Aardman Animations are back on Tiree!

We are delighted to welcome Jim Parkyn from Aardman Animations back to Tiree. He loved his trip last time and was eager to return.

This time he will be working with S1 & S2 students for 2 days with Jack Lockhart and Alasdair Satchel. Each student will make their own animation about their experience growing up on Tiree and what Scotland means to them. The finished animations will be screened at The Oban Phoenix on the 7th October and will tour with the Screen Machine’s programme. The animations will also be submitted to a competition that the National Library of Scotland is running.

While Jim is here he will introduce a special Scratch and Sniff version of Aardman Classic: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. This will be held in An Talla at 6pm on Thursday 20th September.

Screen Argyll are delighted to be working in partnership with Regional Screen Scotland and the Highland and Island Enterprise as part of the Year of Young People. This project has also been made possible by the support of Into Film and is part of a national celebration of animation called Anim18.
