This review is from: The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists: The Making of the Sony/Aardman Movie (DVD Tie in) (Hardcover)
I loved the film (despite the fact it isn't true to the original book)and was intrigued as to how they'd made it. I assumed that it was mainly done with cgi technology. But it isn't! Yes there is some but not as much as you may think. This book shows how everything was done, how many faces were made for each character, the intricate sets that were made and it shows the tiny detailing that you probably miss in the film but were put in any way. It's a brilliant detailed book that is in no way boring! It has interviews with the main characters in the film as well as the ones out of the limelight. It is full of facts and statistics (how many pirate captains were made? how many beards? How many cups of tea were drunk?....) as well as intriguing questions incase you missed something in the film. (did you see jane austen?, charles dickens or the elephant man? Was there a gold shaun the sheep or gromit in the Queens stash of gold in the tower?) I will have to watch the film again and see it from a new perspective!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey ho! Excellent!, 7 Oct 2012

This review is from: The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists: The Making of the Sony/Aardman Movie (DVD Tie in) (Hardcover)
It is a very nice story of hard work of plenty of people in stop motion animation. The story covers all types of work in this industry and has a huge amount of illustrations and photos on all stages of production. By the way, there is a list of artists on the last pages - check it carefully! May be you could find somebody of your neighbours there.
