Slow-motion Claymation kit and Early Man Blu-ray #Giveaway #EarlyMan

Meet the team that rocked the Stone Age when Early Man arrived on Digital May 15 and on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital), DVD, and On Demand on May 22 from Lionsgate. From Aardman, the award-winning tribe that brought you Wallace & Gromit, Chicken Run, and Shaun the Sheep Movie, this prehistoric romp tells the epic story of Dug the caveman and his goofy friends who challenge invaders to a game of soccer in order to win back their home. Perfect for the young and young-at-heart alike, the cheerful tale told in charming, well-crafted claymation is Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and is full of “abundant delights” (Ella Taylor, NPR). Starring in the film are Oscar®-winner Eddie Redmayne (Best Actor, The Theory of Everything, 2014; Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Tom Hiddleston (Thor: Ragnarok, Kong: Skull Island), Maisie Williams (TV’s “Game of Thrones”), as well as Timothy Spall (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Harry Potter Franchise).

Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures roamed the Earth, Early Man tells the story of courageous caveman hero Dug (Eddie Redmayne) and his best friend, Hognob, as they unite their tribe against a mighty enemy — Lord Nooth (Tom Hiddleston) and his Bronze Age City — to save their home.



Learn how to make Hognob with the cast of Early Man! 


The kids and I attempted to make our own Hognob and stop action movie. It is truly amazing how many photos you have to take to just make a few second clip. I am totally in awe of these movies and the time and energy it takes to make them!
    


Check out our movie below!   Afterwards the kids also made a video of clay owls playing soccer.    We will be having hours of fun this summer making movies and perfecting our claymation skills!

This is such a cute movie, the kids loved the story line and the claymation is outstanding.  “Early Man” tells the story of a tribe of valley-dwellers of the late Stone Age defending their land from a tribe of invaders from the early Bronze Age.  The go about settling their differences in a game of soccer.
