Wallace & Gromit - English filmmaker Nick Park, born 06/12/1959.
Nick Park started creating the first Wallace & Gromit film, A Grand Day Out, in 1982. In order to make it he wrote to the makers of plasticine and requested a ton of their product. The character idea for Wallace came from his old English teacher. Wallace wears the same clothes as Park's teacher and has a similar personality.
