A Shaun The Sheep Movie Farmageddon – Con & Bex Talk New Characters and Farming with Directors Richard Phelan & Will Becher

A Shaun The Sheep Movie Farmageddon – Con & Bex Talk New Characters and Farming with Directors Richard Phelan & Will Becher!!!

Tea or Coffee and why? Con age 12

Richard Phelan – Coffee because we’ve got work lots of hours and because it helps us stay excited and awake.

Will Becher – I agree.

What’s the best thing about Aardman clay? Con age 12

Richard Phelan – It’s just so versatile and on this film it’s really colourful too. We’ve tried to make it more colourful than normal so we’ve got nice exciting colours for our alien. And its squishy so you can make lots of funny shapes with it.

Would you like to be a farmer with lots of sheep? Bex age 8

Will Becher – I feel like a farmer with lots of sheep already. Yeah I’d love it. I’d spend all day with the sheep and the farmer so I have an understanding of what it’s like. My Uncle used to be a farmer so he had lots of sheep. And a lot of our Editors grew up on farms so they record a lot of sheep sounds for us.

If you could have one animal from Shaun the Sheep start talking human in real life – who would you choose and why would you choose them? Con age 12

Richard Phelan – Well I would love to meet the real Bitzer. If I could have a dog who could tell me how he felt that would be great. And he’s quite helpful. He does lots of jobs around the place.

Will Becher – That’s a great answer. I’d like to meet Bitzer and hang out with Bitzer. And having a dog that could talk would be lots of fun!!!

If you ever a met an alien what would you do? Bex age 12

Will Becher – Say Hello.

Richard Phelan – I’d take it for a little tour as I’d assume it was coming to Aardman. And show it all the cool stuff we’ve got. And we’d have a party, do some dancing and eat lots of sweets.

What’s been the hardest thing to film in Shaun the Sheep Farmageddon and why was it so hard? Con age 12

Will Becher – The Tower at the theme park is so tall it wouldn’t fit in the studio. So we have to lie it down across several units.

Con – Yeah we saw that.

Will Becher – So that’s been the hardest thing to shoot and create a sense of how tall it is. And all the animators have to turn their heads sideways whist they work to understand what it might look like.

Richard Phelan – And the other thing we really struggled with was the alien spaceship because it’s full of all these controllers. And no one knows how to actually control it. So we had to figure out all the different buttons and what they do in the film.

What will people like most about this new Shaun the Sheep film? Bex age 8

Will Becher – I think they’ll like Lula. She’s our new character and she’s a lot of fun. I think she’ll steal the show and she’ll become everyone’s favourite hopefully.

Richard Phelan – We get to take Shaun out of the farm, all around town and then into outer space. It’s really exciting!!!

Who is your favourite new character in Shaun the Sheep Farmageddon and why do you like them? Con age 12

Richard Phelan – It’s got to be Lula because she’s our alien and she’s totally brad new to Shaun’s world. She’s just real good fun to meet because she’s a bit like Shaun – a bit cheeky. She’s quite excitable and she’s actually hard to control – so when Shaun and Lula become friends they end up causing all sorts of havoc together.

What do you call a sheep with no legs? Con age 12

Will Becher – I don’t know?

Con - A cloud!!!

(Both Laugh)

Richard Phelan – Brilliant

Will Becher – A Cloud!!!
