This Fantasy Faire saw the first awarding of the Wafflies – a series of special awards to machinima shot within the Fairelands.
There were three categories: Livestreaming Factual Fictional
Awards were given by the Jury, with a special People’s Choice award, voted for by the public (using RFL kiosks to register their votes).
Attendees wore their best Film Awards costumes, and there was an After Party in the Hall of the Golden Stag on Mythspire Ridge, dj’d by Aoife Lorefield. The hosts for the awards were Chantal Harvey and Saffia Widdershins.
Today, Tuesday May 3rd, is the last chance to enter the First Film Festival. The deadline is midnight SLT.
You can enter three different categories of film:
Category 1: Fiction (5 minutes) A narrative story, set in the Fairelands
Category 2: Factual (5 minutes) This could be a documentary, a tour of a region, a special Faireland event and – if the creator is willing – perhaps a short interview.
Category 3: Livestream (10 minutes) We are asking people who wish to enter this category either to edit a ten minute sequence from the livestream, or to give a timeframe of 10 minutes from the longer livestream.
Tomorrow, Sunday May 1st, Fairelands Media will be premiering the first episode of its opening production – Harland Quinn and the Omega Hex.
And here to give you a taste of it is our trailer …
When a lethal, magical anomaly out of the pages of legend begins wreaking havoc all across the Fairelands, it falls to a mismatched band of heroes to stop it before it’s too late. A Dark-Elven femme fatale, an erudite librarian, a rough-and-tumble sanitation worker, and a hard-boiled Private Detective will have to overcome their differences if they’re going to solve the enigma of the Omega-Hex, and of a mysterious scientist who may not be what she seems.
