Peter Smith wins animation award!

You may remember (here) my namesake (one of only 27 million in the world) who contacted me to canvas votes for the  Reed Best Animation film award.

Well, he was in touch again last week to say he won! Congratulations, Peter - what are you going to do next?

"Best Animation, as chosen by the reed.co.uk team, went to Peter Smith and his clever short 'Social Security', a novice filmmaker who discovered the competition whilst looking for a new job on reed.co.uk".

I have to say that based on the short-listed entries I watched, he deserved it. So, when he wins his first Oscar, and if you did support him, you'll be able to say "it all started when I voted for him in 2011..."

Here it is if you didn't see it before. Very good and strangely moving...
