Everyone loves a good YouTube video, right? Well, following the success of our last machinima competition it's fair to say many people love to make them too. To that end, we will be launching the Orb of Oculus camera tool next week to allow even more creativity for RuneScape filmmakers, which should come in handy for those looking to enter the competition!
The first machinima competition was pretty straightforward: make a short machinima using RuneScape. This time, however, we're introducing a theme to spice things up a bit. We want you to make us an advert for something within RuneScape!
It could be anything from a location to a shop, a monster or an item, or even a whole skill. Alternatively, you may want to advertise a RuneScape business (e.g. your restaurant or wrestling federation) or a tournament you have planned. In short, you can advertise just about anything, so long as it exists within RuneScape.
The winner will receive lifetime membership to RuneScape, a tour of the studio to meet the people who make RuneScape happen, and an invitation to a Jagex event to be held later this year. The event is very much in the planning stages at the moment, but we'll be sure to elaborate as the event takes shape. Meanwhile, four runners-up will each receive lifetime RuneScape membership.
If all of this has got your creative juices flowing and you think there’s a place for you in Gielinor's advertising agency, then you should visit this dedicated competition thread for more details, competition rules, J-mod support and an FAQ. Alternatively, you can see the rules and an example advertisement made by last year's winner, Excl, on our YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/runescape.
We’ll be posting a selection of entries on the channel throughout the course of the competition too, so if you love your machinima, show your support of the RuneScape video-making community by subscribing to the channel and telling them!
The best of luck to you all. May the competition commence!
