I am busy writing a review for the magazine. First of all, I want to applaud SNEA for bringing this to the Community Theatre. Although I would have preferred to see videos about Home activities made by Home users, this was definitely a step up in recognizing that there is a mature audience in Home who can appreciate a cultural event that is not directly tied to a game.
As anticipated, when I was there, about half the audience was very attentive and appreciative ("interesting composition and use of color") while the other half were being rude, argumentative, and juvenile ("wut dis chit?"). But, that's the charm of Home isn't it - that it presents a cross-section of cultures side-by-side in a virtual reality where the only visual clues to identity are pixels.
When will the results of the vote be revealed? That will be an important part of the story.
And where did you get the idea to do this, Glass Walls?
Have you considered music videos by Home users for a show of this type? Or a video of an Art Show by the Homelings or Imagine! or Bit Journal?
Whatever you can PM me for the article I am writing will be deeply appreciated. I think this is a big step forward.

Thank you all for voting. Just to make sure, did you follow the directions properly and include the tags and hashtags "@DFFest" and "#PSHome" along with your vote hashtag? (Wow, Twitter is complicated!)
When the DFF tallies up the votes and informs me, I'll make sure you all know which one was the PlayStation Home Audience Choice Award winner.
