Bristol Exhibition of the Aardman developed characters is proving a popular choice with the public.
A day out of the offfice checking out the works of a splendid Bristol business Aardman.
For 25 years, Wallace and Gromit, have entertained us and now the notorious duo can be seen at the M Shed museum in Bristol. The exhibition includes film sets and the famous rocket as well as numerous contraptions from the amateur inventor, Wallace, offering an enjoyable experience for young and not so young.
Wallace and Gromit are the characters brought to life by the award winning Aardman Animations. Wallace is a lovable but slightly absent minded inventor, whose escapades plague his faithful dog companion Gromit, whose facial expressions say it all.
The duo’s popularity has reached a global audience with the animations having been translated into more than 20 different languages. Japan and Britain are the countries with the biggest following as well as Europe and the United States.
The characters have been featured in four critically acclaimed short films, several of which were nominated for (and winning) Academy Awards; and the full length film ‘The Curse of the Were-Rabbit’.
The exhibition itself includes unique material and exhibits, which show how the characters have developed over time, as well as how the storylines are created. For those who fancy trying their hand at creating their own story, the dining room provides the perfect setting to write and sketch your own creation.
For further amusement, you can search for various museum objects whilst marveling at the sight of a real Oscar.
The exhibition is at the M Shed in Bristol until 7th September 2014.
Understand: The exhibition is nothing to do with Minuteman Press and everything to do with the wonderful folk at Aardman who we thank for a cracking day out.
