Huge thanks to DLT Entertainment and 2Act Films for inviting Media Parents members to attend Friday night’s Leicester Square screening of The Academy, starring Sir Ian McKellen and Frances Barber.

DLT Exec Michaela Hennessy-Vass talks to Media Parents Development Producer and Voiceover Artist Emma Hyman whilst Sir Ian McKellen talks to a fellow cast member.

We were delighted to spend the evening in the presence of Sir Ian and many of the cast and crew, including the film’s writer, producer and editor Peter Hinton, a Media Parents Networker.  The film was transmitted in four parts with live entertainment from Sir Ian and other cast members in the intervals – a wonderful surprise that complemented the film brilliantly.  The film has been piloted but is yet to find a broadcaster.
