L$50,000 Machinima Contest for Emma Acs & the Inbred Family
Saturday 14th May- Sunday 12th June 2011
Pop Art Lab, Second Life’s ™ most dynamic and immersive music sim is inviting machinima makers from across the grid to participate in our latest real life project.
We have once again secured an opportunity to work with a much hyped, fresh and original Scandinavian band ‘Emma Acs & The Inbred Family’ to produce a music video filmed within SL for their new song release: ‘We Make Sense.’
We barely finished our recent Giana Factory project and what happens?! I fell in love with new album by Danish upcoming band Emma Acs & the Inbred Family.
I’m pleased to announce we’ll continue pushing the local Danish musicscene and set up new musicvideo/machinima competetion!
Today Emma Acs picked “We Make Sense” as their most likely forthcoming single from their newly released debut album Champagne.
It’s been awhile! We passed a very successful Machinima Expo 2011. I don’t think I ever managed to review event and unfortunately very few pics seems to exist. However we still have full Treet.TV cast in our archives and Dandi was kind to put this up in our Flickr stream.
Here is selected feedback from jury as well as prolific machinina makers and experts. We hope you enjoyed the contest and looks forward to launch next!
Jury members was asked to send their Top 3 and you can see their votes below each video of those they selected. To read more about the jury please see previous post.
I hope I have included most important quotes but might add more as these appears on numereous sites and I haven’t got the time right now to run all through.
Thank you so much to all who participated! We hope this feedback will be useful!
If you missed the full broadcast of event it is now available at Treet TVs archive.
Director: Ian Pahute
Adam Hashemi, jury: No. 2 “For its simplicity. Even though it’s a bit boring, it’s the only one with a shred of esthetic quality (according to my taste)”
Claus Uriza: “I love it, nice graphics and maybe the most “accesseble” video for people who are not familiar with machinima. One of my winners!”
Director: Ormand Lionheart
Rhett Linden, jury: No. 1
Adam Hashemi, jury: No. 1 “Has some good dancing moves”
Toxic Menges, jury: No. 2 “Has created a masterful mix of colour and motion that really works well, it’s definite mastery of machinima is evident and the vibrancy works good with the song”
Giana Factory, artist: No. 1 Loui Foo, singer “… Amazingly abstract! It pictures an absurdity and a parallel universe, we could not even imagine existed. We find the colors and the playfulness and creativity in the universe very attractive. It’s unpredictable and avant garde and still pure eye candy, and has an almost burlesque feel to it. Besides that, we think it goes well with the tune and keeps the story untold, and it’s up to the viewer to create their own.”
Claus Uriza: “I don’t think visuals inside Second Life can be made much better right now. Extremely well edited. One of my winners”
Director: Al Peretz
Hamlet Au, New World Notes: No. 2 “Heavy on the cyberpunk action”
Claus Uriza: “Probably the biggest production and very compelling graphics. Very clever editing as well. Maybe too many ideas thrown in the mix”
IcechickenSr, YouTube: “I have no idea what you guys are are all competing in or what the contest is all about. But after looking at a bunch of these done by others I really keep finding myself attracted to this one. I think it has more of a theme or story line happening in the video which naturaly attracts the human eye to it. It’s really a very cool contest and project I like it, the song is very cool too. Good work! Cheers, IC”
Director: Lara Larix
Rhett Linden, jury: No. 3
Claus Uriza: “Love the dark interpretation of the story which at some point fits the lyrics very well”
Director: Kira Madrigal
Claus Uriza: “The script of story is absolutely fantastic and to me maybe the best interpretation of the lyrics of all entries”
Michelle Leckrone, director: “Like the images good look”
Dandilyon Fluff, blogger: “My personal favorite remains the submission by Kira Madrigal, due in a large part to the focus on telling a story visually” … The story plays out well, elicits genuine emotional involvement and fits with the lyrics”
Director: MommaLuv Skytower
Adam Hashemi, jury: No. 3 “Has some great characters, love the weirdness”
Toxic Menges, jury: No. 3 “MommaLuv has made some fantastic images for this – Iove the concept and look”
Claus Uriza: “Knowing this is MommaLuvs debut machinima I have to say: Please make more films this is so talented and full of cool screwed impressions”
Arbit Delacroix, director: “Fantastic! It has such a cool crazy feel and it doesn’t even look like it was shot in SL, which is no small feat in itself! I loved the whole vibe and the RL video hybrid stuff was excellent too”
Mozy Pera, director: “Amazing creativity! I love how you mixed the RL and SL videos together!”
Director: Arbit Delacroix
Toxic Menges, jury: No. 1 “Arbit has used Windlight, depth of field, and beautiful effects and given the piece a narrative edge. It’s visually stunning. I Wish I had made it”
Rhett Linden, jury: No. 2
Adam Hashemi, jury: No. 4 “I guess it’s because I judge from a story aspect, more than a technical one. It bothers me that they try to tell a story but it doesn’t really work for me. It’s nice looking though, and it does get the music through well”
Giana Factory, band: No. 2
Iono Allen, director: No. 1
Hamlet Au, New World Notes: No. 1
Ormand Lionheart, director: “Well I see this as the winner. Awesome job overall. Beautiful scenes, awesome camera work, no lag, amazing attention to detail. Amazing looking avatar”
Claus Uriza: “Absolutely stunning video and seen from my perspective a true classic musicvideo. If I should point out one tricky part it’s the storyline. I had to watch few times before I really got it. One of my winners”
Director: Abdullah Yazimoto
Claus Uriza: “Unfortunately this fantastic video have been withdrawn by director”
