Aardman Animations and Dreamworks have ended their production deal early, after only completing three of five planned films, reports the BBC.

Both companies blamed a difference of focus for the end of their relationship, with Dreamworks wanting to concentrate on CG-based animated films and Aardman returning to its roots in claymation. However, the last two films co-created by the two companies -- Flushed Away and Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit -- have both reported losses.

Dreamworks intends to produce two CG-based animated films a year and has planned its roster until 2010, according to president Jeffrey Katzenberg.

Aardman is working on "an ambitious slate of feature film projects" according to founders Peter Lord and David Sproxton, which will be announced shortly. The company also has a version of its Creature Comforts TV show created for the US out this summer.
