Aardman Gets Heroic! Superman, Batman and Catwoman In Claymation!

Aardman Gets Heroic! Superman, Batman and Catwoman In Claymation! | The Batman and Its Influence | 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.

Marisa Chiulli's curator insight, February 25, 2013 9:16 AM

Forget Steve Jobs. Bruce Wayne may have done more for mobile technologies than anyone in Silicon Valley.

 

“Batman may be fictional,” says software engineer Brian Spellman of Indiana-based IGTech, “but the character’s mobile tech savvy as expressed mostly through the Christopher Nolan trilogy may have inspired today’s mobile hardware and software designers more than we – or even they – realize.”

 

From the growing fusion of mobile tech with our automobiles, to the sleek black look of our touchscreen handheld devices, there is no shortage of hot mobile gadgets and developments in the market today that could have easily been found in the Batmobile a few years ago.

 

“If you look at the earlier Batman films, there were GPS references on mobile gadgets and in the fleet of Caped Crusader vehicles that were ahead of their time,” Spellman explains. “Hollywood has always influenced real life. This is no different.”
