Sleeping Through Awards

I made a half-awake decision to sleep really late this morning. So of course, sometime after noon my mobile started buzzing with a bunch of incoming text messages that all basically said the same thing:

Apparently, Catalog won a Special Jury Prize at AFI Dallas. The text above was from Clay Liford, who I must thank for getting me into the festival in the first place (he gave James and Sarah, the programmers, a screener in my stead). Thanks, Clay! This one's for you!

I had a decent enough reason for wanting to sleep late, which I'll get into in a subsequent post...

that's awesome... i got a message too from james about your award. i don't really know what a jury prize is, but it sounds cool! and catalog totally deserves it, if not more.
