a new round of The Fantasy Collective is opening its door tomorrow! So here the cute chains from Noodles, you’ll find at the event. The outfit is part of the amazing collection by Luas for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival.
It was only a few days into the new year and already deadlines, thoughts, worries, and anticipations were piling up. It wasn’t so much the number of things, but the subject matter which added weight and turned the molehills into mountains.
There was a lot to think about going into this new year. I carry on things as before, or perhaps, now, it was time to try something different. Do I like who I was last year? And who said that a change in the calendar date automatically made things different?
I original plan had been to write something spectacular and hard hitting for my first entry of the year. A real zinger. Put into words all the things that would spark hope and light fires under those that need it. I had spent a great deal of time writing, and erasing. Writing, and erasing, and even scribbling down oddities hoping it would find cohesiveness all by itself. But nothing stuck.
So for the first time – in a long time – I don’t have anything. I think I’m placing too much pressure upon myself to start the year off on a high note when what I really need to do is relax and not plan out the next year of my life. When the words won’t flow, perhaps it’s a sign saying to take a breath.
11 days to go till the deadline for entries for both art and film, and we are graced by a remarkable film by Sevio which shows us the strength of the human spirit, and how through virtual ability we pursue the impossible!
You may interpret the theme ‘Pursue Impossible’ as you see fit, however the average viewer would need to be able to appreciate how you fit this theme (alternatively, please indicate in the notes that accompany your film how it fits). Your machinima must be made specifically for this challenge, and this should be indicated in the opening credits ‘For The University of Western Australia’s MachinimUWA VIII: Pursue Impossible’ (or end credits if it works better creatively). You do not have to film on the UWA sims, however this of course will be appreciated, and there is a Special UWA Prize which will be made available to a film which starts at the same point as the UWA Pursue Impossible Video, at Winthrop Clock Tower.
