Company History: Formed in May 2007, The Big Beast Company brought together the various craft and business skills of its partners, Steve Merchant and Paul Barrett-Brown.  With over sixty years experience between them of designing and making props, models, sets, creatures, costumes etc for film, TV, theatre, museums, theme parks, and the like, the partners were confident that a small company specialising in this niche market would be sustainable, and also have the potential for growth.  In 2008 the opportunity to design, develop and build life sized, fully articulated, mannequin horses for use as a dummy, as required by the Fire & Rescue services for large animal rescue training, provided both an additional revenue stream and a secure base from which to 'grow' the company.
