On Friday 10th October two year 8 students from Barry Comprehensive School assisted with the launch of a WRU competition in collaboration with ‘Into Film Cymru’.
The competition criteria wants members to create storyboards for the WRU’s ‘Scorch’ character – the winners work will be animated and shown at WRU events.
Cameron McAllister and Louie Raven, both members of ‘Into Film’ at Barry Comprehensive (which runs on Mondays after school), were the first Welsh representatives of ‘Into Film’’s UK wide Youth Advisory Council and have attended termly meetings in London.
The boys were approached to take part in the launch in light of their previous efforts representing ‘Into Film’ at the Welsh BAFTAs.
At the launch Cameron and Louie interviewed Welsh actor Julian Lewis Jones (who starred in Clint Eastwood’s ‘Invictus’ alongside Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman) and Welsh Rugby star Ken Owens in front of an audience and on camera for the WRU and ‘Into Film’.
Well done boys!
