Full service creative communications agency Keltie Cochrane is to visit local school children to encourage the designers of the future after Tilery Primary School was inspired to create their own animation after watching the agency’s Saga series for the BBC.

“We'll be visiting Tilery Primary in particular to express our thanks and show them some of the techniques used to create animations,” said Jason Cochrane, managing director of Keltie Cochrane.

The pupils of Tilery Primary School created their own animation (see video) after watching Keltie Cochrane’s BBC ‘Viking Sagas’ series as part of their creative writing project.

Of Tilery Primary School’s efforts, Cochrane told The Drum: “I think they've done a better job!

“We're truly flattered and extremely impressed by the children's animation. It has given us all a heart-warming lift in the studio and we plan to give the school the original illustrated storyboards in recognition of their efforts. Although they are very young, it's inspiring to see the quality of their work, and more importantly to hear how enthusiastic they were about the creative process.”

Keltie Cochrane’s decision to work with local schools is the latest effort by agencies to get involved in creative and digital education from Spider Online and The Drum’s Digital Dragons programme for Glasgow High Schools, and BIMA’s D Day UK-wide initiative which is now in its second year and currently recruiting schools and agencies.

Cochrane added that the agency was also about to embark on a summer student programme entitled ‘Future Thinkers’ offering placements for the creative digital courses around the North East with a focus to “train in studio situations with the aim to employing at least three candidates this year.”
