Pursue Impossible: New Art & Machinima Works - Fuchsia, Panda, Nino, Dragonslord

'SURFING ON CERES' by Fuchsia Nightfire (Dorset, England) and Gweeb (Canada)

'GHOST RACE' by Panda (La Corneuve, France)

'Surfing on Ceres', a collaboration between Fuchsia Nightfire and Gweeb as well as 'Ghost Race' by Panda are the newest works in for the Pursue Impossible challenges. Interesting about panda's work is that its filmed entirely outside SL, and running to check the rules, we see that the way they are framed, the challenges are open to all forms of machinima! Thus for the first time in the MachinimUWA series, Panda brings us something completely different! These films are now part of MachinimUWA VIII: Pursue Impossible, the 8th UWA Short Animated Film Challenge.

Nino Vichan's 'Pursue the End of Homelessness'
Dragon's Lord's 'Reaching the Impossible' 
The Pursue Impossible Art Challenges continue with works coming in from Nino Vichan and Dragon's Lord, Nino with a melancholy piece touching the heart of humanity and Dragon's with an aspirational work. Both these works can be seen here:

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.
