Congrats to Andrew Hanson, whom you might remember from his appearances on The Second Column podcast. Hanson and his writing partner Patrick Day won “Best Teleplay: One-Hour Pilot” at the Austin Film Festival. I’m not surprised. I’ve been watching Hanson write on his feet as a member of the improv group The Great Adventure for years. It was only a matter of time before he wrote down some of the funny things that run through his mind and had some success from it.
I stole this photo from Andrew’s Facebook page. That’s the award, which appears to be some type of miniaturized replica of an ancient writing device coupled with a replica of some type of ancient image-capturing form of cellulose. I have no idea who the hipster lady in the background is.
