Behind the Scenes of Aardman's The Pirates!

The British stop-motion giants, Aardman, are hard at work on their next feature film, a stop-motion collaboration with Sony Pictures Animation, The Pirates. As such, the publicity train is well and truly rolling and the film's official Facebook page has unveiled some behind the scenes images, showing the animators and crew interacting with the little clay cast of characters.

The images can all be viewed here, and are a great look at the production process at Aardman. The images here in this post show the painstaking approach Aardman take on their stop-motion films, to achieve the best outcome.

From the trailers and these images, The Pirates is going to have some truly awe inspiring scenes and set pieces; truly ambitious for the challenging medium of stop-motion. But director, Peter Lord, (pictured top with The Pirate Captain) clearly has faith in the diligent and hardworking animators at Aardman.

The Pirates sails into UK cinemas on March 30.
