iPi Soft Launches Filmmaking Contest

iPi Soft launches a monthly filmmaking contest with winners to receive a free license of iPi Motion Capture software.

MOSCOW, RUSSIA – iPi Soft, developers of markerless motion capture software solution iPi Motion Capture, announced the iPi Soft Filmmaking Competition. Geared to motion capture filmmakers and animators, the monthly contest is designed to shine a spotlight on the innovative ways both creative professionals and amateurs are relying on motion capture techniques to create compelling digital entertainment content.

Each month the iPi Soft team will select one winning entry based on the quality of the film submission. Entries must be created in part using either the free trial version or a full version of the iPi Motion Capture software. Winners will receive 1 (one) free license of the iPi Motion Capture software (Standard Edition), plus a year of support. 

For iPi Soft Founder and Chief Technology Architect Michael Nikonov, the contest offers not only a chance for budding filmmakers and animators to find a wide audience for their creativity, but it also gives the company a look at the many inspiring ways filmmakers are using iPi Motion Capture and how the software can be improved to better suit their needs.

“It’s amazing to see how our software, in the hands of talented and imaginative filmmakers, is being used,” Nikonov said. “The submissions are also helpful as we design new features and enhance our current offerings.”

This November, iPi Soft is sponsoring the 2012 Machinima Expo, celebrating the best of world machinima online. The event takes place on the Machinima Expo site and Second Life simultaneously on November 16-18.
