Plot Device Wins a Webby!

Well… it happened. Plot Device won the Webby for best editing.

I’ll keep this short, because we are all, honestly, stunned. Not that we didn’t think that director Seth Worley’s fantastic cutting/storytelling wasn’t worthy of an award, but when you go up against the kind of competition we had, you kind of just say “It’s nice to be nominated” so you can sleep at night.

The team at Red Giant is ridiculously proud of Seth and his crew (a crew I consider myself lucky to have been a part of). But, frankly, even without the award, we were already proud. We know Seth is an amazing storyteller, and he works with some of the best and reliable people you’ll find anywhere. This morning he sent an email to the team, and I thought I’d share a few of his words:

“This project was fortunate to have some of the most talented, hard working, and gracious people I know working on it. Those kinds of projects are special, and don’t come along every time. Thank you for your work.  know you’re going to roll your eyes at this, but I don’t care: congratulations on this cool award. We made a really cool thing together and we’re blessed to get to see the outside world appreciate it and derive joy from it.”

I could not have said it better myself. One thing is for sure – we are not resting on our laurels. We’re near completion on a new film, and in fact, the night of the Webby’s, Seth, Neil and I will actually be away filming something new in Portland.

Thank you all for your support. Stay tuned.

    Nice one! The votes really count. It was especially nice to get to hear Seth speak about the film at the Media Motion Ball this year, and to get a sneak peak at the new project! Keep up the great work.
