In addition to the six episodes there are two features - "The Mini Making of Shaun" and "Building a Pig".
"The Mini Making of Shaun" shows the animation process the Aardman crew follow to get the storyboards done, props and figures made, sets constructed, images shot, and so on. It's actually a great introduction to the many steps of stop-motion animation.
And in "Building a Pig," Harriet Thomas, one of the model makers for Aardman, works with a group of kids to create one of the naughty pigs from the series out of clay. As we watched, I learned some great new techniques for working with clay to form this type of character model and will hopefully get a chance to try it out with my kids.
If you're a fan of Wallace and Gromit or any of Aardman Animations' productions, Shaun the Sheep is a great example of well done, modern stop-motion animation. And if you have kids, they'll love to see the antics of these wonderful characters. Be sure to pick up a copy of Shaun the Sheep: Sheep on the Loose at your local retailer or online.
