Mind My Brains, Darling! Poster by Jeremy Hodges
Last week we posted about our decision to submit ‘Mind My Brains, Darling!’ to the IAWTV Awards. That post generated a lot of discussion both on this blog and way beyond. After deciding to actually go for it, we then had to choose which categories to submit in and which episodes to use. We would have LOVED to include Megan Lynch’s album ‘Songs The Brothers Warner Taught Me‘ in the ‘Best Original Music’ category, but because the album was not written for the show we couldn’t do that.

Here’s what we ended up with:

Best Comedy Series:
Episodic British romantic zombie comedy period piece set in the 1970’s. Filmed in a brand new experimental style called BodyLine where no faces are shown. Funded by crowd sourcing. With it’s own soundtrack. Packed full of nods to geek culture and more.


Best Writing (Comedy): Paul Higgins, Mary Higgins

Ep 2: How’s Your Father. The whole series is a tribute to the heritage and style of traditional British farce. In this episode we have vicars, housewives, retired colonels, tea, cucumber sandwiches and slapstick comedy. All innocently delivered in 6 minutes.

Best Directing (Comedy): Paul Higgins, Mary Higgins

Season finale: Gone With The Wind. The final two thirds of the episode is essentially a silent movie. The action and characters’ interaction takes place with no dialogue at all. Nods to Star Wars, Dr Who, Buffy, Le Petomane.

Best Design (Art Direction/Production): Paul Higgins, Mary Higgins 

Episode 4: Ai! Ai! Ai! Robot! Completely recreates the 1970’s era of British comedy and sci fi. Specially built set mimicking a 1970’s British bedroom, entire living and dining room and police station. Plus – a working robot!

Best Supplemental Content:  http://mindmybrains.com

Accompanying website expands the universe in which ‘Mind My Brains, Darling!’ is set. Contains biographies of characters plus interviews with cast, crew and creators. Competition winners are actually featured in every episode. Behind the scenes posts about all aspects of production and beyond including the successful fundraising on IndieGoGo for Season 1.

So -what do you think? Did we include your favourite episodes?

Don’t forget the submissions end at 11:59 PST tonight – and good luck to every one who enters!
