9 Aardman Animations The Creation of Wallace and Gromit Wallace and Gromit are the creations of Nick Park of Aardman. The original characters that Nick designed looked slightly different to the final characters. Wallace was much fatter, with a flat cap and moustache. Gromit was a larger dog with a voice. It was decided that Gromit could be just as expressive through his, eyes, ears and brow so his voice was taken away. Once the characters had been sketched Nick thought about the kind of adventure the duo could embark on. He decided that they should build a rocket to take them to the Moon because the pair believed the Moon is made of cheese. A script was written by Nick and his friend Steve Rushton and was part of Nick s project at film school. After film school Nick joined Aardman where he was able to finish his project. The Moon journey became a short film called A Grand Day Out. The rocket building sequence took about a year and a half to shoot while the entire film took between six and seven years to complete. A Grand Day Out was originally going to be even longer, with a scene where Wallace and Gromit find a fast-food restaurant on the Moon. While filming the scene where Gromit is welding the space rocket together the animators used a sparkler for the special effects. Unfortunately the sparkler caused the set to catch fire and melted Gromit s nose.
10 Aardman Animations Wallace and Gromit Adventures After filming A Grand Day Out the Aardman team began work on Wallace and Gromit s second adventure, The Wrong Trousers. Many of the ideas in the film came from Nick Park s sketchbook, for example, the train chase sequence. The original script for The Wrong Trousers was about pages long and had to be cut down to 40 pages. One of the scenes that was cut explained where the robotic trousers actually came from. The film was going to start with an astronaut walking on a different planet wearing the trousers. The astronaut was going to lose the trousers and watch them as they fell to the Earth. A Close Shave was Wallace and Gromit s next short film. Instead of another film about their inventions, the emphasis of A Close Shave was Wallace and Gromit s emotional relationship and how their relationship can be tested by new characters. The film involved a love story between Wallace and Wendolene, the owner of a wool shop. Wendolene became only the second speaking character in the Wallace and Gromit series of short films. As Wallace and Gromit were window cleaners in A Close Shave the prop and set designers had to overcome the difficulty of creating foam and water for washing windows. The foam was created using a mixture of white hair wax and small glass beads to represent the bubbles. After Aardman had finished A Close Shave, the characters Wallace and Gromit took a rest while the company filmed their first full-length feature film Chicken Run. This was a great box-office success and Aardman decided that it was time for Wallace and Gromit to hit the big screen. Production started on Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-rabbit.
