Wallace emerges from 40lb block of cheese in amazing animation

This amazing animated clip shows a man appear to effortlessly carve a huge block of cheese with his bare hands into a bust of Wallace from Wallace and Gromit.

The clip is the work of Lawrence Becker from the Animator's Studio in Portland, Oregon in the USA and uses stop animation as a nod to the technique of the much-loved films by Ardman Animations.

Although Wallace and Gromit's favourite cheese was Wensleydale, the maker of this video used a 40lb block of cheddar to create the unusual clip.
