And there you have it. We pushed hard, then just as we were about to pull out we… hey! Keep the innuendo out of here! This is a celebration, not a gag a minute blitz!
I am very happy that the video I and my friends made ended up as the chosen winner. A lot of effort went into the production, and the main thing was to believe in the project all the way through. A slight sense of doubt and things wouldn’t work out, it is a tough old world getting something out there. The support was amazing and I thank everyone for pushing the video forwards. And it was some really hard pushing.
The screening was the most intense moment. I nearly lost it when introducing the video, but managed to pull it back with talks of fez’s and The Shining. I could definitely feel the exhaustion from the competition reaching its end tugging me off. And I feel such a huge sense of relief and sleepiness that I only know how to write dirty jokes at every turn. One thing I liked was the collection of orange juice, water bottles and chocolate I threw into my bag. If I had a bigger bag I would have taken it all. Maybe I’ll buy one with the prize money.
The day finished outside with photos and I got to know the people on the Typhoo Team a little better. Again, the positive response warmed my heart and I’m glad to have been a part of it all.
And so ends the Typhoo competition.
But maybe not quite the end of these updates.
