Into Film, an education charity and the Welsh Rugby Union have joined forces to boost young people’s literacy and creativity in a new initiative inspired by Scorch the Dragon, the WRU’s fire-breathing, rugby-loving mascot. With the support of actor Julian Lewis Jones (Invictus), Welsh international rugby union player Ken Owens and acclaimed cartoonist Huw Aaron, Into Film has launched a competition inviting 5-19 year-olds across Wales to create a superb storyboard or fabulous short film (up to two minutes) that shows ‘What Scorch did next’. The launch, including an animation workshop, and a Q&A session with Julian Lewis Jones and Ken Owens attended by around 100 pupils, took place at Fitzalan High School in Cardiff.
