From Aardman and DreamWorks, the makers of Chicken Run,
comes The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, featuring that
loveable duo Wallace and Gromit in their first full length
feature film. The Art of Wallace & Gromit: The Curse
of the Were-Rabbit is the ultimate celebration of this
instant classic. Take a vivid behind-the-scenes tour, as we
follow the creative process from initial concept sketches
to finished movie...
Art of Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
one hell of an impressive accompaniment to the first feature
length Wallace & Gromit movie. With over 160 pages
of high quality glossy pages, this has to be the ideal present
for any serious Wallace & Gromit fan.
collection covers everything you ever wanted to know about
The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. My favourite section
details the lavish sets built for the movie. There are some
incredible photographs, especially of 'The
Woods' set. In fact that's one of the noteworthy things about
this book: every photograph is amazing. There are no slightly
out of focus behind the scenes shots (mainly because there
is no physical action to capture - as everything is animated
one frame at a time).
Lane and Paul Simpson do a fantastic job of making you feel
like you've been behind the scenes on the movie. And along
with all the production designs, and set shots, there
are also numerous "Did You See?" panels that point
out information that the casual viewer will probably be blissfully
unaware of while watching the movie.
though this book rather stupidly reprints a collection of
storyboard illustrations and one rather large picture that
ruin the movie's surprise ending. Whoever signed off that
inclusion should be severely reprimanded. While you could
argue that very few people will buy this book without having
already seen the movie, the fact that this book was available
for almost two weeks before the film was released in the UK
means that some people will have had the ending spoiled for
them. It's not as though this is even worthy of inclusion
- fine if it had been a particularly impressive special effect,
or impressive set design... but no, it's just an unexpected
than that rather big gaff, this is one of the most lavish
and beautifully put together books on the market.
