I’m pleased to announce that Episode 1 of Steve’s Quest: The Musical just won an “Award of Excellence” from the Best Shorts competition. The competition has included some pretty amazing work, including a short film (“Mr. Hublot“) that won an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. Obviously this means we will also win an Oscar and it’s just a matter of time.
Also, Episode 1 has just been selected by two film festivals, the Blue Plum Animation Festival in Johnson City, Tennessee and the Studio City Film Festival in Los Angeles. I live in California, so I’ll definitely be going to Studio City, and I’ll visit the Blue Plum festival as well if it means I’ll finally get the opportunity to meet my animators (who live in Georgia) in person.
It’s hard to believe that, about a year ago, I was doubting whether we would ever find a way to finish Episode 1, and I was already making preparations to follow my Plan B, which was to do a show about magical puppets who live in a sewer (but I will eventually make that one too — you mark my words)!
Looking forward to sharing Episode 2 with you, which will be live soon!
