They say that if you haven’t got anything nice to say don’t say anything, but they didn’t say anything against animating it…
February’s theme was an all out assault on stupidity, ranging from lighthearted fun to scathing appraisals of the human race. The bar and screening room were alive with smug satisfaction as the audience watched loop after loop of characters stupider than themselves.
The night was hosted powerfully by Simone, and once the loops had screened the finalists were announced. The loop with the most votes on the blog was by Txesco Montalt from Alla Kinda Studio in Barcelona, and the highest rated loop was by local raconteur Felix Colgrave. The audience vote declared Felix the winner by a narrow margin, and he was presented with a copy of The Internet For Dummies and a dunce cap for his troubles.
As a new edition we’ve introduced a second featured loop to the sidebar based on our internal voting, and after long discussions (ahem… arguments) we have reached a consensus that Alex Grigg’s is our favourite IDIOTS loop.
Anyway, now it’s time to put all this idiocy behind us and get stuck into March’s theme of LIQUID which will be running in honour of the relaunch of MTV’s Liquid Television program. They will be promoting their favourite loops and have also provided us with a prize pack for both the winning and runner-up loops.
Simone was well prepared for the role of host.
As part of his prize Felix was made to wear The Hat of Shame®.
