BBC1's Animated 'Stick Man' Aims to Find the Charming Imperfections in CGI

Publish date:

BBC1's new animated holiday special Stick Man premieres on Christmas Day and is based on the children's book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. It's the fourth of Donaldson and Scheffler's books to be made into an animated special, but the first one to be done in all CGI as the first three CG characters but practical sets.

"We wanted it to be as close as possible to the other films," producer Michael Rose explains to Televisual. "Computers are always trying to smooth things out and you can get a very floaty effect that you see in some cheap TV animation. So the art was really to push the computers and artists involved, to base everything as closely as possible on real models and their imperfections.”
