Repeating the words of Karima Hoisan from her blog ... it speaks to the heart of all the amazing collaborations that have happened through serendipity since the UWA presence was formed:

Ohh..I can’t wait to share this little film with all of you…a 4:30 min black and white machinima that took hours of rendering, discussing, and polishing but was soooo much fun to do, and renews my belief in the wonders of Second Life and the Arts, for bringing unlikely bedfellows into the same creative bed. This is how we made the Costa Rica-Germany Connection… and all because of a University (Western Australia) in a Continent Down-Under, that has sparked so many film makers to action and to letting their artistic and philosophic rivers flow, in one direction from all over the world. I was not even thinking of entering as my computer and software, and just everything, is not good enough to compete at this very high level,which brings the most amazing films and filmmakers out, for now the fifth year. Well we put our energies and focus to where our ideas were and this led to the completion of our project, which has been entered alongside so many other wonderful collaborations and individuals that sprang up for this grand event of 2012:

MachinimUWA V: Seek Wisdom (5th UWA Short Animated Film Festival)

I hate to sound repetitive, and if I do,  it’s  only because I am once again so excited, but it is amazing how saying “Yes” to an idea and just diving into it, can be so rewarding. No boundaries, no cultural barriers, no prejudices, when creative people come together and start with just that little seed, and then work on it in a tight collaboration, until they see it bear fruit…ahh what total joy! What a harvest for the soul!!
