The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!  (Peter Lord, 2012).

The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists! (Peter Lord, 2012).

The Fantasy/Animation podcast takes listeners on a journey through the intersection between fantasy cinema and the medium of animation.

For episode 31, Chris and Alex are joined on their swashbuckling adventure by stop-motion animator Richard Haynes (Arts University Bournemouth) to discuss his work on Aardman Animations’ The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists! (Peter Lord, 2012), as well as a few other animated feature films and television series along the way. Topics include how The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists! differs from the traditional shape of Aardman’s exaggerated and lavish fantasy worlds; the production pipeline of stop-motion feature films; the Britishness of the clean and crisp homemade style of the Aardman studio; and the philosophies of performance with (and around) the ‘animated’ character of the camera.
