    Creativity Media congratulates all 2018 BAFTA winners.

    The 71st British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) was characterised by its wide ranging political messages of support and solidarity towards the victims of sexual harassment and bullying.

    All BAFTA attendees displayed their support for “Time’s Up” and “Me Too” campaigns by dressing in dark colours and by wearing Time’s Up badges — all as a means of fostering further respect and equality in the film business after Hollywood’s sexual harassment scandals.

    The night’s biggest winner was Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which took five prizes including “Best Film”, “Leading Actress” Frances McDormand, “Original Screenplay” for writer-director Martin McDonagh, “Supporting Actor” Sam Rockwell and “Outstanding British Film”.

    CM would like to especially congratulate BAFTA winner for “Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer” I Am Not a Witch, for whom Creativity Media did their post-production and worked closely with.

    The story takes place in a Zambian village, where 9 year old Shula is accused of witchcraft and is thus faced with two choices: to either accept her supernatural reputation and stay in the local village, or to be transformed into a goat that may be killed and eaten.

    Producer Emily Morgan’s and Writer-Director Rungano Nyoni’s pioneering feature film has been praised by critics and audiences worldwide; and the story has been referred to as a bold satirical parable that encompasses both magic and misogyny in its central themes.

    It is the second consecutive year that CM has done post production and worked very closely with inspiring BAFTA winners for “Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer”, including 2017 BAFTA winner Under The Shadow.

    We hope to score a hat-trick next year for another win, as we continue to work on and to be inspired by these outstanding films, and the immense talents working behind them.

    2018 BAFTA Nominees

    The team at CM would like to congratulate all the 2018 nominees of The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) ceremony, which will be held on February 18 at Royal Albert Hall.

    The Awards ceremony will be presided by Absolutely Fabulous actress and BAFTA award-winner Joanna Lumley, who will replace Stephen Fry after having presented 12 BAFTA ceremonies. Lumley will be the first female to preside The BAFTA Awards after 17 years.

    CM would like to especially congratulate BAFTA nominee for “outstanding debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer” I am not a Witch, for whom Creativity Media did their post-production and worked closely with.

    Zambian-born Welsh Writer/Director Rungano Nyoni’s groundbreaking first feature film has been incredibly praised by both audiences and critics.

    The story unfolds in a far-off Zambian village, where a nine-year-old girl (Margaret Mulubwa) is faced with two choices after being accused of being a witch: to either accept her supernatural reputation and stay in the local village, or to be transformed into a goat that may be killed and eaten.

    Critics have referred to the film as a daring satirical parable of both magic and misogyny. A story that has stunned audiences and jurors, for its urgency on pressing social issues and the female’s role in society.

    Rungano Nyoni started her bright and pioneering film career with award-winning shorts such as Mwansa the Great and Listen. Her bold independent vision holds great promise for the British and international film industry.

    CM would also like to give a special mention to BAFTA nominee for “Outstanding British Film” God’s Own Country, .

    The sequel, 48 Meters Down changes location from Mexico to Brazil where a group of cave diving girls venture into some hidden underwater ruins not knowing one of the most deadliest shark species resides in the area.

    47 Meters Down’s Postproduction was provided in a cooler climate of Creativity Media facilities in London where our online editors worked their magic in our state-of-the-art baselight grading theatres.
