Winners of maddogs Colombian Multimedia Challenge
Paw Prints: Writings of the maddog
Well, it took me a while to do it, but I have posted two videos from the maddog Colombian Multimedia Challenge I gave at Campus Party in Bogota.
Pablo Camacho was the winner, and I think his video is very good, both from creativity and technically, given the fact he had only three days to do the whole thing, and he was using tools with which he was not completely familiar.
A second entry that was very good was from Julia Guneth Avila Rincan, and shows an animation.
Both of these are under the Creative Commons V3.0 Attribution license.
For a lot of the contestants this was their first time using Free Software tools, and the first time a lot of them had heard of Creative Commons and even thought about the implications of licensing their video works.
The fact that the contestants learned about the use of Free Software multimedia tools, Creative Commons and understand media licensing more, made the effort of putting on the Challenge worthwhile.
Thanks again to Telefonica, Campus Party, and Trinity Audio Group for sponsoring this event.comments powered by Disqus
