Axis Studios provided VFX supervision for Shaun the Sheep: The Movie. This project marked the beginning of Axis and Aardman’s landmark working relationship.
The film is a stop motion, animated adventure film based on the original Shaun the Sheep series. The series was created by Nick Park as a comedic spin-off of the Wallace and Gromit film, A Close Shave. Shaun, the main character, decides to take a day off and have fun, but he gets a little more action than he bargained for – a mixup with a farmer, a caravan, and a very steep hill leads Shaun and flock to the big city. Shaun is faced with the task of returning everyone safely to the green grass of home.
