Valve has announced further details regarding the second annual Saxxy Awards.
Revealed earlier this week on GTTV, 2012 Saxxy entrants will use Valve’s Source Filmmaker to create films based on five categories, with winners being chosen for Best Comedy and Best Drama, and more.
“The Number of 3D animated short films produced in the few months since we released the SFM has blown away our expectations,” said Bay Raitt, designer at Valve. “With so many filmmakers sharing our world, tools and techniques, we think this year’s Saxxy’s will produce an incredible collection of animated shorts all made by- and for the community.”
Every winner will take home a Saxxy, and the overall winner will win a trip to Valve and possibly see their work aired on GTTV’s VGA Preshow in December.
During this week’s GTTV episode, Valve revealed a sneak peek at the cinematic trailer for CS:GO developed using the Source Filmmaker. The firm has now released the full video and you can watch it below.
You can find out more regarding the Saxxy Awards via the Source Filmmaker website.
