Animated Adventures Exhibition in Leicester

Animated Adventures, featuring Aardman’s Wallace & Gromit, is now open at the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery in Leicester and runs until 12 October 2008.

Visitors will get a behind-the-scenes look at how animators including Aardman – the film makers behind Wallace and Gromit – create their characters and bring them to life.

They will also reveal the industry secrets behind CGI technology, stop-frame animation and set design. The exhibition will also include examples of Manga and fantasy animations, and will even give visitors the chance to try creating their own crazy animations.

The Animation Film Festival runs until September as part of the programme, and will include a range of workshops, talks, activities and screenings of animated films from across the world.
