FAQs:

Q. What software do you use?
A. Simon’s Cat has been made using a variety of animation software over the years. Originally in Adobe Flash. Then TV Paint (and still on occasions) and most recently using CelAction.

Q. Why does it take so long to make each Simon’s Cat film?
A. Animation is a slow process and Simon’s Cat films pay particular attention to observed, real life cat behaviour. Historically the films were traditionally animated frame by frame. More recently we use Celaction which has sped up the process but still requires a lot of care and attention. Each film takes approximately 6-9 weeks to make, depending on complexity, number of characters and special effects.

SYNOPSIS
After an unfortunate encounter in the garden, Simon’s Cat goes to great lengths to avoid an imminent visit to the vet. As always, the question remains – will his long-suffering owner Simon step up to the challenge?

HISTORY
After a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2014 to make a longer film, ‘Simon’s Cat: Off to the Vet’ became the first 12 minute Simon’s Cat film to be produced in full colour. A HUGE thank you to all our Indiegogo Supporters. This film would not have been possible without you!

‘Simon’s Cat: Off to the Vet’ (in colour) has screened at multiple film festivals around the world and was awarded The McLaren Award for Best British Animation at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2016.
