Welcome to Pinhead Project 9.  Today we launch a new project which will be a little different from past projects.  We think the concept will appeal to not only iClone lovers, but also our other loyal fans who have been with us from the beginning of the Pinhead Projects, which are approaching 10 years in 2016.

We shall call this project “Comic Relief”.  As per the video above, the idea is to create a story using still comic-like scenes.  Each scene can depict a situation that Pinhead has gotten himself into.  This is where those Indigo Lovers can take advantage of their superior renders.  Facial expression will be very important to get the emotion and mood of the scene across.  Lighting will come into play…is  it daytime, nighttime, etc. And of course the music will also be key to getting your audience to identify with your story.



Each scene can have pan and zoom used to emphasize the portion of the scene that your character is speaking in.  But no movement of your characters. You can overlay special effects, such as candle flickering as above, or rain coming down if it is outdoors.. Use the effects to add more interest and intrigue to your scene.

Speech bubbles can be added in any creative way, but there can be no actual speech.  We could allow the sound of a cat purring or an animal noise or anything that could be considered a “sound effect” but no spoken dialogue.


Rules are very simple:

  • Story about anything Pinhead;
  • Must be a minimum of 3 minutes and 8 Panels;
  • Please no more than 5 minutes - you want us to watch the whole thing;
  • Each frame can have up to 3 special effects, using either iClone or post-editing software;
  • (Pan and zoom not considered an effect).


Contest starts Nov 11, 2015 and closes on Feb 15th, 2016.



Our thanks to the following companies for providing prizes for our project.

Project is mainly promoted by iClone users in the Reallusion community, although other software entries are allowed and encouraged.
