Results of the “1 Minute Machinima” Contest

We’re really pleased to announce the winner of the ‘I Minute Machinima Contest” we ran jointly with Koinup.

The top spot goes to Lorisrizzo, for Virtual Adam’s First and Last Birthday, who wins a one-year subscription to Moviestorm. We’re really looking forward to seeing more from this talented director.

The judges (Matt Kelland of Moviestorm, Jordi Cardona of Hiperia3D News and machinima expert Poid Mahlovich)  had this to say: “The video is absolutely superb. Sound is good, lighting, filming and editing is good, and the concept, while not entirely original, is well executed, and the writing is really interesting. You find yourself actually caring about Virtual Adam for a few moments, in that you know he’s only a character, but he’s a person too.”  Matt added, “I also like that it has subtitles, and isn’t just catering for an English-speaking audience.”  However, judge for yourself. Here’s the winning entry.

The judges also singled out two other films for honorable mentions.

Nowhere to Go (Celestina)  This packed in loads of plot to such a short film.

Bigshot (AdricAntFarm)  This film carried a strong message despite its apparent simplicity.

The rest of the entries can be found on Koinup

Thanks to all who entered, and many congratulations to the top three!
