The Wayback Machine: Bristol Trip

A little over a month ago, the Los Angeles crew flew to the U.K. for Aardman's 30th Anniversary Party. In between wowing the Brits with our karaoke skills, marvelling at the weakness of the dollar and figuring out how to get free drinks, we managed to tour the show's production facilities and take in the complete awesomeness of the animation process. Don't take our word for it, as these photos, we hear, are worth exponentially more.

Tired Americans

Off the red-eye, adjusting to an 8 hour time difference.

We're all moving there.


Model Making

Getting started with visual aids.


Coming together.


Different mouth shapes.


On standby, wrapped so they don't dry out.


Sets

Painting hydrangeas.


Finished New York set.


Party

In the U.K., "fancy dress" means costumes.


Really amazing, elaborate costumes


Debating and/or regretting the famous vodka luge


Be sure to stay tuned for more Aardman tour pictures from the Eyeballs and Fishlips crew in the future!

Vodka luge is... DANGEROUS.
