“Pythagasaurus” by Peter Peake

While we await their CG Arthur Christmas and their clay-mated Pirates feature, Aardman tempts us with this superbly crafted short from director Peter Peake. Produced by Aardman’s commercials division during downtime between jobs; here’s sneak peek of the designs and a brief interview with Peake at 3D Artist Online.

    great! This is a very clever, funny, unique, and nicely executed Aardman short! Unlike this ugly and poorly directed Fly one:

  • Has Bill Bailey ever done something that isn’t brilliantly funny?

    The answer is no, no he hasn’t.

  • I absolutely love this short- I can’t fault it at all. So happy to see something new and visually different coming through. It’s always exciting to see some CG animation that thinks outside the box.

    That was totally worth it, if only for the, “No, I definitely think the walking is quicker.”
