Home Town Teams
For several years, the UK-based Aardman Animation has had a partnership with the LA-based Dreamworks, which has resulted in Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit, among other classic films. This week, the partnership ended.
The LA Times opened their article on the news with, "Battered by the box-office failure of 'Flushed Away,"'DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. said Tuesday that it had formally severed ties with the movie's British maker, Aardman Animations."
The BBC reported the news with the headline, "Animators Aardman end movie deal."
(Personally, I'll watch anything Aardman does; I'm just amused by the different spins.)
