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.

UFO – Simon’s Cat | SKETCHES

Simon’s Cat has a close encounter with a UFO (Unidentified Fluttering Object), in our brand new series called ‘Simon’s Cat – Sketches’.

With a more ‘sketchy’ feel – ‘Simon’s Cat – Sketches’ are faster to make which means we can bring you more laughs more regularly! The upcoming episodes will feature fresh gags, adventurous characters and new locations.

FAQs:

Q. What software do you use?
A. This film is made in TvPaint 11.

Q. Why do “Sketches’ series look different?
A. Animation is a slow process and Simon’s Cat films pay particular attention to observed, real life cat behaviour. In order to speed up the production and bring you more content we have developed this new strand, which has a looser look and feel, without loosing any of the humour and relatable comedy.
