All a bit weird, to be honest. Last night, Size Five Games was honoured with a BAFTA for our sex ed shoot-‘em-up romp Privates.
If you go here and click on Learning- Secondary, you can see video footage of my bewildered, flabbergasted form stumble through an acceptance speech and interview. I don’t remember doing any of that.
I had a list of people to thank in my top pocket, but no one else was unprofessional enough to need cheat sheets so I decided to DO IT LIVE, and as a result completely forgot to thank most of the people on my little list. Excusable, I hope; it’s all a complete blur, I’m amazed I even managed to stand up properly.
So then, huge thanks to Chris Simpson and Andy Hodgetts who did all the clever code and stunning art.
Our actors Ryan Hurst, Dan Wheeler and Fiona Sheehan for their hard work and brillo performances.
Khanh Nt who did all our squelchy sound effects and Nik Sideris who did our amazing music.
Everyone at Channel 4, even the lawyers I guess. In particular Gemma Brady and Jo Twist.
And of course Alice Taylor, who commissioned the damned thing in the first place, despite the fact it’s a game about vaginas.
I also forgot to thank BAFTA. Whoops. Sorry, BAFTA! Thank you so much, BAFTA.
There’s probably more still. Thank you, if you did a thing on Privates.
It was an amazing night. Nigel Planer was there! I stormed up to him and told him how The Young Ones and Filthy, Rich & Catflap had such a massive influence on me, and then I told him where the toilets were. I shook John Craven’s Newsround’s hand! Magical!
Back to work, then.
