Machinima Expo: A Good Day at the Races!

Tutsy, Pixie & Nitro backstage at Machinima Expo Award Ceremony

This year’s Machinima Expo has just concluded – it was a good day at the races!
Of the six major awards, Tutsy’s films were awarded three.
The final results are:
The “Open This End” Award for outstanding film making was awarded equally to three films:
          - The Chapelside Deception by IceAxe (UK, Moviestorm)
- Wulf and Eadwacer by Hypatia Pickens (US, Second Life)
- The Last Syllable of Recorded Time by Tutsy Navarathna (France/India, Second Life)
The 1st and 2nd Jury Prizes were awarded to:
          - MetaSex by Tutsy Navarathna
          - The Last Syllable of Recorded Time by Tutsy Navarathna
The 3rd Jury Prize was awarded to:
-      Wulf and Eadwacer by Hypatia Pickens
The 4th Jury Prize was awarded to:
          - Unfinished Paintings by Miron Lockett (US, iClone)
The Grand Prize Winning Film was awarded to:
          - The Chapelside Deception by IceAxe (UK, Moviestorm)
If you get the chance, I’d especially recommend watching Miron Locket’s ‘Unfinished Paintings’. This is a great, fun high-tone production made in iClone by a clearly extremely talented guy, musically and visually. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to locate the film on the net to embed here, but when I do I will.
Hypatia Pickens’ ‘Wulf and Eadwacer’ is based on an Old English poem and has a great rhythm and beat. Definitely worth watching.
The Chapelside Deception’ by IceAxe is a more conventional narrative film consisting of “a beginning, middle and end”. Created using MovieStorm, it tells the story of corruption in a soccer team during the 1970s.
As part of the Expo, Tutsy was asked to produce a video interview based on questions supplied by Ricky Grove. I provided the translation from French to English.
For the first time, we can now release that interview publically.
Enjoy it best in 720 or 1080HD!
