Announcing the winner(s) of the Disruptors hackathon!
Our panel of Hollywood industry insiders decided they liked aspects of two of the entries that they offered to give them both the win if they agreed to combine their ideas and use the concept of "Skin" and the storyline of "Extravagari". The two teams agreed to combine and work on a joint project! Congratulations to both teams for getting the $5,000 and industry support to make their idea real, and congratulations to all the teams that participated! Bonus: the winning team(s) also invited the two remaining teams to join them in producing the winning project!
