Just when we thought the end of the year couldn't get any better - it was announced that BABY has got into Sundance!


Moët & Chandon - Lost vs BIFA won


Last night we celebrated as we won best short at the BIFAs & Daniel and I collected our award and a giant bottle of champagne (c/o of our sponsors) with BABY carefully and beautifully scripted in sparkly gems. What a thrill! We were surrounded by some of the UKs finest independent cinema talents. Helena Bonham Carter and Colin Firth were sat at the table beside us with their successful King's Speech contingent. But within this prestigious gathering, lurked a shameless individual or group of individuals who thought once the free bar closed down at 01:30am (after BIFA's & Moët's hugely generous 7 hours of free booze on tap) that they should help themselves to our BABY trophy and made away with the bottle in a flurry! I'm hoping the wonderful team at BIFA will find the empty bottle amongst the detritus and forward it on to me... Otherwise all I have left is this picture taken by the fabulous Helen Grace.


Baby's progress


It's great seeing Baby finally take off, after what seemed like a long period of adjustments and not being able to send the DVDs out to festivals. Cork festival paved the way and now we have just won another award at the Sleepwalker's Student and short film festival in Tallin, Estonia, a jury's special mention. That amazing Canadian film Danse Macabre won. I am keeping fingers crossed for Sunday's BIFA ceremony, but quite frankly we're just really happy to have even been nominated and we're really looking forward to the event at Old Billingsgate, it feels like our first Christmas party of the year! They are sponsored by Moët et Chandon - so one thing's for certain; we'll be drinking champagne whether we win or lose!
