Pirates Ahoy!

Ahoy me hearties!

For those Aardman and general stop motion artists out there, please check out these links to the Bristol Studio's new feature film, The Pirates! Band of Misfits.

First up, are a series of videos hosted by Sony. Amongst their content, I was mega fascinated by the mechanic hidden within the pirate captain's beard. Watching overlap can often be taken for granted. That is until the problem is highlighted and you see the mechanical solution. To watch, please click on the pic.

Meanwhile, over on Skywigly, the site hosts an interview with director Peter Lord. Enjoy!
