We would like to congratulate all the finalists for creating such great films. We would also like to thank the SHOOOT Awards for presenting us with such a great award!

The Grand Prize includes a trip to Japan and a pass to attend SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 in Yokohama! So we are off to Japan! We will also be doing a presentation on machinima and Shelf Life on two days at the conference. What an amazing award!

Of course I am a bit nervous about the presentations since they have slotted 30 minutes, but we can talk about movies, games, coffee and mahcinima for that long easily, I hope! :)


  1. Congrats and have a great time in Japan! What a fantastic award that is!

    Good luck with the presentation, too! Wish I could be there.

  3. Thanks! :) A bit nervous about the presentations but I bet it will end up being a lot of fun. Working out the details of the trip now.

    And yeah I really hope everybody watches the other finalist because their work is great.

  4. Congratulations again! We were proud to be part of the competition. ;)

    Have fun in Japan!! :D
