“I’ve been particularly impressed by Peter’s grasp of this complex subject and his creativity and ideas. He has the rare ability to make a dry and boring subject, humorous and fun.” - Zoe Edmeades, The Security Company Ltd.
“Peter understood our requirements perfectly and produced a captivating animation which very clearly communicated our concept. He was highly professional, easy and flexible to work with and always delivered on time.” - Gemma Teal from the Hospital Foodie project, 2012
“Peter Baynton’s direction is confident, and with co-writer Davey Spens he has woven a tale of agricultural exploitation and corporate two-facedness. It’s entertaining, with good human and animal character design.” - Andrew Robertson, Eye For Film
“Baynton’s delightfully dark animation, partly inspired by his grandmother, gives an old folks’ home a sinister Soylent Green-like underbelly, and has rightly won a huge number of awards.” - Yolanda Zappaterra in Design Week
“Lovely animation, an atmospheric score, delicate characterisation and a crowd-pleasing punchline make it a sweet little nugget…”
- Patricia Dobson in Screen International
“Director Peter Baynton’s style echoes the Cartoon Network hit Fosters Home For Imaginary Friends…with strong characters and sparse, colourful backgrounds… It’s told with a lot of fun touches and was the most commercially astute animation featuring in the 2007 McLaren programme, and sure to delight young and old alike.” - Trinity, Eye For Film
