The FXhome Fanfilm Competition

THE VOTES ARE IN

Last week the FXhome team gathered at schwar’s new pad to watch the 50+ competition entries, armed with a multitude of pizzas and a healthy supply of beverages. Three and a half hours later the final movie unspooled, the lights came back on and we compared notes.

And now, it's what we’ve all been waiting for, the moment of truth, the big reveal – it’s time to announce the winners!

The winners

Once we got down to the finalists, the votes became so close that choosing the number one movie became impossible. We didn’t want to have to choose between the top two, so instead have decided to make them both joint first prize winners.

They are vastly contrasting movies, in terms of themes and techniques, each offering entirely different experiences for audiences. Most importantly, they are both genius in their own unique ways and as such we’re excited to announce the joint winners of the first FXhome Fanfilm Competition…

Click the titles to download the movies for watching!

Joint 1st place – Light by Joey Lawrence
Prize – VisionLab HD

Following the competition brief to the letter, Joey has delved into his deepest passion – light itself. With photography being his career of choice, Joey relies on light to bring his creations to life.

Taking an earnest approach and displaying his fears and emotions to the audience, Light embarks on an abstract and fantastical journey as Joey visually represents the significance of something we all take for granted.

Crucially, the cinematography is of a high standard, being both technically accomplished and visually inventive, from beautiful shots of snow falling through a windmill to the epic and emotive clifftop climax.

Light is captivating throughout, thanks to the unusual subject matter and the imaginative approach taken to explain Joey’s own understanding of the theme. This is an emotionally honest short film that will no doubt split audiences but which we feel is strongly deserving of joint first prize.


Malone says:
The visuals are absolutely fantastic and the whole thing works really well together. Has a really slick professional feel to it. A bit like a high quality TV commercial but more ethereal.

Tarn says: Great mood, explores the ideas really well, abstract but still effective. You get a real sense of Joey’s passion.

Cogz says: Perfectly fits the brief and has nice effects!

Congratulations to Joey, who wins FXhome’s flagship product, VisionLab HD!

Joint 1st place – Monkey Madness by Sindre ‘Klut’ Dybvik
Prize – VisionLab HD

Our other joint winner couldn’t be more different. Created by Klut, FXhome’s regular Norwegian lunatic, Monkey Madness is a freewheeling, anarchic, slapstick comedy with more in-jokes and references than you can shake a stick at.

Pinning down Monkey Madness to a single theme is impossible. Perhaps it is about Klut’s unhealthy obsession with monkeys. Or maybe it’s a fawning love letter to FXhome (we’re big fans of venality here) or The Matrix or Waser. When you boil it down to its core, however, it’s a celebration of the act of being a fan. Klut’s message is that it doesn’t matter what you’re a fan of – but if you’re a fan, go all the way.

The enthusiasm in Monkey Madness is infectious, driven by the boundless energy and rapid pace of each scene. What could have been a jumbled mess instead pulls together into a very funny and surreal series of sketches. If nothing else, they illustrate that Klut is very, very crazy, even for a Norwegian.

There’s too many brilliant moments to list them all and we wouldn’t want to spoil the fun of watching it for the first time. FXhome veterans in particular should keep an eye out for countless sly nods to old classics – how many homages can you count?

Technically Monkey Madness may not be on the same level as Light, but for capturing the very essence of ‘enthusiasm’ in five minutes of electric madness, Klut is also well deserving of joint first prize.


Schwar says:
I find myself watching this again and again but I don't know why! Amazing!

Malone says: What can I say about this? If you looked up "WTF" in the dictionary it wouldn’t be there, ‘cos it’s not a word, but if it was then you'd see a picture of Klut’s face peering out from beneath his exploding hair. An indescribable classic.

Tarn says: Utterly brilliant and classic. You can't fault this for enthusiasm.

Cogz says: Genius, just genius. Instant classic!

Jack says: This has a very European crazy style which I liked. All the scenes are interesting and funny – the main thing is that I really enjoyed it.

Congratulations to Sindre, who not only has frightened generations of children with his hair but has now also won a copy of VisionLab HD!

Now we come to third position, which finds another completely contrasting movie. If there's one thing we were pleased to see with the competition, it was the wide variety!

3rd Place – Napoleon Skywalker by Chris Hoffman
Prize – A choice of CompositeLab Pro or EffectsLab Pro

Some of the best fanfilms over the years have been ones that have blended two different things together – George Lucas in Love (Shakespeare in Love + Star Wars), Troops (Cops + Star Wars) – and Chris Hoffman’s Napoleon Skywalker uses the same technique, mixing (you guessed it) Napoleon Dynamite and Star Wars. The premise, as he describes it, is “What if cinema’s two most whiny teenagers’ worlds collided?”

Napoleon Skywalker is a near-perfect translation of the official Napoleon Dynamite trailer, which we highly recommend watching just prior to Chris’ movie. Utilising Star Wars toys and stop motion animation, each shot from the official trailer is converted to the Star Wars universe with loving care.

Particular highlights include the switch of a bicycle to a speederbike and the replacing of the Pegasus doorsign with a Mynok Crossing warning. The humour is spot on and the quality voice acting and music choice brings the movie together as its own entity rather than simply a spoof, showing a clear affection for both its sources.


Malone says:
Quality spoof and animation. I’m not a big Napoleon Dynamite fan, but there are lots of jokes and I can see people loving this.

Tarn says: Cool mix! Simple but effective animation, the dance sequence is brilliant. Entertaining and fun.

Cogz says: Simply hilarious.

Jack says: A very clever mix of the two films which works really well. The funny quotes from Napoleon Dynamite are used really well. I also thought the animation was great, a lot of effort made with stop motion and green screening.

Congratulations to Chris, who wins an FXhome Pro product of his choice.

Honourable mentions

There were many other films that didn't quite make it to a prize position but which are still superb and well worth a watch. Here are ones we felt deserved recognition (hit their titles to download the movies!):

Rough Justice by Mikko Lopponen

This was very popular among the FXhome team and only just missed out on a prize. A superb spoof of good and bad action movies, Rough Justice is very, very funny and well edited with clearly a lot of thought put into every scene, though we felt it didn’t quite satisfy the brief as much as we’d hoped. We can’t wait to see what Mikko and his team do next!

Coliseum Confrontation by Rudy Picardo

Another slick and high quality action sequence from Rudy, delivering more than your fair share of lightsabering, kung fu, bullet-time and superpowers. Brilliantly shot and edited with excellent stunt performances from the two leads and good use of location, this is exciting from start to finish. A little too distant from the competition brief for a prize, unfortunately.

Off to the Store by John Biscardi

So short it’s easy to miss on first viewing, Off to the Store is actually a rather inspired spoof of hit TV series 24. Capturing the style of the show with perfect attention to detail, John then applies the high drama atmospherics to an utterly mundane event. Clever and amusing, we just wish it had been a little bit longer. A day in the life of Jack Bauer in which absolutely nothing interesting happens but still presented with the trademark tension would be superb.

Skitzo by Ryan brain & Stepladder

The talented crew behind the Unwritten Rule Trilogy are back with an altogether different offering. Skitzo is a disturbing piece of horror puppetry and animation that recalls early expressionist German filmmaking with bold, noirish cinematography and character design. Inspired by the Judderman Metz commercials and Tim Burton’s stop motion films, Skitzo is a memorable and haunting fairy tale.

Amy by Junuc Kleen

Fitting the brief perfectly, Amy explores Junuc’s love of one of his oldest friends and his efforts to help her after years of neglect and accidents. Heartfelt and with a strong passion for an unusual subject, Amy throws an honest spotlight onto one man’s obsession. If the pacing had been tighter and the cinematography more focused this would have been a strong contender.

The Hit by Bryce and Matt

Many will have already seen this production, a slick action sequence with inventive and daring camerawork, innovative special effects and good use of light and grading. One of the more professional entries, The Hit is impressive and entertaining but unfortunately did not fit the brief as required. Nevertheless, it is recommended viewing for action fans.

Thanks again to everybody for entering our first competition, we’re extremely pleased with the results and it was great fun watching through the submissions.

Firstly. Well done to Joey and Klut.

They are brilliant entries and I enjoyed them both - I also happened to be stupid enough to film a clip for Klut that made it into his piece.

crazy

Joey's piece about light is brilliantly shot, and Kluts comic piece about monkeys is fantastically crafted. You both deserve it!
I'm about to watch the runners up. Can't wait! smile

First I wanted to say thanks to the FXHome team for being listed as an honorable mention. I eventually plan on purchasing an upgrade soon, so I actually just prefer the recognition. My only regret is that I wasn't able to win anything for my esteemed associate Chris Cowan (user CX3), whom I know would make good use of the software.

As far as the winners. Let me say that they are well deserved. Here are some of my reasons why each film was deserving:

1) Joey Lawrence's piece is true art. I think each person that watches this would give a slightly different interpretation to his passion. Visually, I found myself watching this a few times just to study his work. My favorite parts have to be the "precipice" shot and how his light, ignites the street lights. Beautiful stuff.

2) If Joey represents the "alpha" of this competition, then Sindre Dybvik's is certainly the creative "omega" This film is hilarious. My two favorite things
a) "If you like sportsman, then you can sport a monkey"
b) The opinions of the FXHome staff. "Worst movie ever!"

3) Chris Hoffman's Napelon Skywalker. Well I'm a huge Napoleon Dynamite fan. This is a superb interpretation of both Star Wars and Napoleon Dynamite. My favorites are
a) Napoleon trying to feed Tina the TaunTaun
b) Riding the landspeeder off of sweet jumps.
c) "Vote for Lando"

You don't have to be a student of the Rex Kwon Do defense system to enjoy this video.

I think comedy is one of the most difficult genres of filmmaking and/or video, so I bow to both Sindre and Chris efforts. And Joey's work is definitely shows his passion. These accolades are well deserving. clap

I haven't seen the other honorable mentions, but I know this post is too long. confused So I'll just send PMs to the other honorees later. biggrin

For those of you who didn't place, I'm still very very serious about seeing everyone's work. If you don't post it on FXHome, please send me a PM. I'd love to see all the submissions and see what I can learn.

Chris Hoffman here!

Thanks to everyone! I'm with Joey in saying it was great to be in such a fun competition.

The dance scene in "Napoleon Skywalker" took me somewhere around 3 hours by itself to animate so I'm really glad everyone enjoyed it.

Thanks also to the folks at TheForce.net, which is where I saw the original link for the contest.

Finally, thanks to my wife for providing awesome voice work (no previous experience) and to Kyle who let me borrow his original 1978 landspeeder (and smear clay on it.)

Congratulations to everyone! Looking forward to your next competition. I actually just finished Rough Justice completely, music has been changed a bit and shuffled around, but it's still basically the same trailer. I'm really glad that the fxhome dudes liked it, I'll try to make something more grandeur next time.

Looking forward to watching all of these entries this night.

Glad everyone is enjoying the movies! I was really pleased with how diverse the entries were, as shown by the winning top 3.

We'll definitely be holding another competition here at FXhome.com in the future, although it probably won't be for quite a while. Aside from anything else, we need to recharge our batteries after watching so many short films in one evening!

I'll see if I can get links to the rest of the movies later in the week so you guys can check them out.

In the meantime.....

OK, we all know that Klut's Monkey Madness has lots of cunning references to movies and FXhome. Here's a few I've spotted:

The Lilting Tones of Waser - That's right, Waser provides the opening narration!

Going Back in Time - The first glimpse of FXhome.com on klut's computer is from a very old version of the website, back when it had what has become known as the 'neon death blue' colour scheme.

Gir Finds A Piggy - An obscure movie from the mists of time shows up to distract Klut. You can watch the whole movie by clicking here.

Sweet Monkey Love - The be-hatted monkey lover seen near the end is none other than FXhome.com regular and beta tester er-no. I believe he and the monkey are still living happily together.

The Ballaarrpp Klutfish - Right at the end, underneath the FXhome logo, a curious fish moves past the camera. This is the infamous Ballaarrpp fish, which was stumbled upon once during a discussion in the FXhome.com chatroom. This particular version happens to have Klut's hair attached. Click here for the classic original. The fish's name is a story for another time.

What other references/homages have people spotted?

Just as you all know, when you see the clip of Er-no and the monkey, Er-No is the guy to the right.
People have been asking me about it.

Just wanted to say that I am really really really really REALLY chuffed that I got a mention!!!!!!!

I didn't even think I'd get that. Personaly I didnt think my film was that good. But hey, who am I to judge.

Now here's me being a bit vein.

I don't suppose the fxhome team could see their way to putting our films on the Cinima so we can see how many downloads we are getting.

I know you must all have a lot of work to do, but as I said this is just me being a bit vein.

Ps

well done to every one else who made the final line up weather you were mentioned or not. We all worked really hard on these films and that fact would not have been lost on the Fxhome team.

I don't see why the people who submited the films can't post them in the directory, all you need to do is write it up get a few screen grabes and point the link to the FXhome download (someone at FXhome can shut me up if I'm wrong)

FXHomers:

Just to follow up with the previous few posts, my submission is available online on my Episode Alpha site .

For your iPod Video users, I encoded the video for the iPod. (My cousin requested this, but I'm not sure if it works that well).

As with Klut's post, my submission is also a part of a video I'm frantically trying to finish within a few months. (Being in the "real world" makes it difficult to work on my personal projects). The final video, along with some additional extras (i.e. anatomy of a shot, commentaries) will be posted on the FXHome Cinema.

Go "sport your monkey!"

Hi, not sure if the FXHOME team have the time, but could you tell me a bit more than you did, on how I could improve my film 'AMY' so I can make better ones in the future.

Thanks.

If any one else has got any suggestions, I don't mind the advice.

Thanks.

I’d also like you hear what the judges thought i needed to improve or what they liked and didn’t like, that sort of thing.

but for everyone else here is my film if you wanted a view

just so you know this is only part two of a complete 5min film but the first half was kind of random lol (why I submitted it as its own film in competition)

the complete video is on site

I thought teen education was very funny. My favourite line was "Did you know - you cant park here!" I liked the MTV style camera work.

In regards to how to improve AMY I dont no what to suggest really. I think you had some interesting shots e.g. the crash, but you could have cut down some of the more lengthy scenes. e.g. at the beggining when you walked around the car.
