Quotes

[talking about Nick Park's choice of her to play Wendolene in 'A Matter of Loaf and Death']
Anne Reid: I said to Nick "Why did you choose me?" And he said "Well we saw you on television and we thought your voice sounded as if it came out of a puppet." I said "Oh really? I'd never thought of that!"

Brilliance about Brilliance
2 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is one the most fun documentaries one can ever see. Why? Because it's about the brilliant British studio, Ardman, home of Morph, Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the sheep. As I watched this and saw all the accolades that fellow animators lay upon the studio, who take years to complete their stop motion brilliance, one thought was what did Ray Harryhausen think of this? And another was, oh my goodness, I have to watch all my Wallace and Gromit's again as well as my Shaun the Sheeps! Ardman is to stop motion what Michelangelo is to art. They are the tops and this whirlwind documentary - which I wish could have been longer - is simply so engrossing, that one is sucked in and when it's over you go what? Where did the time go?
