”Up there with An Inconvenient Truth” The INDEPENDENT on SUNDAY
We make animations for large-scale outdoor projections. Our 2012 “Evolumental” on Exeter Cathedral (commissioned by "Animated Exeter") involved 8 separate films on 8 separate synchronized projectors all linking the individual animations into a vast living picture splashed across the cathedral, with an additional revolving projector carrying creatures and birds around the Cathedral Square and across all its shops and houses. This event was commissioned by Animated Exeter. We’ve also made large-scale projections for Bridgwater Museum and Bridgwater Carnival and more recently the National Trust’s Greenways in Torbay

If you think an animation using Forkbeard's unique style, wit and good humour might be the key to realising a successful project or engaging your audience and visitors in new ways, we would like to hear from you. Just let us know by emailing us or contacting us by phone or mail.

We had started creating cartoon animations for use in our stage shows from the very start, some time before the hilarious possibilities of live interaction between stage and screen began to emerge. Cartoon and drawing (mostly the work of Tim Britton) became another highly individual trademark of the multi-media performance work we were becoming so well known for. The mechanical sets and sculptural gadgetry we involve in our performance is perfectly complimented by the absurdist situations and surreal worlds the cartoon characters inhabit.


We tak commissions for specially devised animated cartoons and films to explain or make accessible often complex issues and themes through fun and good humour. Most recent clients include The Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, Durlston Country Park and Torquay Museum. An excellent example of this area of our work is “The Jurassic Coast: A Mighty Tale”
