'Open Movie Remix' Competition Results

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...

Image Finalists

Although they didn't win, these artists did an excellent job and deserve a mention: [caption id="attachment_8258" align="alignnone" width="900"]Created by amogh Created by amogh[/caption] 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! [caption id="attachment_8252" align="alignnone" width="900"]Created by Masluch Created by Masluch[/caption] A classic homage to the famous "Death of Marat"! I love the lighting and the matching the two images ;) Well done Masluch! [caption id="attachment_8247" align="alignnone" width="900"]Created by Max Evil Created by Max Evil[/caption] Awesome! A nice way of combining 3 open movies into one. I like that Sintel doesn't trust that chubby squirrel (who would?). Great job Max Evil!  

Winner: Image Category

[caption id="attachment_8249" align="alignnone" width="900"]Created by Jonathan L Created by Jonathan L[/caption] 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. So congratulations, you've won any item from the Blender e-Shop + $250 donated to a charity of your choice + a permanent spot in the Winners Hall of Fame! 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 :/
