Bitfilm Festival Machinima Competition
strapped from the Bitfilm website:
The MACHINIMA category is open for films of all genres that were shot live in a virtual environment like a computer game. There is no limit in length or size. We accept free artistic works as well as music videos or commercials. Submission deadline is June 1, 2006.
The winner film will receive a prize money of 1500 Euros and a Bitfilm Robot. The Award Show will take place on September 7 in Hamburg, Germany.
Please submit your film by uploading a digital video file.
We recommend Quicktime, size 320 x 240 pixels, video codec H.264, with a file size of about 8 MB per film minute, streaming mode. We also accept other formats like Windows Media or Real.
Only video files that work well technically and can easily be viewed online will be selected for the competition. If you need technical help, please contact our encoding partner Visukom.
We do not accept films sent in by conventional mail.
This is due to our new voting process: the Internet community will decide about the Bitfilm Awards by a public voting process between June and September 2006. Only the films with the highest number of Internet votes will be shown at our live events.
