How do stop motion tv shows even exist?

How do stop motion tv shows even exist?

Legitimately what studio is actually willing to let them do something that takes that much time and effort for anything other than a theatrical movie?

      many such cases
      The answer to your question is Aardman. They're so soulful even their "bad" stuff is just mediocre at worst. They have a deep passion for the craft that fuels them more than money does.

      Then again, I haven't watched Chicken Run 2 yet.

        As someone who watched it recently, it's alright, unnecessary as a sequel to a very complete standalone film but like you say their sheer passion for the craft really shines through.

    They knew their craft, and use it well. And to answer your question: it's time,revenue, watch time, and a bunch of other factors that cause many stop motion shows to have very short seasons

    Don't European studios get art grants if they apply in order to make passionate animation that a country believes will benefit the art scene?

        It's not the medium that determines how long an animation takes, it is what you do with it. 3/4 talking heads is quick and easy, complex choreography and effects takes a long time.

    it doesn't actually take more effort than other forms of animation, at least time-wise
    on something like bob the builder, to take a well-known example, the animation team was expected to turn out twelve seconds of animation a day

    They had the infrastructure for it and boomers with ample experience

    IT doesn't actually take that much longer. You also have to remember that for shows like Shaun the sheep are also a lot more minimalistic than Ardman's theater releases.

      Huh. I never actually sat down and tried catching the shortcuts and reuses implemented in Shaun cartoons. You're probably right

    Shaun and Bitzer are a couple.

    To answer your question, animation regardless if it's CGI, hand drawn or stop motion takes a lot of time. And often, when a show is announced, they already have at least two seasons done and can release them weekly, meaning they have time to make new episodes as long as they aren't cancelled.

      But how'd Shaun the Sheep avoid cancellation for such a consistent string of time? What is Aardman's secret?

        It's incredibly popular around the world. Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Spain, France, Mexico, Brazil, etc. etc. all love it and it gets shown regularly. The only place that doesn't care for it is America and funnily enough, Aardman's starting to recently sell their creativity to appease those morons. Chicken Run 2 has so much Americanism storybeats and lines it's painfully obvious who their audience was meant to be. It was disappointing (not bad) and not worth the wait.

    I don't know how other shows did it, but aardmans got a money saver technique; prepare a specific set and shoot as many scenes of multiple episodes for that one set as possible
