THE SFX ART CHALLENGE #2: Joss Whedon Genderbending

Show off your creative skills to the world by giving Buffy, Angel, Mal Reynolds and co a sex change!


Last month, we challenged you lot to demonstrate your artistic creativity by sending us your zombified pictures of Doctor Who characters zombified. The results were seriously cool. So: time to for us to set you another challenge. We're calling this one Joss Whedon Genderbending . Don't worry Joss, it doesn't involve any kind of surgical operation... Rather, we'd like you to recast Joss's TV series and movies, but using actors from other Whedon productions, whilst - and here's the important bit - using male actors instead of female ones, and vice versa.

So, for example, it could be a picture of Nathan Fillion as Drusilla (in a dress? Well, it's entirely up to you...). Or Eliza Dushku as Spike. Or the entire cast of The Avengers gender-switched using Joss regulars (hmm, I'm picturing Summer Glau as Hulk...) Get the idea? It could be bad guys or minor characters too, if you want. Let your imagination run wild.

The closing date for entries is Wed 15 December 2010 . Email your entries to ian.berriman@futurenet.com (oh, and we'd really appreciate it if you don't post them online in the meantime - it'd spoil the surprise!). We'll post a gallery of our favourites shortly thereafter, and tweet about them on our Twitter feed for the rest of the world to enjoy.

What are you waiting for? Get cracking!
