Watch the winning video from Elite Dangerous’ CTRL+ALT+SPACE 2017 short film competition

Last night, Elite Dangerous studio Frontier announced the winner of its second CTRL+ALT+SPACE short film competition. Participants were tasked with creating a video under four minutes using Elite’s camera suite; whether the entry was a trailer or film, the devs were “looking to be dazzled” and were judging on “creativity, originality, ingenuity, […] editing, narrative, and scene composition.”

And now they’ve got a winner: Turjan Starstone and his video dubbed Stardust, created as a tribute to his mother.

“I wrote this to honour the memory of my mother who passed away in March 2015,” he says. “Sadly my mother never got to see the misadventures of Cmdr Turjan. I know she would have been proud of them though. She would have been proud of ‘Stardust’ too, though I suspect she might have tutted at me for being sentimental, because like I say in the video, my mother was indeed a formidable lady.”

He’ll take home in-game rewards along with a video capture card, headset, keyboard, and gaming mousepad. Beautiful work, Turjan. Enjoy it, everyone.

I know someone who can dazzle ya, Frontier.

That’s all I got really. Video was nice, but I didn’t get the feels because I am a cold dead husk.
