Aardman Animations have released its new film 'Early Man'. The beginning of ideas and concepts started in 2011 but it wasn't until May 2017 that shooting the stopmotion feature began. Production of the animation involved 33 animators and 37 sets, however there were well over 140 staff needed to bring everything together.
The longest shot took 8 weeks to shoot but only lasts 40 seconds in the final film.
A group of us from the C&W studio are off to the cinema tonight to see it. We've yet to discover what happens in the story but at least we already know the stop-motion looks great.
