BAFTA Kids And Childline Competition
The rate at which technology is changing daily still amazes me. When I compare what Mini Me has today and what she can do – upload pictures to Instagram for example – to what I had at her age, it is amazing how many developments there have been.
When it came to competitions for children, back in ‘my day’ it used to be a case of sending a picture to your favourite tv show for the chance that it may actually be shown on the programme. Nowadays children can be so much more creative and the rewards are outstanding.
BAFTA Kids and Childline have teamed up to offer children and young people aged between 7 and 16 years the opportunity to create a story board, which could actually be turned into a short film by British Filmmakers. An amazing opportunity for any budding creative’s out there!
To encourage the message of morals from an early age, the story board should be created around the idea of helping a friend. To help promote friendship, the story can revolve around any type of friendship and be set anywhere and anytime. Will your friends be good listeners, super strong or will they have secret super powers?
To create your storyboard you can made from collages, photographs, drawings or even stick men! Which in my case, even now stick men would be the best that I could muster!
The winner will have their storyboard brought to life in the form of a short live action film or animation! Accompanied by a parent or guardian, the winner will be invited to London where they can visit the studio to see the final film being made.
Two lucky runners-up will receive an annual pass to Cineworld cinemas and a digital video camera. This really is such an amazing opportunity for any young, budding creative to be part of something really special.
