Dick Figures has always had a huge following in Germany. It counts for the most views of all non-English speaking countries. To be honest, we have no idea why. But once again the German's blitzkrieg'd us with a surprise: DICK FIGURES THE MOVIE has won the Best Animated Feature Award at the International Film Awards Berlin.
I. What. How. ???. Awesome. As a fellow German (my name "Keller" means "cellar" in German) I say: danke. The people who ran the festival graciously invited Ed Skudder and I to attend in Berlin, but we even more graciously declined. Who looks foolish now? We do (like always). It's a huge honor to be accepted or nominated by any film festival, let alone WINNING, so we want to thank ifab 2014, the cast, crew, fans, Kickstarter backers and everyone involved in making DFTM a reality. This is the first win for Dick Figures though we've been nominated for:
- Annie Award - Best Directing in an Animated Television Production
- Streamy Awards - Best Animated Series
- Webby Awards - Best Writing
- Academy of Web Television Awards - Best Animated Series
But now...we've won, and my family can finally be proud of me working on a show with "dick" in the title.
