We were lucky enough to find ourselves at the British Academy Children’s Awards 2018! We caught up with our Head of Talent, Jenna Shaw and Member, Lara Cooper-Chadwick to find out about the evening.

In Jenna’s Words:

“When we received our tickets to Children’s BAFTA’s, we knew straight away that we had to take along one of our members! Our Members are at the heart of everything we do so it seemed only right that they should be there with us!”

“Lara has been an active member of the National Youth Film Academy and was the most recent winner of our Members only £1K Challenge.”

In Lara’s Words:

“I had a brilliant time at The British Academy Children’s Awards and I’m very grateful to National Youth Film Academy for the opportunity to go. It was inspiring to be in a room filled to the brim with some of the best talents in TV and Film. Seeing that red carpet for the first time was totally surreal and a little bit scary. Once we sat down for dinner the atmosphere was so warm and welcoming that my nerves quickly melted.”

“Was great to spread the word about everything the National Youth Film Academy is doing and, of course, have a good dance at the end. It was without question a night I’ll remember for my whole life! ”
