Thanks again to everyone who took part in our MOOvie Competition! We had a lot of fun watching your films – and it sounds like you had a lot of fun making them. From camera operators, to directors, to the movie stars themselves, the standard was high – and the judging was tricky.
Thanks then also goes to our esteemed, independent judging panel;

1st Prize: MOOvie Mania: Mooseum Mayhem, by The McIntyres
A wonderful stop-frame animation, with dramatic music to match the very dramatic story-line! This video took us back to our childhoods, reminding us of lazy summer afternoons, playing in the sunshine.
2nd Prize: MOOcards NY underground, by Mo Riza
A great little film, shot on the New York city subway. MiniCards were taken back to visit the origin of the photographs printed upon them.
3rd Prize : Life as a graphic Designer, by Marina
With two fine actors in starring roles, this film rang true with many. (Meanwhile, the non-designers coo-ed over the stars themselves!)
1st: PW98: Decorating a Netbook, by John Arnold
An absorbing tutorial, easy to watch, and resulting in a rather spectacular creation! We’d like to try this ourselves, but think we might cheat by numbering our stickers first…
2nd: One Million MOO’s, by Geoff
A fantastic parody of our own MiniCard holder ad, this made everyone in MOO Towers laugh. (We too tried to come up with a catchy equivalent to ‘Hold, Slide, Push’ – but never quite got there).
3rd: Making a Mosaic Frame, Andy Piper
Andy kicked this competition off with his MiniCard Frame tutorial. Simple and effective, we loved the pacing, and the fact it’s subtitled, for those sneaking a look in the office.
