It’s been 5 weeks since the Open Movie Remix Competition was released and since then, 39 artists have submitted their entries.
The rules were simple, take any of the elements from the Blender Open Movies and use them to create a new concept. Sadly, many users experienced difficulty finding the open movie assets online, but for the few that did, there were some great entries.
This competition was special, because for the first time ever there will be two winners: Best Image and Best Animation. To start, let’s take a look at the images…
All Image Entries
Although they didn’t win, these artists did an excellent job and deserve a mention:
A beautiful image expanding the story of Sintel as she treks across the moutains. I love the way that you used the foliage to frame the scene, drawing attention to Sintel. Great job amogh!
A classic homage to the famous “Death of Marat”! I love the lighting and the matching the two images Well done Masluch!
Awesome! A nice way of combining 3 open movies into one. I like that Sintel doesn’t trust that chubby squirrel sneaking up to the table (who would?). Great job Max Evil!
Another expansion of Sintel to include a trek to a castle. The nature is overall really well done and the lighting is lovely. Well done quidsinski
This was submitted past the deadline, but I’m a nice guy so I’ll feature it here anyway Brilliant storytelling and camera angle. Grabs your attention immediately. Well done LswaN!
Winner: Image Category
Well done Jonthan L! This great image of Sintel contemplating the destruction of the world is awesome. I like that you kept it simple and easy to understand, whilst also including detail where it was necessary.
Winner: Animation Category
I nice homage to the cult hit Gangnam Style, using characters from Big Buck Bunny and Sintel! My only complaint is that I wish it were longer… I was just getting excited when it finished
Very Honourable Mention
An awesome animatic by the two time winner Pratik Solanki!
Pratik said that he actually didn’t want to be considered as a participate for this competition, so I can’t give out any prizes. But how can I not feature it?! Really incredible work. It was even reposted by the official Mango Facebook page. Awesome job!
A big thank you to everyone who entered into this competition! And my apologies to those who couldn’t find the open movie source files online. I honestly thought they would be easier to find :/
A new competition has just been announced: Christmas!
