AN­I­MA­TORS be­hind many chil­dren’s tele­vi­sion char­ac­ters are of­fer­ing free work­shops on Skye.

King Rollo Films, creators of Spot, Maisy, Mama, Mirabelle, Humf and Poppy Cat, nor­mally charges £500 per week for the cour­ses at its Devon base and asks for a showreel from any prospec­tive clients, but the firm is of­fer­ing a free course in the hope of build­ing a work­force on the is­land, amid plans to de­velop a se­ries there.

High­lands and Is­lands En­ter­prise and XpoNorth are back­ing the scheme, with work­shops due to be held in De­cem­ber and Jan­uary in Sab­hal Mòr Os­taig UHI.
