Peter Lord

Co-Owner and Creative Director

PETER LORD is Creative Director of Aardman Animations, which he co-founded with his long-time collaborator David Sproxton in 1972.

Their breakthrough success was with the clay character Morph, who later starred in his own series The Amazing Adventures of Morph.

They developed the technique of stop motion animation, usually with clay puppets, which became the company’s hallmark.

As a director, Peter has been honoured with three Academy Award® nominations for Adam in 1992, for Wat’s Pig in 1996 and for his first solo feature The Pirates! Band of Misfits.

In November 2018, Aardman became an Employee Owned organisation, ensuring that the studio remains independent and securing the creative legacy and culture of the company for the future. A much-anticipated Chicken Run sequel is currently in pre-production.
