The British Academy of Film and Television Arts is running a rather special 60-second short film competition at the moment here in the UK, with the winner set to receive an award at this year's BAFTA ceremony.

The great news is that Daniel Cox (known as 'Mantra' on FXhome.com) has got through the first round and his film is now eligible for public voting. Conveniently, his movie is also quite excellent, with a sweet Pixar sensibility and some slick camerawork.

Therefore, we're calling on all FXhomers to check out 'Fused' and vote for it by clicking the 'vote for this entry' button. If Mantra gets enough votes then he'll be in the running for the big award. Polls close on Sunday, so get voting!!

Some other good friends of mine are also in this same competition - the guys that worked on Get Lost and Coalition of the Ring.

Their entry can be found and voted for here:

http://www.60secondsoffame.co.uk/bafta/sixtysec/East/_entry/0000000016f808e601173abcc3dc0b8e/jsps/entry?foneblog=1201546705413

Please note that you're only allowed to vote for 1 movie, and the silly voting system doesn't do anything to prevent you from placing multiple votes. So if you've already voted for Mantra's movie, don't vote for this one as well! And vice versa.

Good luck to both Dan and Mike with their entries. smile

Great work, Dan!

I voted for you.

Tarn, you can tell your friends that there's that guy on that site that's called Plainly, he lives an ocean away and his real name is Mathieu, he's French but can also speak English so that's how he knew of your friends' movie, and Mathieu/Plainly thinks that they just made a great movie but he cannot vote for them for he has already voted for Dan/Mantra. *deep breath*

Hey everyone,

We had a great time at the BAFTA's on Sunday. We didn't win the competition our film was in but had a thoroughly good day/night.

A big thank you to everyone again for helping us get there!

All the best
