In this third and final section of this Shaun the Sheep The Movie resource focuses on how sound is added to stop-motion animation - from the smallest footstep to the loudest baa and gives pupils tips on how to create their own soundtracks. 

Jess delves into the world of music and sound design, discovering the way a film's musical score can change the feel of a scene, and subtly influence the audience's experience of the film. Learn about Foley sound which is the way sound effects from any number of environments and settings are all created in one room, using a variety of props. Jess even gets some final filmmaking tips from Peter Lord, co-founder of Aardman Animations.
