Stretching the BAFTA brand
into video games

Having decided to stretch the brand into video games BAFTA brought in LAB to work with the video games committee to define exactly what its’ contribution to the video games industry should entail.

Working with some of the key industry players we helped BAFTA define their purpose, role and contribution, and to formulate their approach, distinct from film and television.

Vision, purpose and goals

LAB worked with the BAFTA video games committee to define its vision, purpose and goals as well as its contribution to the industry, the role it will play and how it will support, promote and influence the industry .

“Really integrating games into the fabric of the academy is a major challenge and LAB helped BAFTA’s games committee to clarify its vision and purpose and to set some ambitious strategic goals."

Anne-Marie Flynn, Head of Awards
British Academy of Film & Television (BAFTA)

The impact of BAFTA in supporting the video games industry is clearly apparent with profile in the video games industry. Many of the goals and initiatives set by the initial committee in progress with many already achieved.  Good one BAFTA!
