Two years ago, I messaged Makinnon and Saunders asking what their work entailed. I wanted to know in hopes that if they did animation, I would of liked to of applied for their' work experience.
Unfortunately, they messaged me back with the news I wasn't after.
They said they create puppets for films, e.g. Coraline, Fantastic Mr Fox, Fifi and the Flower Tots, etc. They work in Altringham:
I think the work and process that goes into the creation of the puppets is amazing, despite them not being animated by Makinnon & Saunders.
