Q. What software do you use?
A. Simon’s Cat has been made using a variety of animation software over the years. Originally in Adobe Flash. Then TV Paint (and still on occasions) and most recently using CelAction.

Q. Why does it take so long to make each Simon’s Cat film?
A. Animation is a slow process and Simon’s Cat films pay particular attention to observed, real life cat behaviour. Historically the films were traditionally animated frame by frame. More recently we use CelAction which has sped up the process but still requires a lot of care and attention. Each film takes approximately 6-9 weeks to make, depending on complexity, number of characters and special effects.

      +Simon’s Cat I know it well. Often when I walk up or down the stairs the cat decides she wants to go where I’m going and runs up/down the stairs ahead of me and often almost tripping me up as she runs by my feet.

      Simon’s Cat mine grabs me round the ankles on the way upstairs.

    • Hannah Reynolds says:

      +Simon’s Cat ohhh yes. I had a series of cats who were stair-carpet-coloured, no matter what colour the carpet. They would lie in wait for the unsuspecting person coming down stairs. My coccyx will never be the same again.

    • P Bangs says:

      +Hannah Reynolds ouch!

    • Will McCormick says:

      +Simon’s Cat Can’t wait to see it. I’ve introduced my 74 year old mom to Simon’s Cat and we both follow your videos religiously. So many good chuckles and true observations about cats. Keep up the great work!

    Hey Simon, I loved it!!!  Laughing out loud as even if you move your finger under the sheets, my cat jumps up and pounces the same way, so I would have loved to see him do this!!  As always, poor kitty loses to the mouse.  Merry Christmas Simon and thank you for so many wonderful moments.
