More Breaking News!!: Mat WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mat won, you guys. He won the Panda for the BBC Newcomer Award. Tonight.

Unbelievable. What a thing to accomplish.

I'm sure once he climbs down from Cloud 9 and from shaking all the new hands who will undoubtedly want to hire him for amazing world-wide cinematography projects, he'll jump in to tell us all about it.

Stay tuned!

And huge, huge congratulations to our favorite designer, player, visual poet, and all around planet-loving friend....

Hey guys !

Well what a crazy week in my life. The festival has now finished, I've had little sleep, met some fab people and yep...won the BBC newcomer award. Awesome!

Thanks to all of you for your kind words and support throughout the last few uwol years. We have a great community!

As far as viewing the film. I will be setting up a website soon and it will be viewable on there. The BBC NHU are also using a number of sequences from the film for a new series. 'An Animals Guide To Britain'. This is set to screen in the UK in April next year.

Many many thanks
Mat
