Natascha Randt & Karima Hoisan's "Chasing a Butterfly"
Joseph Nussbaum & Boris Twist's "Quest"
Secret Rage's "The Gift
Sophia Yates "IF"
13 days to go till the deadline for entries and we have a wonderful set of 4 to add to the field. 2 amazing partnerships one spanning the oceans and one across the USA, bring us 'Chasing A Butterfly' with the powerful combo of Natascha Randt and Karima Hoisan along with 'Quest' by Joseph Nussbaum and Boris Twist. Gifted filmmaker, Sophia Yates asks the question with the thought provoking 'IF' and the ever generous Secret Rage, bestows on us all.... "The Gift"
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.
