Topic: Darkness & Light RESULTS!
We've concluded the judging process for our summer Darkness & Light animation contest! Many thanks to all of the entrants, the judges, my contest co-runner Nathan Wells, and our contest sponsors:
Without the generosity of companies like Dragonframe and Brickstuff, having great prizes for these contests wouldn't be possible. Both, sincerely, make great products that have a lot of use for brickfilming, and I encourage you to give them a look even if you haven't won something in this competition.
Without further ado, the results:
1. Sola Luna by rioforce
2. The Tree by legoguy501
3. Experience and Error by nswihart
4. Horace and Horace's Day Out by sillypenta
5. And Men Loved Darkness by Pritchard Studios
6. Grief's Restitution by aquamorph
7. Dark Flight of the Moth by xxgbhxx
8. The Way Out by osomstudios
9. The Infinity Bulb by jasper
10. Guns 'N Roses by Onecrasfilms
I'd just like to add that we enjoyed watching all 25 entries, and it was neat to see how everyone worked to tell creative stories built around the contest theme this year. There were a lot of neat uses of creative lighting techniques as well as story-driven use of the "darkness & light" theme, which we were happy to see. It wasn't easy to pick a top ten, but that's part of why we don't try to rank *all* of the entries in these contests. The quality of entries is good, and it's just not possible for five judges to reach a consensus on more than a top ten. Thank you again to everybody who made a film for this contest!
