About us

Mangostone specialises in the fabrication of props, sets, models, creatures, animatronics and sculpture for the television, film, advertising and games industries.

Facilities at our workshops in Bristol include spray painting, laser cutting, CNC machining, vac forming, moulding, casting, carpentry and metal working. We also offer 3D printing services: we have a fully equipped 3D print farm with 10 FDM and 3 resin printers.

We have made five animated short films for the oscar-winning Aardman Animations. We built many of the animatronic creatures (with cameras for eyes) for the series “Spy in the Oceans” on the BBC. We built the cage for the Netflix series “You”, the King’s Telescope for Bridgerton and the fossil dinosaur skulls in the opening scene of “Prehistoric Planet 2”.

Whether it is the seed of an idea or fully resolved designs, at Mangostone we have the expertise and experience to realise your vision.
