BFI & Aardman Launch A Partnership To Develop New Animation Feature Films

Wallace and Gromit BFI & Aardman Launch A Partnership To Develop New Animation Feature Films

The British Film Institute (BFI) is teaming with Aardman Animations, the four-time Oscar-winning studio behind ‘Wallace & Gromit’ and ‘Shaun the Sheep,’ in launching a new scheme today backed by £1 million of Lottery funding to help support the development and production of new animated feature films and the creative talent making them.

The BFI will provide funding for up to two years, to three filmmakers or filmmaker teams (writers, directors, producers) to develop their projects with dedicated development support through the “BFI Aardman Animation Development Lab”. The process for developing animated feature films is lengthy and expensive limiting the opportunities for British filmmakers. Aardman will work with the filmmakers – animators, writers, directors, producers – to shape their ideas with the aim of emerging with a set of ‘greenlight’ materials for their films, ready to advance to production. The closing time and date for applications is at 5pm on November 28th.
