First Brit CGI animation feature scores well

"Valiant", Britains's first homebrew CGI feature, opened over the Easter weekend in the UK. Ranked fifth overall, the film took £1.1 million at the box office. Based on a story by George Webster, "Valiant" was written by George Melrod and Jordan Katz and directed by Gary Chapman.

Valiant tells the story of a homing pigeon during World War II. Visit the Valiant site for the trailer and info. Read Shadows on the Wall for a review.

Hi m8,
Thanks for the tip off about Valiant - not sure how it will play in mainland Europe as it's extremely gung ho "who won the war" etc...

Did you spot my Ricky Gervais interview?

Nice blog BTW...
