Movie Jam 1 Winners 2011-01-31 15:58:47 Reply

The January Movie Jam got off to a bumpy start Friday night, with too many people in chat and an incorrect computer clock causing 7pm to catch us by surprise. It still managed to be AWESOME! CHECK OUT THE ENTRIES.

I would like to apologize to the writers from the written portion of the event. There was a change of course towards shorter stories after a lot of guys had already put time into their submissions, followed by a really messy selection process Friday night, and a lot of comments about the number of bad stories... In the end, lots of funny cartoons were made and I hope everyone had fun. Sorry to anyone who didn't get to see their stories get animated and especially sorry to anyone who did get to see their stories animated but didn't like the results. In the future, I think it's a given that we can't take the writing too seriously if animators will only have 48 hours to make it into movies. We still plan to have a larger-scope event, where winning stories and scripts are commissioned to be made into movies by some of NG's top talent.

TEAMS: Please be sure to add the writer as a Portal Buddy, and when he accepts, co-author him with at least 20% rev share.

WRITERS: Check this page to see if you have a buddy invite from the team that animated your story!

To keep the machine moving, WE'VE ALREADY SELECTED WINNERS.

1st - 3rd ($130, $100, $70 store credit split amongst teams)

THAT'S RIGHT, we totally snubbed Egoraptor, Oney and TomaMoto. I sure hope they win at something else some time! You can find their amazing shark movie on the MOVIE JAM PAGE.

Store credit will be applied once authors are credited. MindChamber would like to give an honorable mention:

Tomorrow is the start of voting for the Best of January, so check your account page tomorrow to see if you're on the voting panel.

If you're around this Friday, we'll be browsing the portal LIVE from 3-6pm EST, looking for gems from the past week. I'll make a post when we start, in case it's earlier.

Finally, upload your larger-sized User Picture and User Icon if you haven't done so already - they will show up on those pages if you have. These images will be presented at full size when the redesign launches.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Most of them were really great! "Encounter" and "Pico and the Dandelions" were both funny.

Can we try to do a better time of avoiding letting spammers/teams that aren't serious about this? I was a little upset that the team that had my story was exactly this, a group of spammers who really had no intention of actually participating.

It's not a big deal, but it'll help things run smoother if you give the animators a little background check first. I'd be willing to help you out with this when the next Jam comes up.

Proper Raptors was amazingly funny and probably my favourite entry. Didn't watch the other winners yet, they belong to the group of 3 - 4 videos I didn't watch yet. Congrats to all of the winners anyway.

Also "The Choice" and "John finds his Dog" were pretty funny movies. I thought one of them would enter the top three.

I was in the portal watching all the new Movie Jam toons come through and a good deal of them were really good. I am content with the winners and I hope they enjoy their prize money.

I think the results of this contest were nice, I have seen some funny entries yesterday. Proper Raptors was pretty good and I personally liked that Shark movie from Egoraptor. I expected the latter to at least win something, but apparently you guys decided to snub it. Oh well, you must've had your reasons.

Congrats to all the winners.

I second this motion. The animated version of my torn apart story was somewhat offensive, I originally took the collab thing serious and was let down. I hope for better results next time around.

Also good job on arranging the first ever movie jam Tom, I think you've done a pretty good job considering it's the first movie jam ever here in NG. Must've taken you a lot of hard work and preperation getting those teams to pick a story then arranging them later to make the final product. Kudos to you good sir.

I think the only way to ensure participation from teams ... is an entrance fee.

Even if that fee isn't monetary... like, perhaps, your ability to ever participate in another jam?

Just a thought.

Or have to have a certain batting average or at least one trophy or something as proof that they've made content before and with effort.

To be honest, I knew this writing jam thing was going to fail.


When I got outside, the purple fog was spreading. I covered my nose and mouth, and ran home.

Much <3 to Team Wienerbarf, but I really think they got outclassed. (Most) Everyone did really good, and I can't wait until the next Jam. Good going, guys.

Hopefully inb4 lois

Yea i agree. It might be worthwhile to keep some sort of naughty list. So that if someone bails on 3 jam's they are blacklisted. This was particularly frusterating in my last game jam KEVIN.

all in all it was fun, it was a little chaotic, but I kind of expected the first one to be a little rough around the edges.
