It's time for a competition. We haven't had one for ages. And, since it's Christmas, then we really ought to do one with a Christmas theme, shouldn't we? So, make a Christmas movie, then post it to the Moviestorm Web site and tag it "Christmas2009" so we can find it. Movies must be made wholly or partly with Moviestorm (or Photostorm), and can be of any length. You can treat the subject any way you like - a Christmas card, comedy, a Christmas message, or whatever. We're fairly broadminded here, so if you want to make your movie about Hanukkah, the winter solstice, or whichever midwinter festival you prefer, that's absolutely fine too.

Closing date is midnight UK time on December 23, so you have two weeks.

We'll then put up a short list of six or so on Christmas Eve, and you then get to vote for your favorite. The person with the most votes on New Year's Day will get 10,000 Moviestorm points, which is enough to get at least five content packs of your choice - more if you go for the smaller packs. You don't have to be a subscriber to use points.

You can use the Holiday pack if you want, but you don't have to.



Rules: just play nice and we'll all have fun.

Remember to tag your movie!

Nice one! Quick question, are we allowed to use our own custom props too? Or would you prefer moviestorm official only. I know you say it must be wholly or partly with moviestorm, but just wanna be clear where mods are concerned wink.gif

I would think that mods count, since you are still making the movie with Moviestorm.

I'm entering!

Yes, you can use your own mods.

I don't want to put a damper on this but it's been my experience that public voting determined contests and playing nice don't go together. Still I am tempted as I have something I'd love to make but I'm in production on another movie that I had hoped to finish by now so maybe my Christmas idea will have to wait until next year.

Gads! I'm neck deep in trying to get SQ12 done by Christmas. I'll see what I can put together in a couple hours.

Nice to have competitions back! laugh.gif

No, no reptor! You just sit back and relax. No need to worry about competitions etc....
(Hopefully, ticks one off the list wink.gif

I'm tempted to find time to do this...however...whenever I enter Christmas contests everyone usually gets very pissed off at me because I enter what they consider "inappropriate" Christmas material. Not that it's adult in nature but it's just that I don't usually do the Christmas mood thing and my Christmas stuff tends to be biting and satirical. Is that ok here? Because if it isn't I won't schedule for it.

That should be just fine, have you seen Overman's Christmas movie he made? People LOVE it (including myself)!

Yay!

I can't resist competitions, so my other other projects have to be put on hold again... unsure.gif

The best part of a competition with a theme that happens to be on a certain date, you know your deadline. And if you're making a movie, it's best not to be late regardless if it's going in a competition or not. smile.gif

So if you're late with it, it sucks double.

My submission: http://www.moviestor...p;vid_id=103155

It's actually just a sneak peak of my current project, but I don't think I'll be able to finish it all for Dec. 23, so I posted this instead.

Hope you enjoy smile.gif

After having a lot of problems with MS, I've been unable to make my intended Christmas movie. So that movie will have to wait until I can work smoothly in MS again.

So I uploaded "J-Hard's Christmas Album." (18+ only please)

Made originally for Yarmond's "Jolly St. Dick" but I made an extended version I planned on uploading anyway smile.gif
