The closing credits were accompanied by the Aardman character Morph (an animated plasticine man) who turned a handle attached to a cotton reel, to wind on the "credits roll". See more »
This film is a celebration of Aardman, describing its humble origins and its breakthrough successes, with doting commentary from various people who have worked for or with the studio. It's a fun hour that'll go by in a flash for anyone who loves Aardman, but it doesn't go too deep into the film-making process-which could probably warrant its own entire documentary.
