Do The Twist - Competition Winners

We asked you to surprise us.  And you did.

We had a record number of entries for this competition - 49 in all, ranging from comedy skits to sci-fi, drama, and the downright surreal.  Before we get to the winners, however, we’d just like to give an honourable mention to three that didn’t quite make the final list.  The Dubbya Zone: A Taste of Isolation is a twist on a movie classic.  We’ll leave you to find out which.  Blood Drive  is a one-liner with a purpose, and The Clarks: Stuck in the Middle brings a long-running Moviestorm series to a pause with a neat reverse.

And now to our final three.  It’s great to see some new names in the list, especially two film-makers who are only just starting out with Moviestorm.

Winner: The Exit  by Matthew Tyas is a marvellous piece with an ending that takes real skill to pull off. This was only Matthew’s second published Moviestorm film, and it’s extremely impressive.

Runner-up: Clockwork is another masterpiece from iceaxe.  The visual imagery is stunning in this well-told and stylish story in the vein of Clockwork Orange, 1984, and Ian McKellen’s take on Richard III.

Control Point by mellowhardy is a strange little tale set at an army checkpoint, very reminiscent of some of the BBC shorts of the 1970s and 1980s. The story is beautifully acted, and the camerawork is first-rate.  This is mellowhardy’s second published Moviestorm film.

Congratulations to the winners, and many thanks to all those who entered!  It was a lot of fun watching your movies: the full list of entries is here if you want to see them for yourself.
