During November we were offering a free Tubetape.com greenscreen suit to our favourite submitted movie. Thanks to all the people that took up the challenge! We had such a hard time deciding on the winner that we're now giving away two suits rather than one.

The winners are:

Aculag, for Everything's Coming Up Roses, a dark piece of absurdist comedy.
Randomlard101 for 5 Days..., a remarkable achievement for such young filmmakers - we can't wait to see where they go from here.

If Aculag and Randomlard could contact us with their home addresses, we'll get the prizes sent off right away! For those of you that didn't win, don't forget you can pick up your own greenscreen suit from Tubetape.com.

Congratulations to the both of them! We'll be starting a new competition soon, so keep an eye on the news page!

In other news, don't forget our Astounding Christmas Deal if you're looking to buy FXhome software for the best price ever!

Congrats guys! I'm sure you'll both put it to good use. It really is one of those things that the more you think about it, the more you realise the potential.

Just the other day, for example, I was shooting a flying sequence with a local filmmaking team. We had a fan in order to create some 'wind' on the actor, in his hair and clothing. The problem is that while it made his hair move satisfactorily, his shirt was a little too heavy and far away, so barely moved.

The solution? Get another guy in the greenscreen suit, positioned behind the 'flying' actor, and get the greenscreen suited chap to physically move the shirt up and down in a flying motion. Once the shot is keyed, it'll just be a guy with his shirt flapping realistically!
