yesterday we posted the BEST OF category winners, and today, here we are proud to announce the Hobbyist category winners!
for those who are just finding out about Big Shorts, here’s some background: the challenge had two categories, one for hobbyists and one for pros.
hobbyists were to use the song “Honey” by Sunbeam, the theme of family, and only ambient / nat sounds to create a 55 – 60 second film.
pros were to use the song “Building Houses” by Wesley Jensen, the theme of home, ambient / natural sounds and voice over or dialogue, including the line “my heart is” to create a 115 – 120 second film.
tonight at our livecast, in conjunction with the official release of SMAPP, we announced the winners! and we’re doing that here on the blog as well…
so onto the HOBBYIST winners…
