five questions with
of Aardman studios
re the pirates movie
RussTov_FanSite: @PeteLordAardman If I send 5 questions for you to answer? Would that be OK?
PeteLordAardman: @RussTov_FanSite Go for it.
RussTov_FanSite: @PeteLordAardman 1) Is Russell Tovey coming back to do further voice work for the Albino Pirate's part...?
PeteLordAardman: @RussTov_FanSite Russell has triumphantly finished the Albino Pirate (for this movie). There may be a little ADR to do.
RussTov_FanSite: @PeteLordAardman 2) How long will it have taken to record the voice tracks by the time the movie has finished being dubbed etc?
PeteLordAardman: @RussTov_FanSite Well we've been recording on and off for 3 years now. But it's really spaced out. Russell's done 3 or 4 sessions.
RussTov_FanSite: @PeteLordAardman 3) My kids at school have enjoyed the 2 official promos but are there more to come before Pirates is released?
PeteLordAardman: @RussTov_FanSite Both the trailers so far Have been what they call teasers. There will be full trailers next year. And then TV trailers.
RussTov_FanSite: @PeteLordAardman 4) If this movie is successful, as I predict, are there plans to take on another book similar as a sequel?
PeteLordAardman: @RussTov_FanSite Happy to say we're working on a sequel idea already. Just so we're prepared!
RussTov_FanSite: @PeteLordAardman 5) Will Russ and cast be attending a major premiere when it's released, where might it be done? OZ will you be coming here?
PeteLordAardman: @RussTov_FanSite I'm sure there'll be a big London premiere (and Russell better be there!). I really hope to go to Oz because I love it.
RussTov_FanSite: @PeteLordAardman As promised my 5 questions are up. A major thank you & I have your ComicCon "big bag" pic ready for the blog lol

Mavro_Arni: @petelordaardman Thanks for answering Tom's questions. Very excited for your Pirates project. @RussTov_FanSite @russelltovey
Russell Tovey has finished early development work on a new thriller due for 2012 called "Clean Face" with director Gary Davy. Other cast members working on development are: Max Irons, Laura Haddock, Georgia King and Antonia Bernath. The movie will be in development for some time and is not yet available to the general public but I have posted a development copy here for Russell (who does have the password).
DR WHO CONVERSATION
9TH SEPTEMEBR 2011
HAVE YOU EVER TRIED TO WRITE TO A TWITTER IDENTITY WHO NEVER TALKED BACK THEN ONE DAY WHEN THEY DID TALK YOU WISHED FOR A BETTER OUTCOME…THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED WHEN I TRIED TO TALK TO BENJAMIN COOK FROM DR WHO.
Tom_In_Oz_: @benjamin_cook Ben, The newest eps of DW would be better if they got rid of Matt Smith I find him charmless.
Tom_In_Oz_: @benjamin_cook also plots are not family friendly anymore, so up themselves
benjamin_cook: @Tom_In_Oz_ Matt is awesome. But I find you charmless.
THIS IS WHERE I SHOULD HAVE STOPPED TRYING TO TALK TO MR COOK BUT SILLY ME I KEPT GOING THINKING HE MIGHT ACTUALLY ENGAGE IN DIALOGUE.
Tom_In_Oz_: @benjamin_cook look who is talking...the biggest non-entity on twitter x
benjamin_cook: @Tom_In_Oz_ ... says the man with 473 followers to the man with 7,057. But bless you for trying. Enjoy the rest of your day.
Tom_In_Oz_: @benjamin_cook It's past midnight here no day left to enjoy. And thanks for the engaging dialogue about the size of your penis JERK!
benjamin_cook: @Tom_In_Oz_ You're funny.
Tom_In_Oz_: @benjamin_cook I was trying to engage in serious debate. I am 53, I have seen WHO from the start and love it but it is in a black spot IMO
benjamin_cook: @Tom_In_Oz_ Dude. You're 53, yet tweet me playground insults ("thanks for the engaging dialogue about the size of your penis JERK!") Really?
Tom_In_Oz_: @benjamin_cook am vice principal am down with the kids - trying 2 say that original WHO was able 2 be enjoyed by old & young, now not so much
benjamin_cook: @Tom_In_Oz_ Vice principal? What would your students make of your name-calling ("the biggest non-entity on twitter") and insults ("JERK!")?
Tom_In_Oz_: @benjamin_cook it got your attention as I have tried to talk before and was ignored!
benjamin_cook: @Tom_In_Oz_ What would your students make of that tactic of getting, say, a teacher's attention?
Tom_In_Oz_: @benjamin_cook plots don't come with kids in mind & keep tracking back to previous eps with ref points that make it hard for younger kids
benjamin_cook: @Tom_In_Oz_ You answer/apology had better be good, or I'll be blocking you.
benjamin_cook: @Tom_In_Oz_ Kids LOVE that sort of stuff. Cf. the Harry Potter books. Dr Who's ratings show that just as many kids are watching as ever.
Tom_In_Oz_: @benjamin_cook Maybe in UK but here in Oz I teach in primary and only 7 kids out of 300 watch Dr Who at my school, can't explain why...
benjamin_cook: @Tom_In_Oz_ Still waiting for you to tell me what your students would make of insulting a teacher to get their attention.
Tom_In_Oz_: @benjamin_cook I know more grownups who watch it than kids. 1 of my staff has a niece called Kate Orman who wrote for WHO and doesn't watch
benjamin_cook: @Tom_In_Oz_ Or shall I just block you?
Tom_In_Oz_: @benjamin_cook Ben I am going to bed it's late. You deserved what I said and even more-so now with silly threats. If you block me. Your loss!
benjamin_cook: @Tom_In_Oz_ I deserved to be called a "jerk"? Consider yourself blocked. Ta-tah!
Tom_In_Oz_: @benjamin_cook I can still write to you x
benjamin_cook: @Tom_In_Oz_ Yes, but your tweets won't show up in my @-replies, so I'll never get them. Ha ha. Byeee! :) *blocks*
DEAR READER DON’T EVER TRY TO ENGAGE IN DEBATE WITH PEOPLE ON TWITTER.
WhoGuru: @Tom_In_Oz_ LOL Well to be fair you did lead off with a massive insult. Though he went completely out of line as well & pretended otherwise
WhoGuru: @Tom_In_Oz_ But seriously if you work with Who and can't take criticism he shouldn't be on Twitter for crying out loud! X
Tom_In_Oz_ : I just think his EGO is bigger than his penis!!! obv x
WhoGuru: @Tom_In_Oz_ think I'll have to toss up a blog entry about this. LOL The Doctor Debate, which I've been on the wrong side of more than once.
Tom_In_Oz_: @WhoGuru toss away blossom x or is that petal? x
MarkMMerrett: @Tom_In_Oz_ Lol, all that fuss over Dr Who, and why be so rude to you? Love Dr Who (when I can get to see it).
WhoGuru: @Tom_In_Oz_ lol I think either one works. hugs to you for not being afraid to knock a doc. XO I've been slapped for it a few times!
MarkMMerrett: @Tom_In_Oz_ Agree too about Matt, he's good but not for Dr Who, loved Tennant...
TMarkstahler: @Tom_In_Oz_ @wolfie_rankin WTF. He should ask himself if he can really afford to ignore constructive criticism from a fan of the series.
Tom_In_Oz_: @TMarkstahler @wolfie_rankin I am trying to ignore the little bloat fish but hey I tried many times to get an answer before. It's sad x
TMarkstahler: @Tom_In_Oz_ @wolfie_rankin I am sure his arrogance will be well received at the job centre. Ignore him he's not worth it :-)
