Last weekend, talented BA (Hons) Animation alumni Jamie Badminton and Rufus Blacklock from Karrot Animation donned their tuxedos as they attended the 2017 Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena.

Jamie Badminton, and fellow 2002 graduate Tim O’Sullivan, opened London-based animation studio, Karrot Entertainment in 2007, to develop projects of their own.

Today Karrot Entertainment employs 40 people, around 30 of whom are AUB alumni. Karrot Animation are the creators of BAFTA winning CBeebies series ‘Sarah & Duck’.

Jamie is Series Producer and Tim is Director and Co-Created the show with fellow alumni Sarah Gomes Harris, a 2006 AUB graduate.

As of this Saturday they can now add Emmy winners to their impressive track record.

The Christmas Special ‘The Snowy Day’ that Karrot Animation produced for Amazon Studios was nominated in five categories and won two of them, taking home the award for ‘Outstanding Pre-School Animated Programme’ and ‘Music Direction & Composition’.
