The Winners of the First Annual No-Budget Film Contest

Despite only getting two entries, this year was a tough race. The two are quite evenly matched, though fundamentally different. They actually represent what I was looking for when I came up with the contest, and so I'm happy with the results.

Because they are so evenly matched, the second place winner will also be getting third place.

So, without further ado, here are the results:

(b) I.T.C.H by Matthew Allen & The Skeleton Project

This is a great film, and although it drags slightly in the beginning, the plot and the visuals are top-notch. From what I understand, there is a higher resolution version available.

Zoetope by Alexa Burrell

This film is shorter, but the cinematography is great, as is the music. The dearth of lines allowed for better acting. Although a plot is hinted to, it is not clear.

Congratulations to both our winners.
