BAFTA Award winning short film
Poles Apart is a 12-minute Stop-Motion animation film set in a melting Arctic landscape. It tells the story of an unlikely friendship between a hungry Polar bear, Nanuk, and an enthusiastic Grizzly bear, Aklak.
The furry ball-and-socket armature puppets were put together by Mackinnon and Saunders. Voices for the bears were performed by Helena Bonham Carter and Joseph May.
