We are helping develop their concept idea for 'Rolling Scotch' (a roll of tape with a cowboy hat inspired by the Rawhide tune) into a working prototype game.
For those unfamiliar with what BAFTA is, The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) supports, promotes and develops the art forms of the moving image; film, television and video games, identifying and rewarding excellence, inspiring practitioners and benefiting the public.
This is quite an honour to be connected with BAFTA and here is the team here visiting the YoYo offices to 'brainstorm' and work on thier game this week.
In addition we are equally delighted to be invited onto the Jury for the New Talent Awards 2012 for Games.
New Talent exists to recognise, inspire and celebrate emerging talent, and gives up and coming practitioners in the field of film, tv and gaming that all important platform to showcase their work to established professionals. These awards are an essential part of the industry in Scotland, with the ceremony and after show party now an established calendar highlight. The awards are to be held on THURSDAY 22 MARCH 2012.
