Nigel's Photo Gallery

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: Nigel gets to grips with a climbing wall

Nigel scales an all-green climbing wall as the camera rolls. Later, computers will remove the green background and replace it with footage of a garden wall. The finished sequence will see a miniature Nigel scaling great heights as he crosses a suburban garden. Although Micro Safari is mostly about wildlife, there is an element of physics in the show- because Nigel is shrunk, the laws of physics apply differently- gravity affects him a lot less for example, meaning he is able to perform climbing feats that would seem super-human at full size.
