Xtranormal Summer Movie and SOH Graphic Contests Update

Xtranormal, Star Trek Entry
Summer Movie Contest.
To begin, I'd like to thank all of you that took the time to vote for and Youtube 'Like' my entries in Xtranormal's Summer Movie Contest and the Sydney Opera House's Graphic Contest.

Thanks to your efforts I managed to place a very respectable seventh place in Xtranormal's contest - where the top ten most Liked entries received a prize. Seventh won me 2000 Xtranormal points - which I think equates to about US$20.00 in real money if I had to buy those points. Still, you can do a lot with 2000xp on Xtranormal so it was great to have even placed when I thought I'd be lucky to squeak in at tenth. You can see all the winners on Xtranormal's blog.

GoAnimate SOH Graphic
Competition Entry.
I wasn't quite so fortunate with the Sydney Opera House's Graphic Contest. My entry was accepted into the first round alongside about 53 other entries. Unfortunately I don't know if I got enough votes to make the top twenty that went before the judges (since there was no record of how many votes each entry got) but even if I did, my entry wasn't accepted by the judges for round two.

Interestingly one of the entries that has made it all the way through to round three (the final round) had the same theme as mine (Grandma coming to visit and the children not wanting to be welcomed by her)... I wonder if that one lost a few points for originality?

Since I haven't posted my SOH entry to this blog yet I've embeded it below for your enjoyment. All the backgrounds were created by me using Koolmoves and I voiced the main character (Ben). Ben's Mom and Grandma were voiced by GoAnimater, Lord Sorcery.

If you're interested in going behind the scenes I created this semi-tutorial video that shows how I created the exterior background of Ben's house (the scene where he's falling from the window) in Koolmoves.
