‘Ron’s Gone Wrong’ wins ‘Best Longform’ at the British Animation Awards 2022!

DNEG’s first animated feature wins at Awards held at London’s BFI Southbank

Going wrong has never gone so right! We are thrilled to announce that Locksmith Animation’s Ron’s Gone Wrong was recognised with the ‘Best Longform’ award at the British Animation Awards on Thursday March 10 in London.

Presented by Miles Jupp at London’s BFI Southbank Centre, the award is a testament to the close collaboration between Locksmith and DNEG Animation to bring the world of Barney and Ron to life.

“Ron’s Gone Wrong is a dynamic feature with a fun comedic tone and interesting characterisation which has a clear message about the interaction between technology and children,” the panel said on the BAA Website. “The panel also recognises this has been made in very challenging times for animated features in the UK.”

A lesser-known fact about the awards is that every winner is also awarded a unique piece of artwork. The Ron’s Gone Wrong team was awarded a unique print from filmmaker and writer Chris Shepherd!

“We have been amazed at the quality of the entrants for this year’s British Animation Awards and would like to offer our heartfelt congratulations to all the winners and nominees,” said BAA director Helen Brunsdon and producer Kieran Argo. “After a particularly tough couple of years animation continues to be one of the most productive and creative industries in the U.K.”

Congratulations to our friends at Locksmith and to our amazing ‘Ron’s Gone Wrong’ team, whose talent and creativity is recognised by this award! You can find more about the awards and this year’s winners on the BAA website.
