    Default What's your recent claim to fame?

    As I had a couple this week I thought it might be fun to a) blow my own trumpet a bit and b) see what's happening to eveyone else here...

    At the Broadcast Expo I was the very first person all week to get a freebie from the Adobe stand!

    And one of the chief gurus at the Matrox stand recognised me and called me over by name as I walked by.

    My mate is an animator who worked on chicken run here in bristol - there was a premier here and Will, the animator, invited me.

    The exec producer was that Stephen Spielberg bloke.

    I was in a bad mood - so there i was ranting on about how ET was really annoying and then i said ' spielberg is a bit of a twat '. I have a loud voice - well I am just loud - guess who was behind me....

    Will dragged me off - then we went home...

    I was at Broadcast Expo, and I know Alan Mills, and he didn't even come to one of my seminars!

    Git!

    I haven't yet decided if that was a good thing or a bad thing.

    Mr Guru, sir. I did my VERY best to find you. I still didn't go to your seminar though.

    I know a Bafta nominated BBC Producer, my dads mates with Nick Park (creator of wallace and gromit) and my brother works with Biffy Clyro.

    CEO's rarely speak to anyone. Except via e-mail to tell you you're fired.
