    Ok... First, I want to take a moment to again acknowledge our sponsors, and for this fest, I would especially like to acknowledge ABEL CINE for their amazing prize donation, coming in late and blowing the doors down with an 8,000 dollar prize donation of the MOVIEtube ST.

    All of our sponsors always come through with great prizes for the festivals, and they love to support the fests and the members. I hope you will consider them for your equipment purchases. We've always tried to maintain a friends and family atmosphere here and try to attract sponsors who will contribute to that vibe. We're very proud of the fact that we have such great sponsors on DVXuser who help to make this a better place.

    I'd also especially like to thank all of you who took the time to put an entry together and put your work and your selves out there for all to view, enjoy, and rip to shreds with their feedback

    This fest we had 28 first time entries, which is fantastic, and 9 of the top 20 placers were first time entries....

    So, without further ado.... First, I give you the top 10 (competiing) films as voted by the members: (* denotes first time dvxfest entrant)

    1. Collections Vol. 4: Mint in Box - JCVR *
    2. Placebo - pia12254
    3. Model/Photographer - Zak Forsman


    4. Lost at Sea - TheMacB
    5. Acceptance - Kyrre *
    6. Again to Return - Yeehawnow
    7. Ano Perdido - Delicia Producciones *
    8. Melody for Allyriane - jasonthewho
    9. Stupendous: The Movie - Armisiano
    10. Last Touch - Norm Sanders


    In addition to the top 3, we like to give awards out as well...

    Let's start with Best Newcomer.... This is to a non-top 3 placing film by a first time entrant.

    This film was one of the sleeper hits of the fest and I thought this dude just came out of nowhere.... Apparently, so did you all, since he recieved 5th overall in the festival:

    Best Newcomer: Acceptance - Kyrre *

    We are also giving away an award selected by the mod squad for Creative Vision. this award goes to:

    Creative Vision: Again to Return - yeehawnow

    In addition to this, we have some other goodies to give away. The first of which being 10 copies of DV Rebel's Guide book. These were selected at random from the non-finalist films using some code that Larry generated.

    Saint Anthony by John LaBonney
    Losers in Excess by MrKilloran
    Developed by The Student
    Voiced by AlexJeffery
    The Fishermen by tedynecula
    Lost Youth by Helferc
    I Understand You by eustace
    Take by preston
    The Split by Morox
    Second Chances by vnguyen972


    And, one more.... I have three copies of the "Sound for Film and Television" instruction DVD courtesy Wrightsville Beach Studios (Barry Green & David Jimerson).

    puckthemad had two entries in this festival, and they finished 15th, and 16th in the festival, but I think everyone would agree that he could use some help on his sound So, maybe with this DVD, we'll be seeing puckthemad in the finals next time...

    Here are your three winners of the "Sound for Film and Television" DVD:

    Keeper of the Lost, and Falling Up - puckthemad
    Lost Youth - helferc
    Gangs and Gangsters - lordambrai



    Wait... one more... I am giving a prize to Zak Forsman as stated in the "appreciation" thread created a little while ago. This is a special acknowledgment for Zak's contribution to LossFest as a member (not a film entrant). He championed the fest, and took the new outside promotion allowance and truly ran with it. Zak, you really elevated the fests, and we appreciate your presence here. thanks very much. As such, we feel you deserve more than just a pat on the back. You served as a fine example this fest and we want to reward you for that.

    For setting a great example, serving the fest to the fullest, and helping to elevate them:

    DVXuser Appreciation Award: Zak Forsman

    Ok. Those are your winners and award recipients of DVXuser's DVXFest 2009 - LossFest.

    You will notice that I have not named who gets what this time. I did a poll a while back, and there was a pretty overwhelming consensus that you would like for me to allow the top 3 to pick at least one of their prizes in order of placing...

    So, starting from the top, I will contact you via private message in order, and you may pick one unallocated prize. I will remove that from the list, and move to 2nd place, then the same for third. After the first three prizes have been handed out, I will award the rest of the prizes, and will announce who got what in the next post of this thread.

    Congratulations to all of you....

    Oh, yeah..... Next fest is..... BallerinaFest... wait... I mean....

    QUESTFEST. I will create a forum for it here momentarily. The rules will follow in a day or two as we are making some changes, and clarifying some things.

    MAKE SURE you read the rules for the next fest. Things will be quite a bit different in some respects and it will effect your eligibility. So, MAKE SURE TO READ THE RULES WHEN THEY ARE POSTED. THEY WILL BE DIFFERENT.

    I'm very proud of all of you, and would like to personally thank you for taking the time to create an entry and put it out there. That is what it is all about. Creating new work, learning, elevating yourself, and being elevated. Here's to many more great fests ahead
