Opera animation contest's first entry up on line.

Vancouver Opera's "Opera Bot" contest has it's first entry. As you may remember, VO started a contest in June to challenge people to create animated shorts of one of the operas of their upcoming season. While I thought (and still do,) that it's a great contest idea, with 10 days left in the contest, they now have their first entry (below). A group of students from The Art Institute in Denver, CO picked up their digital pens and created a short for Madama Butterfly. Will they be the only entry and take home all of the prizes? My guess is no - I imagine that we'll see quite a few more entries over the next week but we'll find out on November 1st. Head on over to this page to vote for your favourite once they start coming in.
