DNEG and Locksmith Animation
Founded by producer and director Sarah Smith (left) and producer Julie Lockhart (right), alongside Elisabeth Murdoch (centre), Locksmith Animation’s ambition is to become a UK contemporary for US animation giants Disney-Pixar and DreamWorks. The new studio is backed by DNEG, and we are proud to be Locksmith’s digital production partner.
Locksmith and DNEG’s first feature animation project ‘Ron’s Gone Wrong’, will be released by 20th Century Studios on October 22, 2021. Directed by Sarah Smith and JP Vine, the film is about the friendship between a 12-year-old boy and a malfunctioning robot.
