Now this is what we like to see – children getting involved in animation from a young age. This week we heard that Tate is teaming up with Aardman Animations, the team behind Wallace and Gromit, to create a new film. And, they want children to help them brainstorm. Check out the video on our YouTube channel.
The Tate Movie Project’s aim is to introduce children to key aspects of film-making while teaching them some basic animation skills. I have to agree with a blog post I read on Boxwish – the thought of kids creating film is really original and should generate some amusing sound effects.
The entertainment factor is just one part of it. I think it’s a great opportunity to give young people a taste of this exciting industry. Who knows? We might see the children here at Escape in years to come.
The news got us thinking about other children’s movie projects out there which will spark interest at an early age – let us know if there are any in your area. Also, what other methods are out there to get kids interested in animation from an early age?
