Bristol independent animation production studio A Productions is celebrating being nominated for Daytime Emmy Awards, organised by The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, as part of the team behind Sesame Workshop’s first-ever animated Sesame Street special – The Monster at the End of This Story – and spin-off YouTube short – Sesame Street: The Monster at the End of Your Story with Grover and Elmo.
Sesame Workshop is the non-profit educational organisation behind Sesame Street and more than 50 years of award-winning children’s television. Both the animated special and YouTube short are based on Sesame Workshop’s all-time best-selling picture book The Monster at the End of This Book.
Katherine McQueen, joint managing director of A Productions, said: “We are over the moon and proud that our wonderful team has helped create a Daytime Emmy award-nominated first-ever animated special for Sesame Street. This recognition is testament to the incredible energy, passion and commitment the team shows in everything they do and we congratulate everyone involved.”
Richard Lambert, Films at 59 Dubbing Mixer, said: “Over fifty years after Sesame Street was first broadcast, it was an honour to create the soundscape for this new animation. It was extremely important to us that the audio world was immediately familiar for regular Sesame Street viewers and generations of children that have grown up with it. Through Foley work, audio editing and processing we were able to build a rich sound world that connects with the viewer and brings the story to life.”
A Productions is an internationally recognised, creative-led, multi-discipline animation production studio with a strong track record for producing award-winning children’s content for broadcast.
The studio’s team is based in Bristol, a hotbed of production for TV and film.
