Oscar for animation studio.
« on: 15:13:35, 13/03/23 »


A studio in suburban Greater Manchester can now boast an Oscar after its creations helped clinch best animated feature at this year's ceremony.

Mackinnon and Saunders, based in Altrincham, created the award winning puppets in Guillermo del Toro's reimagining of Pinocchio.

The hit Netflix stop-motion animation relied on dozens of characters constructed by the Altrincham studio.

"It means the world to our team", studio co-founder Peter Saunders said.

Founded 30 years ago, Mackinnon and Saunders have brought to life some of children's most beloved TV characters including Bob the Builder, Postman Pat and the new Clangers.
