Tools such as dig­i­tal SLR cam­eras and stop-mo­tion soft­ware like Dragon­frame have been around for a while. As have tablets for draw­ing and sto­ry­board­ing, but Sprox­ton ad­mits on Early Man that di­rec­tor Nick Park was ini­tially hes­i­tant to adopt them.

“He still loves draw­ing,” says Sprox­ton. “A lot of our artists still draw on pa­per and some of them will scan stuff in, but in­creas­ingly they go straight into a tablet. With Nick, it took him a lit­tle while, but now of course he loves it be­cause you can just erase stuff and change it, and you don’t have to re­peat draw­ings.”
