Anybody heard of or seen W&G? One of the few movies with plenty of (generally) clean humor for all ages. I say "generally" because it has a few sexual innuendos but is otherwise rated G. Razz
It's a "claymation" - a stop-motion movie using clay figures.

If anyone's interested, I'll give a synopsis.

It is indeed sad but not everything was destroyed. The original rocket Wallace and Gromit flew in, to the moon is still alive. It's not too much of a hinderance for future movies or productions though, as they rebuild everything for each production.

I think it's already out here in England but I'm not sure. I usually get dragged behind a friend if they've heard about a good film, but I'll make an effort to see this. The trailer, somewhere on the quicktime site, is choc-a-block full of funny scenes, so it won't be a flop.

also, i didnt think Wallace was dumb enough to mess with brain alteration technology.

but there were some encredable good points, the plane Dogfight was good, as was the bit where gromit was chasing the warerabbit in the car.

Only 1 question, if they make the movie through stop-animation with clay, how they do the drops that fall of things and splatter around, they hang in the air for the movie but in real life that's quite impossible. Just make them stand on something and then polish that away by PC or something?

They don't use clay, they use a very special custom made blend of plastiscine, but meh.

Anyway, the way you make things 'fly' in stop-motion animation is by using rigging, the rigging is cleverly placed so you don't see it due to the camera angle. However, there was some special effects used in this movie, like to make the bunnies rotate when flying around in that machine.
