Aardman Animations

Redirected from Aardman Animation

Aardman Animations is a British stop motion animation studio founded by Peter Lord and David Sproxton in 1972. Nick Park joined Aardman in 1986, bringing his creations Wallace and Gromit with him.

Aardman's early work was in creating inserts for Vision On, a television series aimed at deaf children. Lord and Sproxton went on to create the character of Morph[?] for the children's art programme Take Hart[?], who went on to have a series of his own.

Aardman also made the video for Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer", in which Gabriel himself was used as a stop-motion model.

Three Aardman films, all directed by Nick Park, have won Oscars.
