Competition Winner: Animated J

April 10, 2012

We would like to again thank all the people who submitted entries to the Breathe the Beat competition. We received nearly 100 entries, from around the globe, and tens of thousands more people have watched and voted for their favourite routine.

Last week we announced the 30 videos that had been shortlisted by a panel, including Salah, based on a range of factors, including creativity, originality, performance quality, popularity, but, importantly, they were also judged on how well they used elements from the tutorials.

Unfortunately, there could only be one winner, who has been chosen by Salah himself. The winner
will get the chance to meet Salah, then watch him perform.

We are pleased to announce the winner of the Breathe the Beat competition is:

James Jimenez // MrAnimatedJ // USA

Congratulations to James from Salah, and everyone at Breathe the Beat!

Salah described James’ video as:

“A great video. It has a really nice solo, with a good wave and nice isolation. Really cool, I like the idea and nice mime and face…”

Salah has also given feedback on his 9 other favourite videos, which we will be published on the website tomorrow.
