Curate's Egg of Aardman - make sure you get the right one,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Aardman Classics [DVD] (DVD)
This is probably the 4th or 5th iteration of this DVD.
I bought the first two, but I think that's probably enough now...
The content is definitely varied, some absolute corkers in there "Next" being amongst the finest bits of animation ever made...
However, there are a good many experimental works, where the animators are clearly practicing their craft, and one can see a good deal of the development in techniques, skills, equipment, etc., and from that angle, it's a working textbook on 'how to have a go at stop frame...
From an enthusiastic viewer's perspective, it's a bit disappointing.
The quality certainly isn't worthy of DVD, and many of the works will be flipped past on the 2nd viewing.
Worth buying for some of the items, as you just can't get them anywhere else.
Message to the publishers: Please stop re-releasing the same DVD with one more little extra each time, it really dis-enfranchises your devoted audience.
(PS - anyone managed to get ALL the plays in the right order?)
