MachinimUWA VI “Reflections”: L$1.1 million prize pool
Details of the 6th UWA Machinima Challenge have been released, with the headline news that this year the prize pool has been increased to L$1,100,000. The first prize alone is L$200,000, more than enough to keep me stocked in Ozimals rabbit food for a year!
This year’s theme is “Reflections”, interpreted in whatever sense the machinimatographer sees fit. Entries have to be submitted by midnight SLT 30th June 2013 with a recommended maximum length of 4mins 30 secs.
This year I am collaborating with singer-songwriter Lazurus Doghouse on a joint production. Laz has already written and recorded a song especially for the contest; I will handle the film and edit. The storyboard will be composed jointly between us.
When making films, my blog here tends to go quieter as I direct all my spare leisure-time to the production. I suspect that that will again be the case as, it goes without saying, the competition attracts the very best filmmakers in SL and nothing other than our very best efforts will suffix to make the grade.
