Film fans get advice
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.”
