Report from Thursday's Teen Tech Week Video Awards Ceremony and Screening

30/04/2013

On Thursday, it was the Teen Tech Week Video Award Ceremony and Screening and my friend and I attended.  It was like a real red carpet event. It even had a photographer to take pictures of you in front of the OPL sign!!

   Once you got into the room you could tell that everyone was excited to find out the winners! Some of my favourite videos were Curious George Rides a Bike, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and 13 Reasons Why.  I thought that those ones were really well done and you could tell that they put a lot of effort into creating them. In the end the big winner was Curious George Rides a Bike! I think it had the best editing and originality AND they had someone dress up in a monkey suit which is always fabulous.

 

  They also had a super cool band called The Riot Police play; they were really good and you should check out their CD (and like them on Facebook and follow them on twitter). At the intermission there were lots of fun non-alcoholic cocktails, my friend and I tried the cranberry and something cocktail, which turned out to be really tart.
 

   Overall it was an amazing night and I am so glad I went!  My friend and I are thinking of entering next year, and you should too!
 

   As always my friends,
   Happy Reading!
