Online Filmmaking Website Xtranormal Starting a "Festival"


In December, BW wrote about, a website that allows anyone to make digitally animated movies just by typing dialogue and actions into text boxes and selecting from pre-existing characters and settings.

In conjunction with search engine Bing, is running an animated short contest on the site. In addition to a cash prize, the winner will have his or her likeness made into an avatar for use by Xtranormal filmmakers.
