Hello? Anyone there?

Intended as a direct update to A724169 (my first ever Edited Entry, by the way): the addition of the new film being the most important change, although I'll welcome any other additions you think I ought to put in.

smiley - ok

Due to the update you'll need to change the second paragraph, and second 'useless fact' to reflect the existence of the more recent Wererabbit film - cunningly described so as to not be too much of a spoiler smiley - applause

Excellent smiley - ok

The internet shorts are now on the Were-Rabbit DVD as well.

Mention of last year's fire perhaps?

The sentence with: ...and Chicken Run...first feature... is a run-on. It's too long and it's hard to understand. I don't know what your intention is here, so I don't have any suggestions for breaking it up into two sentences. The ...chase to track down....plus... sentence is also too long and hard to understand.

You use Philip and Phillip to name Quartermaine's dog. I don't know which is correct. Given the slightly loopy nature of Wallace and Gromit films they could both be correct. Just in case they aren't this needs to be fixed.

You have a sentence with the films having a certain frame rate, and then the film having a different one. This is a mystery to me. Which particular films were more or less image-dense? Is talking about the rate of frames on the internet shorts comparable, given the different method of image production?

I think I've improved those. I've jsut found out that the internet shorts were called 'Cracking Contraptions', so I've added that too.

As a little aside, in the days of analogue filming, TV was recorded and played back at 25fps and movies at 24fps. This actually meant that a film would last less time on TV than in the cinema.

Nowadays, it's all digital and this problem has been eradicated, but stop-motion guys can more or less choose their own frame-rate, of course. The TV films were shot at 24fps and Were-rabbit at 23.

Looking good. Your last sentence (ending Were Rabbit) needs a full stop.
