Wallace & Gromit from the drawing board ran from 24 May to 7 September 2014 at M Shed, on the 25th anniversary of their first ever film release.
Over 30,000 visitors immersed themselves in the story making process of Aardman’s award-winning Wallace & Gromit films in this cracking summer exhibition.
The exhibition had a home developed by Aardman, especially for M Shed. There was information about how the funny storylines are created, what inspires their Bristol based makers and how the much loved characters have developed over time.
On display were instantly recognisable film sets, Nick Park’s notebook, the actual ‘rocket’ from a Grand Day Out and a real Oscar®, as well as lots of objects and contraptions from the museums’ own collections.
Merlin Crossingham, Creative Director of Wallace & Gromit at Aardman Animations kindly wrote us a guest blog – have a read: Behind the scenes with Wallace & Gromit’s Creative Director.
