Best moving image of 2005 shortlisting

I’ve finally drawn up final categories and shortlist for the ‘advanced moving image’ that I think has been the most exciting for the year. In hindsight I should have done the shortlist first. But the comments on this post helped coalesce things and bring it down to a neat ten listing: ‘Deciding the best moving image of 2005‘.

  1. Best digital film
  2. Best music video
  3. Best machinima
  4. Most innovative in video gaming
  5. Best motion graphics
  6. Best interactive/installation
  7. Best live visuals by a VJ/generative filmmaker
  8. Best product
  9. MVP (Most valuable 2005 contribution from the above areas)
  10. Breakthrough artist of the year

Each category shortlist should now come thick and fast. Hopefully the auto-posting should work…
