Koinup and Moviestorm present “The 1 Minute Machinima Contest”

Koinup, the virtual world and machinima social network, and Moviestorm, the 3D movie making software application, are delighted to announce “The 1 Minute Machinima Contest”.

Koinup founder Pierluigi Casolari and Moviestorm founder Matt Kelland launched the competition in order to promote Koinup to Moviestorm’s community of amateur movie-makers, and to bring awareness of Moviestorm to Koinup’s clientele of machinima creators and digital artists.

The competition is open to machina creators throughout the world. Create a short video, 1 minute length (or less), on any subject, in any language, and post the results on Koinup! Anything goes - it can be funny, exciting, dramatic, or whatever you like. The only rule is that you have to create it with Moviestorm.

The winner will receive a one year subscription to Moviestorm and will be promoted on both the Moviestorm and Koinup websites. Runners up will also be promoted on both sites.
Moviestorm software is free to download for 30 days trial (Mac or Windows XP/Vista/7), after which a membership is required to use the application.

Vampire stories have been popular for centuries, and never more so than now.  But it’s not just blood and gore any more.  More and more vampire stories are about romance, and the thrill of forbidden love.

Now you can create your own paranormal romance stories and evoke the passion and thrill of your favourite vampire movies with this new Moviestorm content pack.

Includes animations for vampire attacks and intimate clinches, customisable vampire heads, a battered pickup truck and foliage backdrops to recreate those deep forest scenes.
