Announcing the WIRED Culturazzi!

Congratulations @TheCosmickRick! We pronounce you the WIRED Culturazzi.

THE CHALLENGE: Make a movie on Xtranormal. Tweet @WIREDInsider a link. Rotten Tomatoes will be on our judging panel. 

THE WINNER: @TheCosmickRick’s The Spectral Ox:

NOTES FROM THE JUDGES: For those of you who are unfamiliar with Xtranormal, it’s a site that hosts text-to-speech based computer animated videoclips. Their tagline is, “If you can type, you can make movies,” so we thought it would be a good opportunity for clever Culturazzi out there to make short films with a low barrier to entry. 

One Xtranormal film, Sleeping with Charlie Kaufman by J Roland Kelly, premiered at the Litte Rock Film Festival and was shown at The Rome International Film Festival in Rome, Georgia. 

We thought The Spectral Ox made the best use of the medium. To see other Xtranormal films, check out the site here
