Ahead of the release of the new Guillermo del Toro feature film, retelling the story of Pinocchio, original puppets and maquettes designed by the award-winning animation and model-making company Mackinnon and Saunders from their studio in Altrincham, will go on display at the Waterside in Sale as part of a brand new exhibition celebrating their 30-year career. As well as ‘Pinocchio’, there will be puppets and models paying homage to their longstanding working relationship with Hollywood director, Tim Burton, including from ‘Corpse Bride’ and ‘Frankenweenie’ as well as work from their contribution to Wes Anderson’s acclaimed ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’.
