Subject: More on Sign Language
Security: Public
So on Tuesday I got a call around lunchtime from the producer of Sign Language saying that there's a ticket to the Virgin Media Shorts awards ceremony. I wangle the time off work and arrange to borrow a suit and before you know it we're walking up the red carpet at the BFI Southbank. Tiny bottles of champagne with straws as we shuffle into BFI 1 and make friends with the other film makers. Complaining to the team behind Audiobook about the use of comic sans in the programme. The screenings, and cheering for people who we genuinely wanted to win. Being very surprised to see Two Episodes Of Mash on the big screen. And then the awards. All the shortlisted films get a 35mm print of their film which will be screened before films in cinemas around the country, a People's Prize of £2000 worth of kit and the grand prize of £30,000 in funding.

To cut a long story short we won.

Oscar's rambly but lovely speech. Embarassing myself gushing to Joe Wilkinson. Getting very, very, very drunk. La Roux's poor DJing. Being stopped by the security guard outside the NT while throwing a metal bauble at Olivier. Making it home without vomiting and collapsing on my bed, failing to set an alarm and being late for work the next morning.

All in all, wonderful and unexpected. Thank-you to everyone on the film and here's to the next one.

Well that's just not called for, you could have said "WELL DONE". Tsk.
