Full disclosure by Selby Evans/Thinkerer Melville

In this blog, I will embed selected videos and report on art submitted to these challenges .  For videos, I favor YouTube.  Vimeo deletes videos sometimes, apparently because they do not get enough hits.  I have not known YouTube to do that.  For that reason, I only embed videos from YouTube on this blog. 
I will also be a judge in the challenges.  I see no conflict of interest in this but will drop out of the judging if anyone points out a credible issue .  My selections for inclusion in this blog will be based on what I think is of special interest to my readers; my judging for the challenges will be based on different criteria.

      The theme is 'TRANSCENDING BORDERS.' Artists & filmmakers can interpret the theme as they see fit. Whether transcending borders between time and space, past and present, one nation and another, one language and another, a culture or civilisation or any other of the innumerable borders that present themselves as we navigate our lives. You the artist... You the machinimatographer...You decide.
