So the big news of 2014 so far is that my short film, Mr. Invisible, was longlisted for a Bafta. I couldn’t announce it publicly until the nominations were revealed last week. But now we can let the world know that we almost, almost got nominated!
Shame. I had actually already planned my hilarious acceptance speech. But guess that’s going to have to wait for another year. Jokes are now firmly back in the tux pocket. Huge relief from Bafta at dodging that particular bullet, I’m sure.
It’s a strange thing announcing you didn’t get nominated. I’m not sure quite how ‘long’ a longlist is exactly. But I guess it’s great that we were in the running. Hopefully lots more people get to see the film at festivals throughout this year and we can charm the pants off the Academy in time for an Oscar nod next year!
