2011 Harb40 Passion Competition

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, machinimators of all ages, once again it is time for us to embark on the journey through people's minds and creativity and see what their ideas of passion are. So, without further ado, I give you the:

2011 Harb40 Passion Competition.

2011 Passion Competition Rules and Guidelines

Ethics also known as moral philosophy, is a branch of philosophy that addresses questions about morality -- that is, concepts such as good and evil, right and wrong, virtue and vice, justice, etc.

Good versus evil contradiction is the eternal story of mankind. The universe is made of oppositions, contrasts, conflicts and dilemma. The stories of God and Satan highlight this. There are also examples such as police forces versus criminals, arguments between husbands and wives (the wife is always right, right?) and even land owners versus city expansion (eminent [imminent] domain).

The task at hand will be to make a film showcasing the struggle between GOOD and EVIL, RIGHT and WRONG.
