And the Muvizu Christmas Treasure Hunt winners are...

by Muvizu_Admin in Competitions

Hello fellow Muvizuers! Team Muvizu hopes that you all had a fantastic Christmas and New year! We hope 2012 was a good year for everyone but we hope 2013 is even better.

From December 1st to 24th 2012, Muvizu had fans racking their brains trying to solve the Christmas Treasure Hunt. The Treasure Hunt appeared on our homepage as an advent calendar with hotspots made live daily. Some hotspots linked to an animation treat, some linked to Muvizu videos containing hidden clues - clues that formed a code that needed to be cracked.

The code pieced together as the 11 digits of a YouTube URL that sent you to a video which gave you a set of instructions.

Code breakers were instructed to create a cartoon version of themselves inside Muvizu 3D waving and wearing something red. The first person to find all the clues, figure out the code the quickest and follow the instructions won an amazing prize - a desktop animation studio.

We are very proud to announce that Trikolad came first place with the quickest email following all of the rules and winning top prize -

* A top spec Alienware laptop.

* Sony Vegas Pro video editing software

* Olympus SZ-31MR digital camera capable of shooting film in 1080p.

* Blue Microphone Yeti to plug into the laptop capable of recording high quality audio.

* Panasonic RP-HC700 headphones in order to hear said high quality audio.

* A Kindle Fire loaded with animation reference books.

* And more!

We also have 2 runners up who were picked by lucky draw - Fman00 and Zerohero have managed to grab second and third place and have won:

* Sony Movie Studio Platinum video editing software.

* Blue Microphone Yeti to plug into laptop capable of recording high quality audio.

* A Kindle Fire also loaded with animation reference books.

*And more!

To everyone who took part and to our 3 very lucky winners thank you for participating in the Treasure Hunt and especially for being part of the Muvizu community. And thanks for making 2012 a great year for us!

I wonder what creative animating minds have in store for us in 2013.

The Muvizu Team

    • Curiously, I found 4 correct codes around Dec 21th because for the 11th digit, I tested abcd... ABCD.... 123...:
