Aardman Gets Heroic! Superman, Batman and Catwoman In Claymation! | Animation News | Scoop.it
As part of their upcoming DC Nation, The Cartoon Network has enlisted the help of the UK's Aardman Animation - the creators of Wallace And Gromit and Chicken Run - to create a series of claymation shorts based on DC Comics heroes. The idea is cribbed straight from Aardman's Oscar winning short Creature Comforts - in which interviews with random people at a zoo were used as dialogue tracks for conversations with clay zoo animals - but seeing this done in a superhero context is just brilliant. The character designs are pretty great as well.
