The Adventures of John and John wins a Prize

Posted by Will at 11:33, September 15th, 2006

Hello everyone. I forgot to put a post up after edinburgh. Edinburgh was very exciting, and I won an award.

It is 3rd prize in the McLaren Award for British Animation, which is tremendously exciting, except that it has no cash prize attached and I didn’t get a statuette. Is that any way to treat Britians 3rd Best Animator? That’s right, it isn’t any way to treat Britian’s 3rd Best Animator, (the title by which I wish to be referred from now on.)

Britian’s 3rd Best Animator.
