I claim my prize, my lord

GNP sent this to my home address a few weeks ago. But I only got it yesterday, due to the fact that I’ve been off shagging and suchlike. Click on this entry to see some gorgeous chunks of loveliness…RED DWARF FAN FILM COMPETITION 2005 This is to certify that the film The Movie: Yeah, No, Yeah, No by Ian Symes is a Winner of the Red Dwarf Fan Film Competition 2005. Doug Naylor

And the Winner for Best Documentary is The Movie: Yeah, No, Yeah, No by Ian Symes

Once again, I need to point out that this isn’t a film by me. It’s a film by Jonathan Capps, John Hoare, Tanya Jones, Kirk Northrop, Seb Patrick, Austin Ross and me; it’s just that I filled in the form. I am the best out of them lot, though.

Interesting that it’s been classified as a documentary. Must have been more realistic than we thought…

  1. That’s just made me excited all over again.

    Excited in a willy-worrying way, sadly.

  2. Frame em quick!

  3. Fuck. It better be good or else I’ll be taking my VII DVD back…

  4. I’ve got my runners-up certificate. Much the same, but…different.

  5. Ellard’s secretary must have spent minutes knocking those up in MS Word.

    It’s just a shame that only one name could go on it, I mean it’s not like they had to print off loads of them or anything. Whose idea was that?

  6. > Ellard’s secretary

    Oh, I’d love that. I’m going to ask for one. Auditions…sorry, INTERVIEWS begin next week.

    > must have spent minutes knocking those up in MS Word.

    Well the envelope and card are props, not certioficates. They were used in Doug’s intro – not meant to be seen close-up or anything (hence the text not relating entriely to the comp – there was no real ‘documentary’ category.) We thought that, as a Dwarf-ish prop, it would make for a nice extra gift to the winners.

    > It’s just a shame that only one name could go on it,

    Not my area, but the rules of the competition were that one person had to be responsible (legally, I guess, rather than creatively) for each film. Ian directed, and it is (supposedly) a director’s medium.

    To be honest, most other films WERE the product of one person, with friends just acting or whatever. The co-written script was something of a rarity.

  7. Doug Naylor’s going to say your name, and not the rest of ours, on DVD, isn’t he?

    We should have had a Race Around The World to decide who got to put their name on the form…

  8. Ian did the most work anyway. Him and Flib deserve the biggest medal. I think you probably did the next amount, Seb.

    I think I did pretty much the least. Still, hooray for my “acting” “skills”.

  9. You could have called this post “I claim my prize, my El-lord” That would have been funnier.

  10. Go on, Andrew, can’t we at least all have copies of the certificate? ;-)

  11. I’m sure Ian can stick it in a photocopier. Hopefully it’s still in a pristine state. Mind you, it *is* laminated.

    …I can’t quite believe I’ve just done that joke.

  12. > Doug Naylor’s going to say your name, and not the rest of ours, on DVD, isn’t he?

    It hadn’t even occured to me that Doug might say my name. hrghp,kgsymhgph,ktgh;
