Nick Park Has Plans For 3D Plasticine
“When I first saw 3D coming in I had quite an appetite to do a 3D film. We were even planning to do an IMAX Wallace and Gromit at one point in 3D but for some reason financially that got shelved.”
After all the Avatar CGI action we got at the IMAX, we’d be pleased as punch to see a bit of homegrown stop-motion get the 3D treatment.
Park lost out at the Oscars last night but having already won one of the golden gongs, we don’t imagine he cried a river over it. He was nominated for A Matter Of Loaf and Death which he produced under the Aardman Animation banner.
“I’d like to see a 3D Plasticine animation – I think it would really suit it. In a way I’ve been a bit sceptical, but I have a feature idea up my sleeve which I’m thinking might be 3D.”
Speaking before the ceremony, Park admitted that being nominated was daunting. “Coming from the UK, a Preston boy, taking up a hobby that became a career, playing with Plasticine, it still feels a long way from Hollywood. Each film takes weeks, months, years working in the dark – and then you find yourself in the bright lights.”
