AN aspiring 25-year-old director is thrilled to have been shortlisted to represent East Anglia in a BAFTA competition.

Kate Morton, from Old Newton, near Stowmarket, is among the final five vying to go forward from the region to the national stage of the competition.

Miss Morton, a graduate who studied media and video production in London, said: “BAFTA set up the competition to allow people to make a 60 second film with the theme being celebration.

“It is open to anyone aged over 16 and you do not need to have any experience, although I do work in the industry as a production manager and assist directing with my London employers, working on corporate videos and events.
