Pic Pic Andre Panic in the UK

Not To Scale directors Pic Pic Andre get a UK cinema release for their debut feature.

Pic Pic (Stephane Aubier and Vincent Patar), best known for their Cravendale milk commercials, have bagged a UK cinema release for their 80-minute movie, A Town Called Panic.

The movie sprang from the five-minute TV episodes of the same name, that were produced through Aardman, and features the same cast as the series with Cowboy, Janine and Steven again taking starring roles.

  
"One of the biggest challenges was to write a story that would hold the audience's attention for 80 long minutes as opposed to the five minute TV episodes we were used to,” comments Pic Pic. “This meant adapting and adjusting not only our storytelling methods but also our way of working and animating.  We realised that if the film was to be shown on the big screen, we had to pay much more attention to the details and depth of the art direction so as to create a richer visual experience and a great deal of effort was therefore put into the design and construction of the sets.  That said, we wanted to stay as true as possible to the initial spirit of Panic, namely its spontaneous simplicity, its homemade feel and its childlike absurdity."
  
Panic will be on the streets of London and all around the UK from October 8th.
