Well done to Aardman for using animation to tackle such important issues. I've not seen the campaign yet. I'm sure it will work. I animated a film nearly twenty years ago, called the Magic Wheelchair, which tried to do the same thing, but had a script with no wit or imagination and certainly didn't use either the disability theme nor the animation with any creativity. A very clumsy film that probably helped no-one. Aardman's film sounds as if it will make a difficult subject acessible. well done. We need more producers using animation like this.

Ha, they are excellent. I've just watched them on

I must admit I was uneasy when I first heard them of them, assuming some company had ripped off Aardman, but seeing this came from Aardman they are excellent.

Hoorah that animation can try to make a difference rather than merely being animated wallpaper or acting as a creche.
