2015 Passion Competition update A couple years ago we added a short story category to the competition.

We are happy to announce that Final Draft has agreed to sponsor this year's competition.

They have allowed us their Final Draft 9 software.

So, anyone up for trying to write a screenplay or script? How about just writing a short story of 3000-5000 words for your chance to get a copy.

2015 Passion Competition update Thanks for the questions Sensesfear.

To enter, there will be a separate thread in the 2015 forums section that will contain the rules and guidelines along with a sample entry post. You can look at the 2013 and 2014sections to see how it was done then. The 2015 section has the dates already posted.

As for the 2nd part, I have contacted Digimania (parent company of Muvizu) to see what we can work up.

2015 Passion Competition update Greetings.

We will once again have a Passion Competition in 2015. The initial forums section has been started with the dates and prize updates.

Over the next few weeks and into May/June we will be contacting potential sponsors and also those who have sponsored in the past to try to work up some great prizes.

What we would like to hear from you is what you would like to see in order to get the Muvizu community involved. All suggestions will be looked at and considered so please don't hold back. What has been the reason for not entering? Please let us know.

Video Hosting Site Greetings all.

There is a place called TMUnderground that can host your videos so you can get more exposure and more feedback on your creations. Other film makers, both professional and amateur, use this site to showcase what they have done and for general fun. You can get help from others in your projects through modding, voice acting, general knowledge and more. Check it out. TMU is also a sponsor of the Passion Competition.

Here is a promo video that one of the members, Rik Vargard, made to help promote the site.

The 2014 Passion Competition is here In case I forgot to mention, the deadline was extended until October 25th. That means you still have 7 days to submit something.

Sure would be nice to see something made with Muvizu in the competition for once.

Death by Jelly - scene 1 WIP I don't want anyone to take this the wrong way but I do find this conversation funny and a bit of deja vu. Moviestorm, another 2D animation program had a similar thread a while back, 'Is Moviestorm Dying'. Shortfuse, which made Moviestorm, which eventually just became Moviestorm Inc., had a decent size staff and went through many development phases. Sometimes the upgrades and content came slowly, other times it came weekly if not daily. The staff was downsized to where now it is maybe 3 or 4 people total in the company. Upgrades come very slowly. Even today, people wonder how long Moviestorm will last with a skeleton crew for a staff and slow updates.

Some modders have produced excellent addons which keep the program interesting while the MS staff trudge along. In fact, one of the former staffers actually started modding while still on staff and continues to create fabulous addons today long after he left.

Every program out there has it's high points and it's drawbacks including iClone. Some have gone the way of the transistor radio while others are trying to adapt. Slowly they are working to keep us with choices to help our creative juices flowing. The modding communities have always been central to keeping the programs going. Even though Lionhead Studios stopped support of The Movies years ago, the modding community has keep it a program of choice for many people and new users are finding it every day. The modding community has helped Moviestorm thrive (well, survive is a better word) and Reallusion encourages people to make their own content.

Muvizu is going through the same pains as all the rest. Are they doing it well enough to keep their users happy? Only time will tell.

Death by Jelly - scene 1 WIP Nice. I was waiting for the snake to turn into one of those Muvizu blob guys. LOL

Yeah, iClone can be tricky sometimes with movements. A great start though.

Passion Competition Greetings.

The Passion Competition will happen again this year. The website has been redesigned for easier viewing.

At the present time, we are working on what the theme will be this year along with who the sponsors will be and what the prize packages might consist of. The competition forums will be updated with new information as time goes on.

We do hope that there will be a showing from the Muvizu community this year as there are some really good film makers here.
