What a great time in Barcelona !
Ok, the first day was a bit too eventful for me. Let's just say that it was a bad idea to take the subway with my wallet in my back pocket. Next time it will stay under my turban !
Once completly liberated of material worries, like money, Moritz Hirchenhain (Assistant Festival Director) took me to a restaurant where all the Bitfilm crew was waiting for us.
A very warm welcome, a long table with happy and passionated people. Of course, machinima and digital films were the main topic of the diner. But also music, since there was music lovers and also Plemo, a band from Germany, mixing techno rythms, traditional instruments and oldschool video games sounds.
At 7 pm began the award ceremony, the suspens did not last to long
because Machinima was the second category on the screen.
The audience saw the 3 top rated movies of each category.
This was the biggest Olibith I've ever seen !!!
I won the GEE Machinima Award !!!
So Thanks to all the people who supported "I'm Only Sleeping", going straight to my gnome heart, Thanks to Blizzard for this universe I can play my own way,
Thanks to the Beatles, keep up the great work,
I'm sure one day you're gonna be something big
and Thanks to the BitFilm Festival.
Results of the Festival
An intense moment and something to hang above my desk !
The trophy, the certificate and a 1500 Euros price !
Tim, Sylwia, Aaron, Stefanie and Lisa. Charming but too short moments on a crazy boat.
Oh the second price of the "Grand Prix Machinima 2007 du Festival du Jeux Vidéo" was delivered while I was in Spain. Lots of cool stuff, DVD's, gadgets, a Samsung SGH U600 phone (a splendid one, maybe a bit too fragile for a clumsy gnome),a USB memory key etc.
