Production still from Sarah Cox's 3 Ways to Go

Wallace and Gromit-siring Aardman Animations are working alongside the Olympics Legacy Trust charity and creative agency Fallon to harness the creative talent of a million UK primary school children for a film to be showcased at Tate Modern and cinemas across the country.

The 20 minute film – the first to be produced by Tate – will be directed by Sarah Cox, whose many award-winning films include two made for Animate. Children from across the country will be asked to contribute paintings and drawings for the film, and 6000 will be able to take part in 35 workshops with professional animators and Aardman staff. The Ideas and images generated by the children will form the basis for the finished film, which it’s hoped will be completed by autumn 2011.
