Wallace and Gromit creator Nick Park talks to the Guardian about his career.

Park says it is unlikely there will ever be another Wallace and Gromit movie, but more television specials remain a possibility. He adds he also has an idea for another feature but is concentrating on A Matter of Loaf and Death for the time being. "All of our stuff has taken time to grow on people. It started small and had this long, slow, organic growth. You can't knock stuff out quick if it's going to be good."

"I won't pay to see a show that doesn't have a groove to it, so why would I put one out there?" he asked as he nursed a Guinness. "For a long time, when I was touring solo, I got put in that box, that solo-folk-singer-songwriter box. And when you get put in that box, it's hard to get out, even when you form a band. But I needed to get out -- not just to reach a wider audience but also because it's just more fun playing with a band."
