BAFTAs 2014 - The Winners

Sadly BAFTA is over for another year; and what a show it was. Every year this commemoration of film serves to reignite my passion and appreciation for this great art form and reminds me of the importance of stories, imagination, creation. We need individuals to be inspired to pursue their fantastical visions, to become the actors, directors and writers of tomorrow. Actors who reflect and project others as believably as if it were actually them. Directors who envisage a concept and pin it down for the world to view. Writers who speak to us with words that generate compassion, that educate and entertain. I love every aspect of this industry, from the initial thought, all the way through to celebrations like last night. Here's hoping to another incredible year of film...

The Fellowship award went to Dame Helen Mirren who ended the evening on a fitting verse from Shakespeare's The Tempest:

Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd tow'rs, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.
