The Machinima portion of the inaugural WD Project: Sci-Fi Film Challenge (Australia) 2013 saw some amazing works come in from some of the finest machinima creators on the planet, but once again, the sublime Tutsy Navarathna, took top spot (AUD 750) with his remarkable 'The Residents', a machinima exploring worlds upon worlds. Erythro Asimov's 'Looking Around' won out in a close battle over Vilvi Rae's 'Re:Vive' and Fuchsia Nightfire & Blindboy Bumbo's 'Growing Robots' for 1st, 2nd and 3rd runners-up, with AvaJean Westland's 'Centuries Past', rounding out the top 5. AvaJean also won the UWA Centum Special Prize along with Glasz DeCuir's 'Misgiving'. Arrival by Cinestudios was adjudged the best film overall taking out the AUD3,000 top prize. A Full list of winners can be seen on the Screen My Shorts Facebook site. This challenge comes to us curtesy of WD (S.E.
