A Cam­bus­lang woman and Castlemilk man have been nom­i­nated for pres­ti­gious prizes at next week’s BAFTA Scot­land New Ta­lent Award. Christo­pher Martin from Castlemilk has been nom­i­nated for Act­ing Per­for­mance Male cat­e­gory and Louise Daw­son of Cam­bus­lang is up in the De­sign cat­e­gory.

Christo­pher has been nom­i­nated for his role in Open Mike. In the film, he ex­plores the life of Michael, an adult with autism who lives in soli­tude. He is shy around peo­ple and ad­heres to strict daily rou­tines. His reg­u­lar vis­its to the lo­cal pub are his only form of com­pan­ion­ship. How­ever, be­ing in the wrong place at the wrong time soon sees Michael’s nor­mal pat­tern of func­tion dis­rupted.

Christo­pher wrote the char­ac­ter and screen­play, he re­searched autism and in­ter­acted with those who live with the con­di­tion.

Louise has been nom­i­nated for her work on Starfish, an emo­tional story about a sib­ling re­la­tion­ship.

Louise was nom­i­nated in 2015 un­der ‘Best Fac­tual’ as a co-pro­ducer for the doc­u­men­tary ‘Late night in Glas­gow’. She is fresh out of univer­sity, hav­ing only just grad­u­ated in July 2015. ‘Starfish’ was part of her grad­u­a­tion show­case.

The BAFTA Scot­land New Ta­lent Awards will take place at Dry­gate Brew­ery in Glas­gow from 6.30pm on April 14.
