Glasgow's 'wee hings' video nominated for Scottish BAFTA

Glasgow's 'wee hings' video nominated for Scottish BAFTA

A video showcasing Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony is up for a Scottish BAFTA New Talent Award.

Short film The Wee 'hings, directed by Iain Henderson, was unveiled at the opening ceremony last year, and is now up for the prestigious award.

Iain, a 20 year old graduate from Glasgow Clyde College saw his masterpiece alongside 40,000 other spectators at the Glasgow 2014 Opening Ceremony during "an amazing experience", and now has a one in three chance of winning the award.

Produced with Stuart Jackson, MOG, Shaun Dempsey, Glasgow Clyde College and Creative Loop, the video is up against several other competitors within the 'Entertainment' category of this year's Scottish BAFTA New Talent Awards, including The Cyclist and Middle Man.

The Wee 'hings

Iain Hendo

Iain entered the video to the New Talent Awards during his time at college, but admitted he did not expect much to come of it.

"I found out around three weeks ago. My friend said I should check the website for the nominations and there it was," he said.

"I really am chuffed and surprised, I really didn't expect it at all.

"I knew I had entered it but I didn't expect much, it really is a nice surprise to see it being recognised."

He added that the nature of the video, showing the real side of Glasgow's people, has helped with its success.

He said: "It's the Commonwealth Games, it really was a great thing - and this video is probably the realist thing of the whole ceremony.

"It captures the people of Glasgow, the real people rather than the dancing shortbread!

"I've got a one in three chance, so it is worth a shout, but it's up against other productions of similar quality, but just to have been nominated is enough recognition."

The Cyclist

Dream to Screen

Jude MacLaverty, director of BAFTA Scotland, said: "BAFTA Scotland continues to be dedicated to nurturing emerging talent in Scotland and we were overwhelmed by the incredible quality of entrants to this year’s British Academy Scotland New Talent Awards.

"These nominations show that there is no shortage of talent in Scotland today and we look forward to unveiling the winners in April."

Now a freelance filmmaker, Iain is currently working alongside Wideo Media - an organisation which helps people from disadvantaged backgrounds get into the arts and media.

Iain also pointed out that his success would not have come about if it were not for Creative Loop - the organisation who put on the competition for the Opening Ceremony back in July.

Middle Man

The Skinny

Helliate Rushwaya, project manager at Creative Loop highlighted his success.

She said: "Creative Loop is most delighted and is rooting for Iain on his Bafta New Talent Award Nomination.

"It's been quite an exciting journey for us working alongside Iain from the pitching, commissioning and production of 'Wee 'hings' and the Bafta New Talent nomination is hopefully the beginning of even more future success for Iain."
