The Reallusion's Sci-Fi Movie competition has concluded and Reallusion thanks everyone who has participated in this successfull event (over 60 quality videos were received). Reallusion has also offered a variety of awards and prizes from several branded sponsors which are ready for all the winners. Each video submission was screened and meticulously reviewed for each award category and prize. You may view some of the entries here in the Watch area.

To better understand how each award category was considered; we invite you to refer to the descriptions below. We would also like to make note that we did not receive any qualifying video for the Mashup Media category, but we did receive two outstanding films for Movie Tribute. This led us to offer the initial Mashup Media award as an additional Movie Tribute prize as we feel it is only fair to award your efforts. You will also notice that the Super Hero category was retitled to Space Man Category as our judges felt it would better suit the winner.

 

As usual, all categories were judged on quality, creativity and exceptional effort. The judging was not easy as there were several great films to choose from, but in the end we trust that you agree with our picks. Thank you all for your great participation, and we look forward to seeing you next year where we expect to have an even greater prize line-up for all you filmmaking enthusiasts.
