Here in Mexico I’m studying in LAD: Licenciatura en Arte y Animación Digital (Digital Art and Animation). I’m surrounded by people who have been studying 3D and animation for years!
I’m sure they can be interested in the contests of the last post I wrote, but it was in italian. Let’s share the information!
View Award is an international contest or
There are different interesting categories, like Best Short, Best Environment Design, Best Character, Best Digital Visual Effects.
Well, I know that you have classes like “3D Environment Creation”, “Advanced Modeling”, “Visual Effects” and I’m sure that most of you have a project in mind or maybe in your computers. Why don’t you try? You have until September 15, 2012 to finish it.
Works by students will be especially welcome, since VIEW will always be the place to express and discover new Digital Talents.
The first prize is 2000 Euro (more or less 36000 pesos !).
It is easy to participate: if you produced a short in the period 2011-2012 with 2D, 3D and/or visual effects (or other stuff, see the official page!), you allowed to participate. Send the movie and submit the form (you’ll find the form in the official page).
PAY ATTENTION: in Europe we use PAL, not NTSC. This is important for the format you’ll use to export the video.
Max length: 30 minutes.
All entries should be submitted on DVD (Video: PAL 16/9, Audio: MPEG2 Stereo and be ready for screening)
Submitted work must be accompanied by some Hi-Res screenshots of your project and an Hi-Res photo of the director
Submitted work must be accompanied by a completed entry form, containing original signature of the person entering the VIEW AWARD competition
All entries must provide written authorization for any copyrighted material included in the work
All entries must be received by September 15, 2012
Winners will receive prizes in cash, technology and paid internships
(I’ll come back to Italy on the 6th of June, I can take with me some DVDs and avoid you to send it by mail, which could cost a lot…)
