Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

Friday May 27
Director: Nick Park, Steve Box
2005 / 85min / DCP

“Animation was my first love; I wanted to be an animator from when I was very young, and in college I was an intern at an animation studio. Wallace and Gromit was one of my earliest introductions to stop-motion animation, after Frosty the Snowman and stuff like that, it was a big inspiration for me in college. You think about how labor intensive the work is, all towards this amazing, quirky storyline. And the characters are a lot of fun, too. I love the idea of a human protagonist and their animal counterpart; it’s a great combination, and Wallace and Gromit and claymation definitely inspire figures in my work. I like my work to have this sort of roundness, and quirkiness, and subversive humor… but also foreboding energy. The Curse of the Were-Rabbit has all those qualities.”—Alexandria Smith
