The Hobnox Evolution2 Hot Picks

September 19, 2008

Hello my dear friends,

my website Hobnox.com has a contest up and running worth $100.000 for projects in music, film and culture.

It’s called the Evolution2, since it’s the second time we’re doing this. This is what the party for the finals of Evolution1 looked like.

I have compiled some great entries to the film category for your convenience. Just surf by and vote for them if you want to support them.

Flying Around The World One crazy guy doing one crazy high-flying Kung-Fu kick all over the world.

Suzuki Tsunami A hommage to the works of Genndy Tartakovsky (Dexter’s Laboratory, Power Puff Girls) by a malysian artist.

The Dovepeople A futuristic vision for an ages old myth.

First Impact Looks like Cloverfield but was made in 2004.

Enjoy

Hobnox Evolution2 coming up!

June 11, 2008

Those who attended will surely remember Hobnox’s Evolution Party in Berlin this february. I recommend my post to get you up to date.

Well that Evolution was fun so let’s see what the next Evolution has in store for us: $ 90.000 in prize money will be split up between the winners in the three categories music, film and culture. All you need to do is register at Hobnox.com and upload your media files. The winners of Evolution 1 are Boombaker (music), Missy Magazine (culture) and Philantrop (film).

The second time around I expect even better entries, since we opened the contest for the USA and the rest of the world.

So now you have no excuses left. Get your shit together and become a part of the Hobnox Evolution2!

P.S.: There’s one easy way to win it all: Get everyone you know to vote for you!!!

The Hobnox Evolution Festival is over!

March 3, 2008

I hope the little trailer that I posted above can give you a glimpse of the greatest launch party any start-up ever had. If I’d tell you what the budget was you’d want to have us organize all of your parties. Don’t ask anyone about band catering. I think the budget was about € 250 for snacks and drinks for three bands (one of them consisting of 20 people). At least Ministry Of Sound newcomer Calvin Harris had his personal bottle of Jim Beam which I’m sure he didn’t finish, coz an acquaintance of mine found it and finished it off. Cheers!

This dude who’s having his bow tie chewed on (I love the sexual connotation in this pic) was the best dressed man of the night. No-one else showed up in a tuxedo.

This fine young lady deejayed in the VIP. She mixed classic country with David Lynch soundtracks and Polka. The VIPs loved it. By the way, those same VIPs drank their whole free beer budget by 10 pm (doors opened at 8 pm).

These two gents were a big part of the free booze killing squad. Jury members Tyron Ricketts (Word Cup, Soko Leipzig) and JayBo aka Monk (Irie Daily, Style 100).

Notic Nastic were one of three finalists in the category “music”. They didn’t win but definitely had an interesting visual concept.

I told you the place was packed. Around 2000 people showed up at the Tresor which led to the uncomfortable situation that some of the VIPs had to stand in line outside of Tresor because a traffic jam clogged up the staircase from the entrance all the way up to the VIP-lounge.
