As some of you know, we were nominated for some awards recently. Well, the machinima lords and lasses have handed down the full list of 2008 Machinima Filmfest Nominees, so go ahead and get your browsing on. There are a few good pieces on there- some of it I had seen, some of it was new to me.
Notable among those are several nominations for our friends over at Lit Fuse, a fun short called World of Workcraft that combines cs_office with WoW, and a cinematography nomination for TheDuoGroup. If you’re unfamiliar with that last one, you need to check out Without Providence, which has some stunning visuals for a Halo short. Big fan of their work. Great stuff.
Check out the whole list of nominations here. Seen any of the other entries? What are your favorites?
If you’re unaware, there are two super-cool things happening in the machinima world in November.
- Machinima Filmfest in New York. If you’re interested in presenting your piece for a variety of awards including Best Short, Best Writing, Best Director, etc., you’d better get cracking.
- Machinima Expo takes place in Montreal the very next week. There, selected works will be displayed to an audience of thousands.
For those machinimakers out there, this is a great chance to get some exposure and if you’re in the area of these events, I’m sure they’d be cool to attend. I hope to attend Machinima Filmfest myself.
In other news, Jace has produced some hot Smooth Few Films shirts for Daniel and I to wear to PAX:
