SES were tasked with supplying an exhibition trailer as part of a national three-month tour of production workshops for The Tate Movie Project. The Tate Movie Project, supported by London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, was the first of its kind - an animated movie made by and for children across the UK
The Tate Movie Project used great artworks to inspire 5-13 year-olds nationwide to contribute their ideas to a movie. The material created by the children was then brought together by Tate, Aardman Animations and creative agency Fallon.
CBBC's Blue Peter also followed the real-life production process and the tour, encouraging children to get involved.
The SES workshop team delivered an expanding exhibition trailer from its hire stock which folded out into a state-of-the-art creative learning studio, complete with sound studio space, computers and a screening facility, all of which could be cleared away for workshops and activities. SES also provided a full interior and exterior vehicle wrap to finish.
The tour was fully operated by SES providing a team of experienced operational crew to deliver, set-up and de-rig, as well as on-site crew to resolve any issues and keep the trailer secure. SES provided an all-round service, from manufacture through to overseeing the live events.
The finished film, The Itch of the Golden Nit was broadcast on BBC TV. The film also holds a world record title for most individual contributions to an animated film.
