On Set with Aardman: Making Early Man

An adventure one million years in the making…

Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, Aardman’s Early Man told the story of plucky caveman Dug who, along with his sidekick Hognob, unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game – football.

The exhibition, developed in partnership with Aardman, will showcase the incredible creative skills of the Bristol-based team who made the film: from drawings which create an imaginary world and extraordinarily crafted sets to tiny exquisite character models and the latest VR technology.
