— Nick Park’s first ever film

Here’s a lovely little treat. It’s the first ever animation by Nick Park, the mastermind behind the likes of Wallace & Gromit. Using a Bell & Howell 8mm movie camera, Nick made the animation in 1971 aged just thirteen, using his mothers sewing kit to create the set and characters.

You can see the beginnings of Nick’s trademark style in the animation. You can view it here.
