A brand new RTS for the East has been launched in Norwich with a great show of support from the region’s creative media industry
More than 80 people gathered at the Forum in late November at the AniMotion exhibition, which celebrates the UK’s most imaginative animation techniques, to find out about RTS East and to contribute ideas.
Reaction was positive. “It is so good to have the RTS East active again, and it felt like there is the will and energy to really achieve something in celebrating, recognising and developing the talent in this region,” said one attendee.
The new centre screened its specially commissioned film showcasing the best of the East’s media industry, along with a film about the RTS and highlights from Norwich University of the Arts’ 2016 degree show.
The centre also launched its RTS East Awards, which will be held in March 2017.
