In honor of the Oscar Nominee announcement this week, AWN is highlighting
three time Oscar winning director Nick Park, and Aardman Animations which
has amassed a series of nominations:
- CREATURE COMFORTS, AN AARDMAN COLLECTION:
From Aardman Animations, home of "Wallace & Gromit," comes an imaginative
array of characters in this amazing collection of clay animation shorts.
Clay animation animals comment on life at the zoological gardens in
"Creature Comforts," winner of the 1990 Oscar for Best Animated Short Film.
Then meet "Wat's Pig," the 1996 Oscar-nominated tale of two brothers - one
raised in royal splendor, the other with a kindly pig. Plus, in the darkly
hilarious, "Not Without My Handbag," a dear, deceased Auntie makes the
ultimate fashion statement when she won't stay in hell without the proper
handbag. Lastly, there's the Oscar-nominated, "Adam," a whimsical tale
about a little clay and a lot of imagination. $US 14.98. Available for sale
in US only.
