New Pro Foundries based in Middlesex, near west London's Heathrow Airport has been making the Bafta masks for every ceremony since 1976.
Designed by US sculptor Mitzi Cunliffe in 1955 each mask is hand crafted and weighs approximately 2.8kg, the masks are made in batches of 10 and the casting process can take around 3 hours.
A resin model is used to make sand moulds of the mask, liquid metal is poured into the moulds and then the sand is knocked away leaving behind the cast. These casts are then finely shaped, cleaned up and sent off to Bafta to be handed out to the winners.
The men behind the masks are,
Managing Director, Patrick Helly
Molder, Rupert Francis
Foundry Labourer, Tony Broomfield
Furnace man, Billy Smith
Fetler, Anthony Phillips
