BAFTA Guru Launches: Giving Gaming Its Creative Due

Video games continue their steady march towards accepted legitimacy as a viable, progressive entertainment platform.

Today, a very important site has launched: it's BAFTA Guru, "inspiring minds in Film, TV and Games." It targets the 18-30 audience and is specifically designed to assist those who wish to pursue a career in the creative arts. The site will boast "some of the best minds in film, television and video games."

Consisting of interviews, lectures, masterclasses and debates on a variety of topics, the Academy utilizes an "incredible lineup of talent." As an example, here's a clip of game legend Will Wright addressing the concept of game addiction:

Said Tim Hunter, Head of Learning and Events:

"BAFTA Guru is an exciting new development for the Academy. It takes our Learning & Events programme to a wider audience and will allow the amazing roster of industry experts who we meet through our membership and Awards to support the next generation of practitioners. For the first time ever, we are live streaming our David Lean Lecture with Errol Morris, to an international audience."

Next year, users will even be able to upload their own creative content for discussion. BAFTA Guru appears to be an excellent tool and one industry veterans, experts and enthusiasts can point to and say, "this isn't just about a little Italian plumber and a six-year-old's toy, anymore."
