I’m preparing an unscientific list of the best moving image of the year. The criteria being impact, innovation, inventiveness and all-round visual awesomeness. It might help if it has a clever, or at least a capsule narrative, too!
I am often accused of having an over-analytical nature, and to confirm this I’m first musing on the categories I should include. This is a start:
- Best digital film
- Best music video
- Best machinima
- Best motion graphics
- Best mobile viewing
- Most innovative in video gaming
- Best interactive/installation
- Best VJ/live visuals
- Best generative/realtime film
- Best software/hardware
- MVP (Most valuable 2005 contribution from the above areas)
- Breakthrough artist of the year
I’m taking suggestions on what should be refined/changed? And also on suggestions in these categories. Please also take this as an opportunity to stop lurking, and start commenting!
I’ll draw up some shortlists soon based on my own, and any recommendations I receive.
Maybe make 10. broader. Like Best product to take in DVDs and other things to consume. Software and hardware sounds to narrow.
I don’t know about some of these categories but i have some ideas
Best digital film — king kong, this too blockbuster?
Best music video — the denial twist white stripes
Best machinima — need to check machinima.org!
Best motion graphics — ? i like the sony balls thing or the hewlett packard
Best mobile viewing — 24 mobisodes
Most innovative in video gaming — We Love Katamari
Best interactive/installation — ?
Best VJ/live visuals — EBN (the return)
Best generative/realtime film — EBN (these 2 sound samey)
Best software/hardware – if it is a product
MVP (Most valuable 2005 contribution from the above areas)
Breakthrough artist of the year- jamie lidell
Yeah change to product, I would go with the Directors Label, Romanek.
realtime film and live visuals maybe combine?
best dig film, Appleseed,
video game innovative – Lumines
Sony Balls is real not rendered.
I like the suggestions so far, definitely some things to change.
When i post the refinement list I bring 8and9 —
Best VJ/live visuals
Best generative/realtime film
– – together (Best VJ/generative artist). and change 10 to best digital creativity product.
Any more nominations for best digital film? Currently for best digital film I’m erring toward this shortlist:
Immortel, Innocence Ghost in the Shell 2, Appleseed, King Kong
Best machinima – that french democracy one (for relevancy)
hexstatic master view! for vj
french democracy for machinima
chemical brothers galvanise for MV director adam smith as breakthrough artist
i think more about the others.
Music videos I LOVE:
bjork triumph of the heart
lcd soundsystem tribulations
