Last night I got back from the National Student Television Association's 2013 conference in Exeter. My apocalyptic rom-com The End of the World was nominated for the Best Writing and Best Drama awards. It didn't quite entirely win, or indeed get Highly Commended, in either category, but it was shortlisted twice, i.e. was in the top five from fourteen entrants, which is pretty good, right?
My station YSTV didn't completely quite manage at all to hold onto our Best Broadcaster trophy from last year, but we did win the Best Technical Award and one of our number was elected NaSTA Chair, so it could have gone worse.
I also made some great contacts, met some amazing people, and drank reasonable quantities of wine. Yes, only 'reasonable'; who needs after-parties when you can chat to the writer of Dalek until 3AM?
Speaking of which, to top it all off, I've just caught up on Doctor Who and this week's episode isn't as crap as everyone told me it was. Longer review coming soon.
Well done everyone involved in the NaSTA conference - a fantastic, productive, exciting, and ultimately knackering weekend.
I'm the sassy one.
