So, I’ve not had a chance to make a video about this yet, so I thought I’d write a quick post about it.
Last night I attended the Virgin Media Shorts awards ceremony. Months ago I entered my film “PJ, TINY PLANET EXPLORER” into a competition, one of the biggest film competitions in the country, and after a lot of waiting, and support and votes from you guys, I walked away with the highly prestigious Peoples Choice Award. Not only that but I got to meet the highly respected judging panel, I met a bunch of really awesome, talented filmmakers and had a fantastic night.
I have to say, thank you. To everyone single person who tweeted the video, voted via facebook or even just watched my film, your constant support is making me a better filmmaker, and a better person. I feel I can finally call myself a filmmaker, I made a film which is now getting shown in cinemas. It feels incredible. So tremendously incredible. Scary? Of course. Sometimes I feel way out of my league, but the more I push myself, the more exciting life becomes.
So what’s next? I think I have to make a £5,000 film. Yep. You’ll certainly be the first to see it.
I love telling stories so much, so thank you all for being there to hear them.
