Last August, thanks to Fermynwoods Contemporary Art and Corby Borough Council, children from Corby took part in an animation project led by the Tate galleries and Aardman Animation to create The Tate Movie, an animation film made by and for children in the UK.
The completed film ‘The Itch of the Golden Nit‘ is now available to view on BBC iPlayer until 4:54pm on Tuesday 19th July.
Eleven-year-old Beanie’s bland life is changed for ever when he is sent on a mission. Armed only with laser lip-gloss and a pair of blend-in pants he has to save his parents from Evil Stella and return the Golden Nit to its rightful place at the heart of the sun, thereby saving the universe.
Featuring a cast of David Walliams, Miranda Hart, Catherine Tate and Rik Mayall.
