Last weekend on Sunday was the South Australian short film festival. It was held at the University im going to (Adelaide Uni).
I entered a short 4min long animation called SEEK. Note that the theme for the contest was ‘Behind the Door’
I spent most of my holidays working on a short animation to enter, and managed to finish it off without to much trouble. I had to ditch a major scene in it however, because i was running out of time.
Ive been a bit hesitant to posting this here, mainly because i know its going to be heavily criticized on the technical points related to the 3D work. You have to keep in mind that i made this in under 20 days! I only found out about the festival less than a month before all entries were due.
Overall im not 100% happy with the animation, mainly because i don’t feel it represents what im capable of these days, but instead represents what i can do in a few rushed weeks. So yes, i know there are many different errors and issues with it…
You can view more info about the festival at the Adelaide Uni site here.
And I’m happy to say that i got first place in the film festival!
The prizes for first place:
- A very nice $900 HD Sony video camera (see pic below)
- 12 month subscription to the Media Resource Center
- 8 hours at a pro editing suite or recording studio
