Cinemagic London To Feature BAFTA Children’s: Behind The Scenes!

Posted on 21st June 2014 | Cinemagic News

CBBC presenters Katie Thistleton and Ben Shires (Officially Amazing!) will host a showcase of the films, television, games and websites nominated at last year’s BAFTA Children’s Awards.  

Taking place in Barbican Centre, London, on 1st July, from 11.00am-12.30pm, young people will enjoy a fun mix of on stage demonstrations, behind the scenes films and interviews will highlight the talent behind the nominations from presenters to puppeteers, animators to actors.  Aimed at a KS2 audience (7-11 year olds) there will be plenty of opportunity for audience interaction with challenges and Question and Answer sessions.

Ben and Katie will be answering questions about what it’s like being a television presenter and they will be chatting to some of the talented people behind top children’s programmes including Tim Jones, the lead puppeteer from Strange Hill High.  Other guests still to be confirmed but with nominations including Moshi Monsters, ParaNorman and Sam & Mark’s Big Friday Wind-up, you’re bound to find lots to enjoy at this special event.
