The votes are in...it's time for the FXhome Awards 2009!



Congratulations everyone!

2008 was an unusual year for FXhome. The company focused its software development on the new PhotoKey range, which proved to be hugely popular, until the move back to video with the Xmas Bundles and our current projects. We expanded, with new staff (hi Lucy!), products and ideas. We produced four short films, two of which have already been released. Meanwhile the community was busy working on movies and keeping the in-depth discussion flowing in the forums.

Movies


Amazingly, the most downloaded movie of 2008 was the legendary Art of the Saber, which still draws in massive crowds, many years after its debut. When will somebody create a lightsaber fight to truly rival it in the FXhome.com cinema?

The movies that attracted the most attention were both related to Atomic Productions, which perhaps isn't a surprise given their unique marketing talents. Messages, the Atomic entry to the VideoWrap competition, received the most comments, with Nightfall Studio's parody Cover's Redemptiathon coming in a close second and proving that controversy can definitely get results.

Meanwhile, the year's most prolific filmmaker was Shadow013, submitting a wide range of movies in a variety of genres. It was exicting to watch Shadow013's skills develop over the year, culminating his 2009 debut of Killed Softly. I have no doubt that in the future we'll be seeing Shadow013 as a serious contender for the movie award categories.

Forum


Rawree takes the crown for having the highest rated post of 2008, with his amazing selection of blood stock footage which he made available to everybody for free. His generosity was clearly appreciated, with a +29 rating on that single post. The topic itself also came in as the third highest rated of the year. Appropriately, the second highest rated post of the year was by FXhome Award winner Sollthar, who went into extreme detail to explain various compositing methods – it's no surprise that people voted for him in droves once he was nominated.

The biggest topic of the year was reserved for one man: Barack Obama. 2008 will probably be remembered as the Year of Obama, and FXhome wasn't safe from his political onslaught, with the US presidential election discussion clocking up an insane 30,498 views. Highlighting the fact that FXhome.com is a special kind of Internet community, this topic also holds the record for being the highest rated topic of 2008. That's right, folks: a massively political topic is also the highest rated topic of the year. You wouldn't find that many places, so thank you again to everyone for having the restraint and intelligence to debate in such a sophisticated manner.

We don't like to dwell on the negative side of things, but we just had to link to the lowest rated post of 2008. There are few things funnier than the Atlantic language barrier.

FXhomers


The highest rated FXhomer of 2008 was Tarn, but he cheats by being an FXhome staff member. The next three big guns were pdrg, ben3308 and Arktic, all known for offering great advice and contributing wisely to debates. It's guys like this that set a good standard to follow and represent the friendly attitude we expect at FXhome.com.

Of the new arrivals in 2008, spydurhank has made the greatest impression, collecting the most positive ratings. It's always great to see people discover FXhome, whether it's our products or the community, and 2008 saw a record increase in users, knocking us past the 100,000 registered members mark. We look forward to greeting even more people throughout 2009.

Presets are an important part of the FXhome Lab products and this year Jabooza contributed the most to the online library, submitting an amazing 26 individual presets. As always, thanks to everyone that takes the time to use our products and create presets for others to use. The top preset of 2008 was Bucees' blood explosion 2, which was downloaded over 1500 times.


What were your favourite FXhome moments of 2008? To quote Sollthar - which posts or films made you laugh, which made you cry? Which touched your heart and your mind?

2008 was a great year, and it was largely thanks to all of you guys. Here's to the rest of 2009!

Whoa, great results! Congrats Ben, Ashman, Tarn, Axeman, and Sollthar on winning!

To all those that nominated my movie 'Messages' I don't know if I ever said it, so: thanks a bunch! As well as the FXhome crew for creating such an elaborate, fun, prize-filled contest!

Oh, and thanks for the multiple Atomic Productions plugs in that first post, Tarn, you know we love 'em! biggrin

I forgot to mention in my main post - we'll be sorting out the various prizes over the next two weeks, including ones for the forum categories. Our schedule next week is a bit hectic due to PMA, but after that we'll be making sure everyone gets their rewards! smile

Congrats again to everyone. Even if you didn't win, or didn't get nominated, these awards should still be considered as reflecting on you, because the community is, of course, a cooperative effort, and it needs every single person to be what it is.

Sollthar, you looked very majestic in that vid biggrin

Also, I so liked the way the Fxhome guy's presented the results in the vid, it was even better than watching the oscars LOL

Compliments to everyone

Have yourself a bottle of shampers

Congratulations to all the worthy nominees, and especially to the winners!

Thank you to all who voted for me. I'm quite excited and pleased that you found me helpful over the past year, and thank you profusely for the recognition. Now that the winners have been announced, and I am among them, I can anxiously await finding out what I have won. biggrin

Working various members of the community into the presentation video was great. My thanks go out to the presenters as well. And to FXhome for instigating this excellent tradition.

I want to thank everyone on the FXhome team, TupeTape, my fellow nominees and of course all the FXHomers and friends who voted for Pages in cinematography. I'm mega stoked to have won, and relish this experience.

I'm just so very, very happy about the results (Almost everything I voted for won! Especially happy about Coalition of Heroes!) and can't be more grateful to those who both ran the contest and voted for the win. I assure you all, it won't go to waste. biggrin

This all aside, I've posted a rather lengthy response to this all on my blog, so check that out if you wish. If I have the time I think I'll get around to recording some sort of acceptance speech, haha. wink

Thanks again!

Well done everyone, every award well deserved by the looks of things. It's awesome to get a mention in the 2008 summary section as well although it does make me think I should maybe work on some more stuff for the community like I said I would in that topic. Hmmm...

I'd like to congratulate all nominees and winners of the awards.

Though I'm currently on the other side of the world, on the edge of Mount Doom and a few kilometres from Ithilien, I just had to stop and find somewhere to check out the results.
Can't wait to catch up on all the details and watch the video.

All the best, Leeloo

Well done to all those who were nominated and to those that won!

'Poppies' was put together through a combination of help and support and without that it could not have been the project it is. I'd also like to thank, Mantra who was our 1st AD and Hybrid-Halo for the VFX work, it made a real difference to the final product.

Cast and Crew were fantastic on this project and a lot of free time and donations were made to make it possible - so thank you Mike Ford for the props and costumes smile

Most of all I'd like to thank the community for voting for our film, it really encourages us to keep pushing.

I also have to thank my wife who puts up with my crazy film obsession and the huge turn around of random cast and crew we have staying at our house. biggrin

Best,
Ash.

Another year, another award STOLEN from Dennis & Ronnie Films. It's a corrupt system, I tell ya! wink

I'm only kidding. I had a huge grin on my face the whole time I was watching the awards video. It was very awesome, great job guys. And congrats to the winners! It'll be fun to see this turn into a yearly event. Hopefully I'll actually be able to contribute something this year. Portal and Roses both seem like ages ago...

Looking forward to the rest of 2009, everyone!

Thanks. Coming from a king of comedy, I'm glad you found the video amusing. I think the Oscar-worth cheesy music really helped. razz

Unfortunately this is only the edited highlights version, so it doesn't include the elaborate, $200k song and dance routine that Cogz and Jack performed. Maybe next year.

Great results! Congratulations to everyone that won/was nominated. Everything that I voted for won, except in the Special Effects award, for which I voted Panzer Corps Teaser III, but effects are always tricky to judge.

Also, thanks for mentioning Cover's Redemptiathon and my presets! Now I can say that I was mentioned in the first ever FXhome Awards! Hopefully it won't be the last time. biggrin

What ever happened to the winners receiving an extra icon next to their name for winning? I thought it was decided that that would happen.

Heh, Thanks.

Ben and I rented Recon 2022: The Mezzo Something Something at Blockbuster and skimmed through it a little bit, generally a pretty awful movie- but by far the best bits were with Sollthar in them; witty, fun, comical and swiss. wink


So I knew I couldn't return it without reminding myself of this. Thus the shot of Marco von Moos' demise in the film is my avatar.

Oh yeah, and what did happen to the winners (nominees too maybe? biggrin) getting some kind of forum tag or icon on their profiles/posts from the contest? And are there prizes for the Forum Support and Helpful Filmmaker categories? I'd love to know them.

Hey, give us some time guys. razz It's the PMA show in Vegas this week, which occupied most of our design resources, so we haven't had time to implement the award winner icon yet.

Next week we'll be sorting out the prizes and the award icons. There will indeed be prizes for the forum awards as well. More info to come...

Meanwhile, everybody else should start thinking about next year. wink

And yeah, Sollthar, good acting man! Honestly, no joke, you were the sole saving grace of the entire movie. Most of it, if you don't mind me saying so, was cringe-worthy god-awfulness. But your bits were priceless!

The well-acted spunky, sarcastic, well-intentioned foreigner of the crew. It worked perfectly in a sea of otherwise poor, rigidly-acted characters. biggrin

Yeah, not to shy away from the Awards, but I, too, found Marco to be the standout of the Recon film. The film itself felt like softcore porn in that every scene was an excuse for gratuitous nudity, yet the accompanying violence and coarse language did not match the degree of the aforementioned sex appeal. As such, the film came off very lame and uninspired.

That being said, the in-the-snow bits were awesome, and all of Marco's parts (especially right before death) are just fantastic. Viel (sp?) obviously spent money and effort on higher production values, but the cheesiness of them gives credence to an overall lack of creativity and inability to 'sell' them as real.

All this considered, however, thanks for the awards and tell schwar I wish him luck at PMA!

Yeah, ever since I registered with Technorati to get exposure (which I got a LOT of, particularly from fellow university students - they put me in the running to receive a DSLR from the school to help make the blog more photo-centric) I started getting loads upon loads of spam; like tens of thousands of spam messages and comments, etc.

I'm sure there's a simple way to get rid of it, I just haven't bothered. If you snoop around my server you'll find there's hundreds of pages that I designed and uploaded and never really got around to launching or announcing. biggrin
