'Wallace and Gromit' creator goes prehistoric with 'Early Man'Long before he created Wallace and Gromit, Nick Park was taken with Ray Harryhousen's animated dinosaurs in the 1966 Raquel Welch movie "One Million Years B.C". "I just couldn't believe real dinosaurs moving around with people," Park said, recalled of the film he saw as an 11-year-old that inspired his love of animation.Using stop-motion animation techniques essentially unchanged since Harryhousen's day, U.K.-based Aardman Studios tapped its largest production team yet – with nearly 40 animators and sets working at once – to make "Early Man".Animators pose the puppets for each frame – every movement and gesture – with 24 frames per second.Park confessed that sometimes he can see reflections of himself in the characters' movements.Park also worked with the voice actors, something he wasn't always comfortable doing.
