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.

Time-lapse: Preparing Sentinel-3B for liftoff

See in this time-lapse how the Sentinel-3B satellite was prepared for its liftoff on 25 April 2018 from Plesetsk in Russia.

Sentinel-3B joined its twin, Sentinel-3A, in orbit. The pairing of identical satellites provides the best coverage and data delivery for Europe’s Copernicus programme – the largest environmental monitoring programme in the world. The satellites carry the same suite of cutting-edge instruments to measure oceans, land, ice and atmosphere.

Julia Samoylova – I Won’t Break (MeeKeeChoo remix) – Russia – Eurovision 2018

Julia Samoylova’s team has released a new remix of I WON’T BREAK. The remix was made by MeeKeeChoo — aka the song’s co-authors Netta Nimrodi and Arie Burshtein.

The music video was made by Alexey Golubev, who shot the original video and also creating the stage performance for Julia. The video is showing the mother nature in it’s pure energy. Such as mountains, space and water as the main origin of life. Julia has never seen the ocean before, and she is so fond of enjoying the water and it’s magnificent power. That is why coming to Lisbon is not only her dream to participate in Eurovision, but also to see the ocean for the first time in her life.

Not to mention that this remix is also a present to Eurovision fans who love the dance-floor. “I Can’t wait to meet the fans at Euroclub and to have fun together. I have even prepared some fancy outfit for the parties”, says Julia.
