Yes! Finally some recognition! I won "Best Music Video" at the 3rd Annual Santa Monica Teen Film Festival. Whoopi and I should have snagged at least one award last year for Whoopi vs. SilentBat but hey, what are you going to do? The audience choice awards was super biased and the judges just didn't think it deserved anything. Anywho, I competed, at first, with seventy other films which got weeded down to twenty films, nine of them, including mine, being music video. And of the other eight music videos I won first place for Antoine Bandele's And He Gets The Girl. I almost thought I lost it to another video called Remeberance though because last year, I believe, some of the videos won just because they had a sap story and this one was a sad story and was really good on top of that. Everytime a music video came up I would think to myself "I hope this one is bad and if it is good I hope I could be proud to lose to it." I felt that way with Remeberance. I would legitamely say I would have been proud to lose to it if I did ... but good thing I didn't! Yay!
So what did I get? Well as you can see above and below I got a trophy and with it I got four movie tickets to a Landmark Theater (I already know where I'm going to use the tickets for and for whom. I owe someone and I think I'll take her friends too) :). Along with the trophy and tickets I got a Best Buy gift certificate worth $200. So pretty much, that means I'm getting a new external harddrive that's firewire-ready. I was thinking about the one you see to your right. It's the Iomega - Minimax 500 GB. But that's just from a first look, I may by a drive from a name brand I'm more familiar with!
Well anyway that's it! Tomorrow is my CSI Editing visit :-D!
