Dave Riddett Visit

Today we were visited by Dave Riddett, a former student and now a member of the Aardman team. He talked to our students about Aardman and about his role in the production of animated films, TV programmes and advertisements.

Everyone was excited to see the models and to have detailed explanations of how things like Wallace and Gromit, Shaun the Sheep and the new film The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists! were made.

Dave showed a film made whilst he was a student at Robert Smyth in the early 1970s. It was both entertaining and at times very dangerous looking!
