Submit your Machinimas for 24h Berlin!September 03, 2008 12:11 pm
Attention all budding machinima makers! Twinity is supporting 24h Berlin, a major multimedia event documenting the real city of Berlin for 24 hours (6:00 am – 6:00 am CET) on 5 September 2008. Eighty professional HD camera crews will be filming in the real city of Berlin for 24 hours, along with anyone else in Berlin who wants to participate.
Twinity members can participate in the 24h Berlin project by shooting in Virtual Berlin on 5 September 2008. When you are finished editing your machinima, upload your video to the project’s website (www.24h Berlin.tv). Twinity members and other visitors to the 24h Berlin website will rate the uploaded videos. All videos from Berlin will be considered for the official TV program, which will be broadcast exactly one year after the shooting on 5 September 2009.
Contribute to this portrait of Berlin by creating a one to three minute video in Twinity’s Berlin! After you upload your video to www.24hberlin.tv, please send us the link to email@example.com. Everyone who participates gets 1.000 globals!
