Designed to promote creativity, Bafta’s 60 Seconds of Fame compo aims to give proles the tools and ‘know how’ to create their very-own short movie. That’s why they’re asking fledgling filmmakers from D+C to submit a 60-second short, based around the rather boring theme of ‘celebrate’. Surely the theme ‘shit, my bastard helicopter’s on fire’ would’ve been a lot more exciting.
Either way, the winning flick will be featured during the coverage of The Orange BAFTAs on February 11, and the winning director will be invited to the ceremony, where they can rub shoulders with the world’s most famous actors, screenwriters and directors. Oh, and Ant and Dec.
Anybody aged 16 or over can enter, so check out the BAFTA site for more details. The deadline for entries is January 4, so you’d better get a wriggle on.
