Film fans get ad­vice

Glamorgan Gazette - - Your Views -

BUD­DING film­mak­ers got ca­reers ad­vice and took part in a work­shop or­gan­ised by Into Film Cymru.

The ed­u­ca­tion char­ity joined forces with Bait Stu­dio to of­fer ad­vice to stu­dents from Maesteg High School in­ter­ested in get­ting into the film in­dus­try.

There was also a VFX work­shop for young film­mak­ers, adding some ex­tra sparkle to a film brought along by the stu­dents.

Known for its work on fea­ture films such as The Ma­chine, The Call Up, and Don’t Knock Twice, Bait Stu­dio is in­creas­ingly us­ing the Into Film Fes­ti­val to speak di­rectly with stu­dents to spark their in­ter­est in the film­mak­ing in­dus­try – the fastest grow­ing in­dus­try in Wales.

Peter Rogers, creative pro­ducer at Bait Stu­dio, said: “A ca­reer in the creative in­dus­tries should be firmly in the minds of our young peo­ple in Wales.

“As the fastest grow­ing sec­tor in our econ­omy, it’s in the in­ter­ests of Bait Stu­dio to find and nur­ture home­grown tal­ent.

“We’re acutely aware that the best pos­si­ble peo­ple for our com­pany may come from fam­i­lies where there’s lit­tle money to fund in­spir­ing trips to the cin­ema.

“That’s why we sup­port Into Film Cymru, so we can spark as many young minds as pos­si­ble in Wales – and find the tal­ent we need.

“It’s also great fun to add our ef­fects to their films.”
