Somethin' Else brings paintings to life for BBC Learning
Presented by Eleanor Nairne, each film sees her dive into the illustrated and animated world of an oil painting.
LONDON.- Content design and creation company, Somethin’ Else has been appointed by BBC Learning to produce a series of entertaining short films (10x6’) aimed at getting 7-11 year old children interested in art and art galleries.

The films complement the BBC’s Your Paintings website, which is a joint initiative with the Public Catalogue Foundation and participating collections and museums in the UK . They will also air in BBC Learning Zone’s late-night educational programming block on BBC Two on the night of April 16th/ morning of April 17th and be added to the Learning Zone’s Class Clips online database.

Presented by Eleanor Nairne – who holds an MA in History of Art and works as the collections coordinator for arts organisation Artangel – each film sees her dive into the illustrated and animated world of an oil painting; the ten paintings have been selected from a range of eras and art movements and can be found in galleries across the UK as well as on the Your Paintings site. She explores the painting as it comes to life around her, giving a light-hearted and humorous introduction to its style, the artist and the historical context.

Ian Sharpe, Head of Video, Somethin’ Else, says: “These films are designed to demystify art for children and encourage them to check out the real paintings in their local art gallery. Together with our recent projects, they reflect Somethin’ Else’s extensive experience in creating engaging content across a variety of platforms for young audiences.”

Katy Jones, Executive Producer for the BBC Learning Zone, adds: ‘The films are visually stunning and very inspiring. Eleanor Nairne makes a wonderful children’s guide to art and paintings’.
