Don't let the name fool you. Cod Steaks has nothing to do with cod, or steaks!
Cod Steaks is a studio that was created 25 years ago in Bristol for the creation of props and sets of all kinds. Including for stop motion commercials and films you may have already seen. Basically they are a hive of hand craft artisans who will create just about anything anyone could possibly need in 3D. The more popular Aardman Animation Studio has used their services to create sets and props for Wallace and Gromit. They also made sets for a recent commercial called Lynx for Passion Pictures. You can see the final commercial here, and in-progress pictures from the spot here.
Essentially Cod Steaks is the secret weapon used by producers to get the job done, while humbly accepting jobs with little media attention of their accomplishments. You can see the official Cod Steaks web site here. You can also visit their official Facebook fan page here, which has many pictures of their work.
