Chicken run by Nick Park( Visual )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 2,711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A coop full of tender chickens attempt to fly for freedom in the newest claymation creation from Nick Park and Peter Lord, whose U.K.-based Aardman Animations is known for its wildly popular Wallace & Gromit series. After several unsuccessful attempts to escape the chicken farm of vicious Mrs. Tweedy (voiced by Miranda Richardson), a snappy hen named Ginger (Julia Sawalha) thinks she finds the answer to her prayers in the form of a Yankee Doodle Dandy named Rocky (Mel Gibson), who can supposedly fly. But can the charming rooster save the hens from their imminent doom -- being diced for pot pies? Intelligent execution of a witty story makes this farmhouse allegory vastly entertaining, and it's enhanced all the more by a colorful cast of characters and clever references to films like The Great Escape. Simultaneously humorous and touching, Chicken Run's visual and technical magic is wholly cinematic in scope, a perfect example of the animation niche Aardman has carved for itself. Although not always the fun-filled children's romp you would expect -- several allusions to the tragedies of World War II are made -- Chicken Run still strikes home on many levels. And after only one viewing, you may think twice before eating another chicken pot pie

"Creating 3-D Animation, originally published in 1998, has become required reading for animation courses around the world. Now, this revised and expanded edition brings Aardman's ever-evolving technology and new achievements up to date for fans and students of this innovative animation studio." "Authors Peter Lord and Brian Sibley go behind the scenes in the making of the extraordinarily successful Chicken Run (1999), the studio's first feature-length film and the third highest-grossing English film ever released in the United States. Also explored here is the studio's increasing use of CGI, or computer generated imagery. This vastly important application of digital technology was only beginning to impinge on Aardman's work in 1998 - today it is all-pervasive." "With 32 new pages that offer expert advice by one of the world's leading animation studios, this fully illustrated history of Aardman and step-by-step guide to making your own animation film, is a must-have for all animators and animation junkies."--BOOK JACKET
