An exciting selection of images personally selected by Nigel, including exclusive shots available nowhere else in the world.

Micro Safari

Aardman Studios, Bristol, April 2006: filming with a giant green branch

Here a gigantic green branch has been built to precisely match an identical branch that has already been filmed in close-up. The script called for Nigel to interact with the twig, running across it and hanging from it- he can do all this on the green model, which will later be removed by special effects and replaced with images of the real branch. Itís all cunning stuff.
