace and Gromit." This weekend, they return to theaters with "The Pirates! Band of Misfits," a comical story about a helpless ship of plunderers, featuring the voice talents of Hugh Grant, Martin Freeman (a.k.a. Bilbo Baggins from "The Hobbit") and David Tennant ("Dr. Who"). Grant voices the bumbling Pirate Captain, a not-so-respected leader who's trying to finally win the coveted "Pirate of the Year" award. During his award season campaign, he gets roped in with a young Charles Darwin, and the pirates and scientist end up in a madcap swashbuckling tale involving a parrot that may or may not be a parrot, a super-smart chimp, sword fights, food fights, the plague and the most insane depiction of Queen Victoria ever. The movie -- like all classic Aardman »

'Pirates! Band of Misfits' Director Peter Lord Talks DreamWorks Animation, Batman & The Allure Of Pirates

25 April 2012 2:01 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This Friday, "Pirates! Band of Misfits" opens, the latest whirligig stop motion contraption by the cracked geniuses at Aardman Animation, the studio that, over the years, has brought us such astounding wonders as "Wallace and Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit," "Chicken Run," "Arthur Christmas," and the underrated "Flushed Away." 'Pirates' is their second film in conjunction with Sony Pictures Animation, their new home after leaving a partnership with DreamWorks Animation ("The Croods," Chris Sanders' next movie for DreamWorks, was an idea originally developed by Aardman but retained by DreamWorks Animation after the split). We got a chance to talk with Peter Lord, director of "Pirates! Band of Misfits" and the co-founder of the studio (he's a kind of cuddly British John Lasseter proxy), about what drew him to this pirate world, what's next for stop motion animation, the split from DreamWorks, and his new Batman short films. »

Editor’S Pick: Read Our Exclusive Interview with the Producers of Green Lantern: The Animated Series

There are so many different animation styles, which is cool. What was the thought behind a different style for each short?

Bj: The way Sam Register (along with Peter Girardi who had the idea for the Block) described it was for it to be a mini-film festival of styles. The goal from »

Wallis and Gromit fan Prince Charles

Britain's Prince Charles' 'favourite people' are Wallis and Gromit. The prince and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, are big fans of Aardman Animations' Plasticine creations, with the duchess preferring Shaun the Sheep. Speaking at a reception at Clarence House - where she was unveiled as patron of the Big Jubilee Lunch - Camilla told children: 'I love Shaun the Sheep. He's really funny. My husband Prince Charles - Wallace and Gromit are his favourite people in the world. We always sit and watch them - it's one of his favourite films.' At the reception, Camilla enjoyed a blue cupcake topped with a Union Jack and hailed the culinary creation - which had been baked by nine-year-old twins Amie and »

Mr Tumble: 'Why be on kids' TV? I just love it!'

2 March 2012 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Justin Fletcher is already the clown prince of British children's television. Now, writes Nick McGrath, he wants to conquer the world with a big-screen debut

'You can't fool children," says the nation's favourite kids' entertainer and its finest exponent of the three Cs of children's broadcasting: "My very first commissioning editor at the BBC, Ian Lockland, taught me that it's all about clarity, contact and commitment. It's not always easy for a single person to look through a lens in a studio and engage with a child at home but I just really enjoy what I do and I hope that comes across in my performance. I genuinely love it."

In the space of an hour, Justin Fletcher, 41, whose colourful roll call of characters includes Anna Conda, Arthur Sleep, Gail Force and, of course, the inimitable Mr Tumble, uses the phrase, "I love it," more than the average four-year-old whines, »

Is pre-school TV having a golden moment?

14 February 2012 5:41 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Ex-Doctor Who boss Russell T Davies says kids' TV is in decline – but just look at Abney and Teal, Peppa Pig or Charlie and Lola

No less an authority than former "Whopremo" Russell T Davies – who cut his TV teeth on Children's Ward and whose latest project is Cbbc action romp Aliens Vs Wizards – recently lamented the decline of kids' TV. "I'm amazed people don't recognise the genius of children's writers," he said. "For example, Andrew Davenport, the creator behind Teletubbies and In The Night Garden, is up there, in my opinion, with Tom Stoppard and Samuel Beckett."

Putting aside the curious choice of comparison, his comments were fired by anger at ITV for ending production of children's shows. But judging by the TV I watch over my toddler's shoulder – Ok, sometimes he watches over my shoulder – Davies need not worry. There's enough excellent stuff on the BBC, Five's Milkshake, »
