Mackinnon and Saunders

With over 30 years of experience, Ian Mackinnon and Peter Saunders’ talented team have had the privilege of bringing some of the world’s best known animated characters to life – from Bob the Builder, Postman Pat and Fifi and the Flowertots, to Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride and Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr Fox.

As well as building puppets, they have a complete studio facility in Altrincham, near Manchester, which is geared towards stop-motion animation.

Although they have worked together for many years, recently Loose Moose and Mackinnon & Saunders have started co-producing television commercials.
