Filmmaker and former punk star, Richard Jobson, is tonight hosting a masterclass in Glasgow on short film making, as part of an UK-wide competition celebrating the 60th birthday of the British Academy of the Film and Television Arts, BAFTA.
‘Sixty Seconds of Fame’ invites filmmakers to produce minute-long films around the word, ‘Celebrate’. As well as BAFTA’s birthday, it is ten years since mobile telephone giants, Orange, has been associated with the academy.
A tie-up with the BBC means local broadcasting of local winners, with an UK winner destined for a BBC One screening. Regional winners are to be invited to attend next year’s BAFTA Awards ceremony.
Jobson speaks tonight at BBC Scotland’s Queen Margaret Drive HQ. For more details, email here.
