Prizes, Prizes.

This week we received the official nomination certificates for the BAFTA for Digital Creativity.

This was for the War of Words VR app that was made by the team at BDH from the some of the animations we made for the War Of Words: Soldier Poets of the Somme documentary I have talked about extensively here.

As far as I know the App is still available on iTunes and the Play store.

This also reminds me that we picked up two West of England RTS awards recently (during my “blog break”). One for Best Graphics for War of Words and the other for Best Short Animation for The Somme In Seven Poems.  It was quite an evening as I wasn’t really sure we’d win anything, let alone two, and beating such greats as Arthur Cox and Aardman Animations.

So I had to do two speeches, which was interesting for everyone I think. Hopefully I kept it short and mumbly, because I actually remember nothing about being on stage except a sea of expectant faces and the overwhelming urge to run.

Here’s some pictures of us collecting and yes that’s me at the mic:

 

Quite an evening. Felt very lucky and blessed that what we worked so hard on was recognised in such a way.

We totally won 2 @RTS_Bristol awards for #WarOfWords and #SevenPoems. Amazing times. Very humbled. (at Bristol Old Vic) https://instagram.com/p/z_BZNfHy3V/

That’s the end of the trumpets.

In other news I have fired up the old Facebook page to stream sketches and the like, because, even though I am a grown up I still have a problem zapping art in front of people who have friended me there, so it’s a separate place for that. Please follow along if you like Facebook.

I’m also trying to restart the daily sketching project, now the dust has settled, but it’s less “daily” more “regular”, I’m still keeping the 365 count as I would like to have some closure on that. They go on Instagram then get sent everywhere else. So probably best not follow me in more than one place because you’ll get repeats and no-one deserves that.

Until next time.
