Machinima.com are running a competition with some great prizes to celebrate the launch of their UK site
They want you to create a music video for a track by Jonathan Coulton. You can choose from two of his tracks, ‘Bacteria’ or ‘Todd the T1000’, both of which are available for free download from the competition page.
Prizes include an Alienware laptop and a Sanyo Xacti DMX-HD2 Camera.
The submission rules are fairly relaxed, although you must be a UK resident to enter. Under ‘What is Machinima’ they define the term as “the art of real-time filmmaking in a virtual environment (oftentimes within a video game engine)”. So videos created in Antics will be accepted.
Entries are invited up to August 1st, voting begins August 2nd.
