Last year I placed first in the Adelaide Uni Film Festival (this thread), this year I got 3rd place! Not to bad considering all the issues I had making this one
I entered a 5min long animation (half game art demonstration, half time lapse) called ‘Gothic Rose’. Note that the theme for the contest was ‘Life looks different though a Gothic lens’
I had a different project in mind, but by the final day before all entries were due I worked out I wouldn’t have anything worth submitting finished. So I quickly put together the Gothic statue scene (using the statue I’d made for the different project idea), and spent the whole final day modeling the Gothic rose (while recording both the screen and real video for the time lapse) Then I slugged it out till 3am that night editing and putting it together in just one day (total).
It was a plan crazy enough to work… And I think it worked out ok in the end :spin:
Thanks to Christiaan Bakker (AniCator) for his awesome music, which was perfect. I received a lot of positive feedback and comments on the music alone. There was also a massive turnout this year, the theater was packed with people, pretty much no one turned up to watch the entries last year.
So the third place prizes included:
- Work Experience with a local 2D/3D visual effects and animation company
- Membership to Adelaide Cinematique
- And a bluetooth ‘Dongle’
I’m especially happy with the work experience, for a few reasons, definitely looking forward to that.
