Winners


The results are in! Our 4 judges have scored each submission out of 30, with the final total being an average of all 4 judges scores plus 3 added points for following the extra criteria. There were a total of 17 submissions fighting for placement this time around, with a few being very divisive among judges. Overall our judges were VERY impressed by the amount of work and skill on display, and we're looking forward to the next competition starting up THIS SATURDAY. Congratulations to everyone who placed, it was very close between a lot of them, sometimes being separated by less than a fraction of a point.

Judges


Our 4 judges this competition are myself, CRAZY JAY, Winston - the artist for Max Games Studios, and our special guest judge and ancient mythical beast Terkoiz! A big thank you to the other judges for helping this all come together.

Wow. Results are already out? It hasn't been very long since the competition ended. Congrats to everyone who participated! I would've finished mine if stuff hadn't come up. But you can already count me in for the next competition.

2nd place!!?? Do you know how happy i am!?? *cries*. The late nights i did....staying up till 4am...the sleepless nights were all not in vain. I'm soooo happy. I wish i had started my entry earlier to be fair. I would've increased the quality tenfold. So the next competition, I'm gonna take it up a notch!!


Judge 4 hates me </3

Hahaha hates me too...but not as much as you lol

I was so surprised by the result, I got wide awake this morning. Normally I would've woken up 2 hours later. By the way Barthimo, I won't tell, don't worry ;)

Agree with Zero, that was a really nice trailer Jeff. Would be nice to see one for each major competition if it's possible.
Looks like amazing work all round. Congratulations to the winners and everyone else for participating.

A couple of those scores look pretty suspect. One judge gave Fordz 12 while the others gave 26/21/26. And another judge gave Zero 10 while the other judges can 24/24/26. I mean if we're talking out of 30, the difference between 26 and 10 is 87% vs 33%, which seems far beyond any reasonable leeway for subjectivity. Seems to me like a couple of these judges need to re-evaluate their scores if they're that far off of the other judges. And judge 4 seems to be judging to a different standard than the other judges with consistently lower scores.

But that's just my 2 cents. I hate seeing such extreme score variability in the movie industry too. The game industry does a far better job of producing somewhat standardized scores.

As I said there were a couple of divisive entries. That's kind of the down side of having individuals with their own perspectives judging a competition based on something partially subjective. Sometimes you'll come across something that one of the judges seriously disagrees with everyone else on and it's reflected in their final score. We could have fallen down a rabbit hole of statistics and maybe thrown away scores that were too far out the median such as in your examples, but ultimately this is an informal competition with time restraints so I decided an average would do well enough to balance out these differences. In practice, I am letting the contestants decide if they agree with this or not. I'm open to hearing feedback on this especially when we get to December and every release is out for subjective comparison. Just keep in mind we're not reviewing Hollywood movies here, this is mainly for fun and practice (and ca$h).

Quick update:

Today we released two entries at once as a double feature and totally not because I messed up the dates on YouTube, which means everything is moving forward a week! Main page has been updated with the new dates

Jeff

Another change up in the schedule is happening. We're going to be releasing the Pokemon Go animation tomorrow morning due to the recent release of the new Pokemon games. The rest of the animations will come out in order. I will update the main page to reflect this change so it's clear.
