Bafta Win



The Amazing Adrenalini Brothers scooped up the prize for Best Animation at last night’s Children’s Bafta awards. I was lucky enough to write an episode earlier this year and the show deserves the award because it’s great fun to write, and even more enjoyable to watch. No wonder it’s a hit with kids, students and parents everywhere.

If you haven’t done so already, you should check out what all the fuss is about at their website. As usual, huge congratulations and double-somersaults into a pool of fire to the team at Pesky, creators Dan Chambers, Mark Huckerby and Nick Ostler, all the writers, script editor Andrew Brenner, CiTV and Studio B in Canada. A ‘yahzaa!’ to you all.

James Moran said...

Wahey! And well done to you of course, because you were involved too, so there.

Wow that's brilliant! Good for you! I hope it gets you loads more work.

Danny Stack said...

Thanks, guys. Obviously, will blog about any positive knock-on effects for me... and Berns, I think RTE have nabbed the Adrenanilins for broadcast, so stay tuned.

Great news, Danny. Congratulations.

Nick Ostler said...

Thanks Danny. It was a great night and very nice surprise (yeah I know they all say that, but it was!). Lots of controversial speeches about future of ITV and kids TV which was good to hear, but I'll confess that our table's conversation was mainly along the lines of "Woo hoo!", "Pass the free booze!" and "Ooh, isn't it heavy!"

Nice one. As a Mum subjected to MUCH kids' TV I actually like this one. Which is rare for me to admit. So double well done.

Excellent news. Shouldn't your profile now read;

"Award-winning scriptwriter and script reader, carving out a career in the UK TV/film industry, and beyond..."

How cool?

Congrats to all.

Well done to all, especially in a not-too-friendly climate to kids tv at the moment. Nice to see the good stuff being rewarded.
