Webby Awards

Hooray, I just found out the the GYWO animations I made with 23/6 (RI/P) were nominated for a Webby Award! The category: BEST ANIMATION. Very nice.

In case you don’t know, the Webby Awards are like the Emmy Awards, but for the internet. (And also I think you have to pay $ to be nominated? But don’t worry, MNFTIU laptop fund donors, none of your money went towards the Webby nomination fee; maybe 23/6 paid the fee before it imploded or maybe Arianna Huffington sold some of her jewelry to pay the fee.)

Anyway, it’s an honor just to be nominated so here’s my speech:

“Thanks to 23/6 and everyone who helped make the GYWO videos. What a great project! Umm … I’d like to especially thank Holly Schlesinger and Brian Spinks for all their help, and Allen for his recording help and of course Sam and Richard for all their film and editing help, and how could I forget the actors: Jon Glaser and Anthony Laurent, you guys were such a pleasure to work with and so patient when I made you record the same script like eleven times in a row because I didn’t really know what I was doing and I was nervous the whole time, and also Bob and everyone down at Flat Black Films for the rotoscoping, that was so bad-ass. (SCREAMING) NOW LET’S ALL RISE UP AND STOP PAYING TAXES TO THE FASCISTS AND SOCIALISTS WHO ARE RUNNING OUR COUNTRY INTO THE DITCH!!! GLENN BECK, I NEED YOU TO CALL ME ABOUT TH–“

Well, like I said, it’s an honor just to be nominated.
