Along with Brian Coffey, writer director Colin Kennedy has been nominated in the "Music Video" category for his work on the We Are The Physics "You Can Do Athletics-BTW" video!!! Recorded at Film City Glasgow last year (almost a year ago to this date 0_0), be sure to check out these entries on Colin's blog for more on the making of the video, which you can see below.

One last related award front news blurb: A movie blogger and part time b-movie producer (ie bad horror and lots of boobs tacky type of film) has issued a press release on his personal "Polished Apple" awards, and gave his best movie award to Mister Foe, noting lead actor Jamie Bell as a "wonderfully underrated actor" (where have we heard that before alas) and goes on to note that Mister Hallam Foe: “It’s not a creepy peeping tom film,” PollyStaffle.com senior editor Chad Freeman said. “It could have been, but it isn’t. Instead it’s a touching character study about love lost.” (Thanks for the reminder to post this Marit! Cheers!)
