Zitat des Tages von Nick Park:
We can do things that we never could before. Stop-motion lets you build tiny little worlds, and computers make that world even more believable.
There is no worse situation to be in than Oscar night. Not knowing whether you've won is completely draining.
Americans like the British kind of quirkiness and the strange accent. They find it kind of cute or something, with a certain charm.
The nice thing about animation is that you can realise your inventions without understanding all the hard theory.
As I get on and films take four years to complete, I tend to have a hankering for very short projects so you can move on to the next idea. It's the ideas I'm interested in. What comes out of your head.
I'm always there at home thinking of Wallace and Gromit ideas.
We have to look forward and keep filming new films and not get stuck in the past.
Gromit was the name of a cat. When I started modeling the cat I just didn't feel it was quite right, so I made it into a dog because he could have a bigger nose and bigger, longer legs.
When we first sold the Wallace and Gromit shorts to America, people suggested we get rid of the strange British accents and put clear American voices on them, and we held out.
There is something about the Australian psyche that seems to like films that are slightly offbeat.
It's very hard to adapt something. You end up changing it too much to make a good movie out of it. I prefer to work with things that are custom made for my kind of animation.
Get out and make films. There are so many cameras now to suit any budget, so there are no excuses.
Wallace and Gromit's contraptions are created purely for gags, but we all have the urge to invent - especially children. If they're bored, kids will make something from cardboard boxes, yoghurt pots, tape and elastic bands. Often, those constructions are the best.
I always considered Ray Harryhausen's work so fine that it was way out of my league: in terms of realism and naturalism, in terms of animal movement.
