Gallery Incomplet Wins a Rubber Arrow

Last night was the Flash Film Festival at FlashForward 2006 Seattle. Gallery Incomplet [Note: Moved to] was a finalist in the experimental category along with three other great sites. I was really thrilled to win another rubber arrow (number three) for a site which has been so much fun to build – it helps validate the general thrust of my session: that experimental work is one of the best ways to learn Flash and gain community exposure.

I’d like to thank my awesome team back in the office for helping to free up enough of my time so that I could do these experiments. I’d also like to thank my wonderful wife for being very tolerant with me ignoring her, staying up late, and for pretending to be interested when I’d show her half completed experiments.

The conference has been really great so far – very well organized, and some awesome sessions. I think my session went well, except some technical difficulties with my webcam. There seems to be a lot of people here (I’d guess it is the most in a few years). I’ve definitely done a bit too much partying though… I’m ridiculously tired today… but it’s been fun. 🙂

Make sure you check out the other finalists, particularly the people’s choice award winner, Dofus. Anyway, my battery is running down, so I’m out.
