Partington has spent the past 16 years as head of animation at Manchester-based post-production company Flix Facilities. He most recently worked on World According to Grandpa and Dog Loves Books, and has credits on numerous Bafta-nominated and winning productions including Poppies and Old Jack’s Boat.

At Three Arrows Media, also based in Manchester, he will series produce and advise on a range of titles for the company as it seeks to develop animation and mixed-media projects, alongside live-action titles, for the international market.

His wealth of experience working across quality animated projects for the children’s and family market will be invaluable for Three Arrows Media as it looks to develop its international offering.”
