“Zane was a great person to have on Animate Project’s Test Flight writing workshops at the Jerwood Space, London. He contributed a great deal, took on ideas and feedback, and used the programme to create a pacy and witty new script – a story well-told – with lots of elegant visual gags, and an unexpected, beautifully drawn-out conclusion. Lovely work.”

“I just wanted to pass on a huge thank you for all your work on the War Within exhibition. The animation has been created with great empathy for the subject, it is beautifully crafted – and above all it is incredibly moving. I couldn’t have asked for anything more.”

“The Digital Fiction Factor approached Fettle for their experience in animation, to create an innovative video animatic to bring a story to life.  The brief was challenging as it asked to communicate a story in visual terms, but without being indicative of a visual style for the story.  Fettle did a good job of breaking down the brief and creating an animatic that effectively communicated the story.  With a tight deadline, the team at Fettle did a great job of turning the brief around, and were a pleasure to work with throughout.”

“Fettle animation were engaged by CBeebies In-House Production to provide artwork and a short taster film for one of our development priorities. The team at Fettle totally understood the tone and creative brief from the outset and supplied the most beautiful and characterful artwork which was wholly in tune with the development team’s vision for the series. The character designs were witty and distinctive and worked extremely well against the highly textured and vibrant backgrounds. The combined result was charming. Fettle are passionate not only about animation but also about story telling. They are collaborative and flexible in their approach and will find the right workflow and animation pipeline for the very specific needs of individual projects. The connection with Animated Yorkshire also gives Fettle access to some of the best animation talent in the UK and, although they are a relatively new company, they are certainly one to watch out for. I wish Fettle the best of luck and look forward to opportunities to work with them in the future.”

” They took a tricky brief and turned it into an imaginative and engaging animation for us. Moreover, they did a great job under hideous time pressure and managed to come up with the goods on time and to budget.  We also worked together to compile some short interviews into a watchable format and Kath worked all hours to make sure it happen.  Thank you for all your hard work, the whole team is delighted with the end results.”

“I initially met the guys at Fettle on a personal level. I was inspired by their passion for animation and saw from them a definite appreciation for the various processes involved in creating good work with commercial sensibilities. I wanted to work with them from that moment and when the opportunity came up, I felt very confident in their ability to fulfil the brief. I was impressed by their commitment to the job, with their experience and expertise coming across in the interaction we had and also in the final work. I look forward to working with them again”
