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.
