I really liked John Griffith's "The Stronger" over all the other motion comics. It kept the integrity of the artwork and infused an exciting 3D feel throughout. He seemed to be able to map the 2D drawings onto a 3D surface without distorting the original images. I did get dizzy during that one spinning section though and would tame the action there. I also liked Pryce Dunclaf's "All for One" but feel he got carried away with some of the non-stop camera work. He also lost parts of the original art during the annihilation battle. He did however incorporate wonderful scenes of acting missing in other's works.I thought Mike Peraza's "Nova Mojo" had a great feel throughout and felt drawn into his story telling. I would have given him my top spot but thought his 3D add-ons were simply that. They didn't fit and were jarring. I did enjoy the lighting mood and music that he added to give a cinematic experience. Eric Hunn's "The Worst Part of Getting Your Memories Back" had very nice moments, particularly during his beginning sequence. His credits were simply striking and hands down the most professional. He also did a solid job with character movement throughout.Justin Acree's "Nova: All For One" also had good areas but again interjected a jarring 3D helmet and a misplaced homage to 2001 Space Odyssey with the rock tumbling. Overall, a tremendous amount of thoughtful work by all of these finalists.

Griffith's Wolverine video was great, but I think I have to go with Dunclaf's Nova. That was fantastic. All of them were good, but Hunn's Wolverine seemed a little rushed, while Acree's Nova was entirely too slow. I liked what he did with the "helmet cam" view but the Worldmind voice was just WAY too slow. It just seemed a little too contrived. Like he was trying to get it to sound like HAL from "2001: A Space Oddysey". Hands down Dunclaf's is the best. It wasn't rushed, but it was constantly moving. Give this guy a job.
