Ian MacKenzie: New talent; where next?

TOWARDS the end of next month – March 21 – will see BAFTA in Scotland announce the winners of their New Talent Awards for 2013.

The awards, unparalleled anywhere else in the UK, seek to recognise the best new practitioners in various screen disciplines.

As someone lucky enough to sit on the BAFTA in Scotland committee, I’m always excited by the high quality of the entries. However, I’m often left with a difficult question following the event: How many of these talented individuals will still be in the industry in five years time?
