See how model maker Jim Parkyn shapes some of Aardman’s most well-known faces in this 20-minute talk with live model making demonstration.

Jim is a Senior Model Maker at Aardman Animations. He is responsible for creating some of the UK’s most loved Plasticine characters – from Morph to Shaun the Sheep. One of Jim’s first animation jobs was making chicken beaks, heads and wings for the film Chicken Run. Since then he has worked on lots of projects including Wallace and Gromit, Creature Comforts, Shaun the Sheep and Timmy Time.
