Aardman History
Wallace & GromitThese films received a very good audience and led directly to offers to produce television commercials and later pop-promos, including the seminal video to Peter Gabriel’s ‘Sledgehammer’. Many awards were won by Aardman during this period for its commercials, especially for the series inspired by Nick Park’s ‘Creature Comforts’ for the Electricity Association.

Aardman Animations has received
six Oscar® nominations and have won three times (Creature Comforts, The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave) and is now recognised as the world’s leading model animation studio. It houses the talents of many young directors producing animated television series, short films and tv commercials.

The film is called Chicken Run and is co-directed by Nick Park and Peter Lord.
