The Challenge for this trial was to create a movie working with black as your movie background color. The task was to maintain the black background throughout the bulk of your movie. The best 8 entries were selected and split into 2 groups. Thanks to everyone for participating and see you on the next time trial challenge on saturday.




Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Damn good Time Trial!

Black background eh? Seems like a pretty simple challenge compared to some others I've seen. Let's see what we've got!

Thirt3en's Entry

Wow, that was fantastic! The whole retro feel to it worked perfectly, as of course back in the 8 bit days a lot of games would just have black backgrounds to save memory, so it made sense to use a medley of classic games as your entry. I liked how you managed to transition between each game pretty seamlessly, and that music was just brilliant, really fitted in with the whole entry. Woooo!

Delitescent's Entry

Another videogame based entry eh? Again, this is a good idea for the entry and it works really well. Who doesn't love the bike scene from Tron? It looked so cool and of course was just a brilliant action scene. Loved the humor with the BLATANT MEGA MAN RIPOFF!! blurb, and the cool disc effect. Nice job!

Pako's Entry

This was pretty cool. An interesting little story, what was with the random Metroids?(Thats a video game reference in every entry so far) Still, the use of mainly white on the black background worked really well in a sharp contrast, expecially at the end when everything exploded into brightness. That music is great too, a nice slow build up to an epic finish!

TommyLM's Entry

I think this is the weakest entry in the Time Trial, which isn't to say it's bad. The style of this looked pretty camn cool, but it smacked of being a wee bit lazy in having the characters just sketched outlines. Audio is obviously fantastic being as it's The D, but it seems like you cut out the best part of the whole thing, with KG trying to show that anyone could make that song, and JB proving that it's still his. Also, LOL at making KG have hair, and JB being bald!

Overall, a really strong Time Trial here. Every entry manages to bring its own merits, and none of them are really duds. Great job!
