Screenocean (a subsidiary of video management company Imagen) will be live-capturing all the red carpet and backstage interviews at this year’s BAFTA Award Ceremony on February 18th.
The new partnership between Screenocean and BAFTA allows instant access to their unique content archive as well as the current year’s live content.
From the first standalone Craft Awards ceremony in 1978, to Richard Attenborough presenting David Puttnam with the Academy Fellowship in 2006 and Emma Stone winning an award for her performance in La La Land, the archive represents some of the golden moments from the Academy’s acclaimed history across film, games and television.
Prestigious award ceremony events, exclusive lectures with industry insiders, revealing interviews, and unique red carpet and behind the scenes footage of BAFTA-winners and nominees, are all stored within this extensive archive.
With over 1,000 clips available to view online dating back to 2003, Screenocean and BAFTA will continue to grow the archive with new footage and clips from the legacy collections. In addition exclusive content from the EE British Academy Film Awards ceremony, to be held on 18 February 2018, will be made available on the night.
Rosie Wilson, Media Manager for BAFTA, said, “It is great to be working with Screenocean on this new venture for BAFTA, enabling us to open up the archive to new audiences for the first time. BAFTA’s unique access to talent allows for insightful and engaging interviews and lectures with those who work both in front of and behind the camera. To be able to make these available to an international client-base is a really exciting prospect. We look forward to a successful partnership.”
Tony Blake, Chairman of Screenocean, said, “This exciting addition to the Screenocean portfolio complements the inimitable range of content we represent. Our customers can self-serve from www.screenocean.com or call our specialist research team for help with sourcing that unique clip. We look forward to working with BAFTA to build the collection over the coming months.”
