Animatronics & Special Effects Make-Up

For the past 25 years Crawley Creatures have been making animatronics for film, TV, commercials and exhibitions. From life sized dinosaurs to dragonflies, pigs to penguins, mammoths to mice and sparrows to spiders! We use our in-house sculpting, 3D CAD design, laser scanning, 3D rapid prototyping, engineering, casting and finishing whether the creature be scaly, feathered or furred, or a soft fabric covering a performer in a costume with animatronic or prosthetic face movements.

We supply full sized static and moving creature and figure displays as well as pure engineering solutions. We have a very large selection of moulds for creatures, so you never know but we may have what you are looking for in stock!

Crawley Creatures also have a long experienced in creating extreme make-up effects through prosthetics where we use the latest silicone materials and face and figure casting techniques.

We have received 2 Bafta Awards, 4 Bafta nominations, 1 Emmy, 3 Emmy Nominations and 2 Royal Television Society Awards for our work.
