Slartist@UWA Machinima Challenge - Awards Ceremony 6AM SLT 25 March 2018

Winners of the Slartist@UWA Machinima Challenge will be announced on Sunday 25 March 2018 at 6:00 AM SLT in front of historic Winthrop Hall in the UWA virtual campus in Second Life. Everyone is invited to attend. [SLURL]

The challenge is sponsored by LaPiscean Liberty & Slartist, Singh Albatros and The Writers Centre, Singapore. as well as VIRTLANTIS and PookyMedia This is not a continuation of the MachinimUWA series, which ended in Dec 2015, but is a special event that has a life primarily thanks to LaPiscean Liberty, who wants to nourish the dynamic partnership between artists and filmmakers.

The theme of the SLartist@UWA Machinima Challenge (L$430,000 prize pool) was 'ART OF THE ARTISTS.' We encouraged connections and collaborations between 3D artists and machinima makers. Any artworks that sit on the UWA Sims in Second Life, including artworks created when the sims themselves were created in 2009, could be selected to feature in the machinimas. Filmmakers could choose individual artworks or a collection of artworks around which to weave a story. The artwork(s) needed to be a relatively significant part of the story, and not merely something glimpsed in passing. Complete entry details and TP links can be found in the call for entries HERE
