And it's looking promising for getting on TV later in the year. Takeover TV which is shown on E4 (part of Channel 4) wants to show an edited version of The Polos of Death. Which is nice.

The video has been around at least 11 different countries (bet you can't name more than 11 countries anyway), so it's now a global phenomenonenon. Which is nice.

We should of course thank the competition, who did fantastic jobs on their films too. Second Chance, by Jeff Foster, and Hold for Three rightly deserved to win their awards. It's a shame that Memory Cafe didn't walk away with anything, but then they've won loads of other stuff, so no need to feel sorry for them really.
Thanks to everyone who supported us, and put up with Ivan and myself being so secretive and for vanishing at every given opportunity to work on the animation.
(Oh dear. This seems to have become a thanking speech. I promised myself I'd never become a thanker).
