As we approach the final 24 hours before the close of entries, more works have come in from all over the globe. Vilvi Rae takes us back to one of the most remarkable days in the history of war with 'No Man's Land'. Mexi Lane shows how people try to cross borders to greener pastures with 'Mediterranean'. Arrow Inglewood attempts to transcend the space-time continuum with 'Pas de Digital'. Elizabeth Spieler's 'Transcending Borders' gives us an insight into the wonders of the human mind. Alfonso Garavito Olivar shows us how virtual worlds help with language teaching in a global interconnected world with "La profesora de lengua castella". Alfonso's work epitomises the global nature of virtual world collaborations, with himself hailing from Colombia, now living in the USA, the poet, Beatriz Giovanna Ramirez is also from Colombia but living in Spain, the musician, David Postigo Rodriguez is from Spain, the voice over actress, GLOR14 is from Argentina and the SIM designer, Kai Separis is from Japan. These films are the latest entries to the L$545,000++ MachinimUWA VII: Transcending Borders, the 7th UWA Short Animated Film Challenge. The 'Transcending Borders' theme was selected by Professor Ted Snell, Director of the Cultural Precinct, UWA and who inspired the very first of the UWA art challenges in 2009. This theme is in honour of the 'Transcending Borders' exhibition at UWA's Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery in 2014. CLOSING DATE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS 31st OCTOBER 2014.
You may interpret the theme as you see fit, however the average viewer would need to be able to appreciate how you fit this theme (alternatively, please indicate in the notes how it fits in the film notes on the web). Your machinima must be made specifically for this challenge, and this should be indicated in the opening credits 'For The University of Western Australia's MachinimUWA VII: Transcending Borders'. You do not have to film on the UWA sims, however this of course will be appreciated, and there is a Special UWA Prize which will be made available to a film which includes either Winthrop Clock Tower, The Somerville Auditorium or The Sunken Gardens.
ALSO, public viewing for TRANSCENDING BORDERS: The 5th UWA Grand 3D Art Challenge is now open (though the closing date for entries is the same as the Machinima - 31st October)
Special prizes are also offered for machinima that best portray one or a few of the artworks entered to TRANSCENDING BORDERS: The 5th UWA Grand 3D Art Challenge.
