Thanks to KickThePj and his team for creating an original and surreal show, and casting me in it. Thanks to everyone at New Form Digital for being so passionate and dedicated to online creators. Thanks to the Streamys for rewarding creators who take risks. Thanks to Her Royal Majesty the Queen for being my acting tutor for four years, and of course thanks to the fans as without those guys the show would not have been made.”
