In movie theatres at the end of the month is the film "The Pirates: Band Of Misfits" from the people who created "Wallace and Gromit." ABC7 asked director Peter Lord how they create their look.

The figures were at first clay in Lord's movies, now they are silicone. The figures move, talk, show expression in the time-consuming process of stop motion.

"The Pirates" is based on a book series and there may be a second film, but based on this one, it will take time.

"The Pirates: Band Of Misfits" is in theatres April 27.
