    You can even view ALL VIDEOS from the 2013 Finalists

    I personally love the Viewer's Choice 2013's film; about a child who never really gets to take a break and play. Watch the video and you can really feel the strong emotions in this video. Really good!


    Right in the feels :'( 


    But, of course it doesn't always have to be super sappy and sad or a tear-jerking kinda video. Like this one below, it's super funny! hahah I loveee it and I actually find it really relatable since, haha I'm always late loll :D 


    100% Relatable lol!

    Or if you're more into like action/sci-fi/CGI kinda video, check out this one too, it's really out-of-the-box I would say. Haha! Would never have thought of this.. I guess that's why it won the Best Motion Picture 2012 Award. Good Job guys! Well deserved :) 

    Ayamm man!!! haha

    So what are you waiting for?!! 


    GOOD LUCK :)
