Academy Sci-Tech Awards acceptance speech posted!

Wow, that was quick! The official Oscars YouTube channel posted our acceptance speech from the Academy Scientific & Technical Awards Ceremony the morning after we gave it! The ceremony was absolutely incredible -- it was held at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills, CA on Saturday, February 10, 2018. This is a lifelong dream come true for all of us, and the ILM BlockParty team is incredibly grateful for this honour. Please also see my previous blog post for the "long version" of my thank-you list :)

Check out our acceptance speech here (along with Sir Patrick Stewart's opening and introduction!), along with some recently posted articles from the Canadian news media and a CBC Radio interview I gave last month about the award.
