Yamination studios is situated in Birmingham, which is about an hour and a half from my home town of Milton Keynes. The company was founded in 2009 by Drew Roper, a multi-award winning stop-motion animator. The studio was created to spread the joy, charm and originality of animation.
You'll have seen some of the work done by Yamination studios if you saw the 'Barry the Biscuit Boy' advert for Cravendale, Yaminations helped Blink Ink in London to product that.
It's inspiring to see a local animation company being sucessful. Also seeing their puppets and how they've been made as part of their portfolio is inspiring myself to potentially apply to work for them in the future. I love their style and feel like they could be a good fit, if of course they are looking for model makers.
Currently in production is "at-issue"
"An unemployed puppet has the chance to audition for his dream job, following in his father’s footsteps, but a bizarre affliction strikes him, and unless he can learn to be himself his dream will not come true."
