An "awesome foursome" of Machinima have come in with approximately 48 hours left for entries to UWA's MachinimUWA VII: Transcending Borders. Yepar Saenz from the Island of Martinique brings us a Machinima inspired by Baudelaire's poem "Flowers of Evil" dancing between shadow and light, death and birth. Glasz DeCuir seems to have chanced upon an incident at Burn2 involving SaveMe Oh bringing us "Disappear - Simulator Crossing". NicoleX Moonwall charms again with her unique single cut style with "The Great Hunter of Tuna" while AvaJean Westland teaches us to look beyond the borders that stifle us with "Changes".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.
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.
