Filmaka (www.filmaka.com) with brand sponsorship from Cisco Systems are running a Digital Cribs film contest.
We have submitted a film to the contest to show how technology is used in someones 'crib', how it impacts their life and a brief tour of the house and the technology. "we suddenly got fantastic weather at the end of September" said Mark Brindle "perfect to do a more outdoor style film with Croyde local Mike Cotton (who runs Baggy Lodge).
This is a combo of the two films entered with a slightly elongated end - thanks to Doug Powell for the music - we used a couple of all-acoustic tracks from the new album The Iron Coast with a bit of extra ambience..".
UPDATE - 30th October 2008
Woohoo! We have been chosen as a Brand Winner in the Cisco/Filmaka Digital Cribs film competition.
Our 2 short films about Mike Cottons digital crib were selected by Cisco and will be posted on over 200 websites and showcased on their Digital cribs www.digitalcribs.com website. Cool.
"I'm very pleased with this result and will be looking out for more opportunities with competitions from Filmaka.com " said Mark Brindle from maniac films."..and the 7500USD prize money will be put to good use!"
In December 2008, this film made the Official Selection in the Newport Film Festival!
