Just thought I'd share some news here of new stop motion feature films in the making in the UK. Plenty going on! :)
new Aardman feature film 'Early man': http://www.aardman.com/aardman-and-studiocanal-announce-2018-releas...
New Wes Anderson stop motion feature about dogs... http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/bill-murray-joins-wes-anders...
and for a while already it's been busy in a brand new studio in Wales, for the film 'Chuck Steel, Night of the Trampires'. You can watch the short film 'Chuck Steel, raging balls of steel justice' for free on their website too now: http://nightofthetrampires.com/#section-trampires
I knew about Chuck Steel - not my kind of thing, but I can see it is very well done. But I didn't know anything at all about the other two. Both sound interesting. Great news for stop motion puppetmakers and animators in the UK, there might be some work around!
Yes, same here. I think the Chuck Steel one is very well done, I know quite a few people who are working on it now, and I think it will look great and have very good animation, etc. But it is not really my kind of thing. Curious to see it though.
As for the other two... I am/will be involved with some armature making work. :)
They are really in the beginning stages, so yes there should be plenty going on for model makers and later on animators.
