Well, as much as I hate when results don't go as I anticipated (more a personal issue I have of not being able to predict), congratulations to Michael Fink, Bill Westenhofer, Ben Morris, and Trevor Wood for their fantastic work!

I was wondering what all the hooting and hollering was downstairs, I just caught the tail end of the speech in the screening room.



Back to work.

Totally Psyched

Ok, I am totally psyched right now.
My first gig out of school was to be hired on at Rhythm & Hues to work on "The Golden Compass" and now for it to win, is something that totally makes me feel like I have made it where I wanted to get to when I decieded to do this for a living.
I will be honest, I realisticly thought that one of the other two would take the win, but far be it for me to argue.

I would add Rainmaker London - now CIS London - they were involved in diverse part of the movie, actually can't remember.

finally, as I remember Peerless Camera Company ( London ) did something on the movie.



its a magic day, I will remeber it!




yep



ciao
