MachinimUWA VIII: Jackson Redstar's 'Reach' & Sarah Whitney 's 'Pursue Impossible'
Jackson Redstar's 'Reach' for MachinimUWA VIII: Pursue Impossible
Pursue Impossible from Sarah Whitney on Vimeo.
Two remarkable submissions in for MachinimUWA VIII: Pursue Impossible.Jackson Redstar's 'Reach' tells the tale of a young singer who is inspired to put his life on the line for his country and how he never gives up on his dreams when things go wrong, and Sarah Whitney's 'Pursue Impossible' tells the tale of the Wright brothers, who in pursuing the impossible, changed the face of humanity forever.
These films are now part of MachinimUWA VIII: Pursue Impossible, the 8th UWA Short Animated Film Challenge. UWA's L$560,000++ Pursue Impossible Art & Film challenges are so themed in honour of UWA adopting Pursue Impossible as their clarion call in real life. CLOSING DATE FOR SUBMISSIONS IN 31ST OCTOBER 2015.
You may interpret the theme 'Pursue Impossible' 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 that accompany your film how it fits). 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 VIII: Pursue Impossible' (or end credits if it works better creatively). 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 starts at the same point as the UWA Pursue Impossible Video, at Winthrop Clock Tower.
ALSO, public viewing for PURSUE IMPOSSIBLE: The 6th UWA Grand 3D Art Challenge is now open (closing date for entries is the same as the Machinima - 31st October)
Do visit the UWA Challenge Gallery HERE to view the submissions so far.
