Spungella Animation Contest - narrowing it down

Some great ideas were posted in the comments section of the "Spungella Contest Idea" post.

I think what I will start with (and I can implement other ideas in future contests) is this:

- a 100 frame exercise with a given "instruction" through a word, like "disgust" or a situation "unreachable goal", etc. with a one week animating time frame, use any rig you want, any medium you want. It starts on a Monday and ends that week on Sunday, then, email file/link on next Monday and whatever I get and save that day will enter for voting. I like the idea of an overall poll voting by everybody down to 5 clips and then I'll decide who's #1 and 2.

I want to include outside animators and all my current workshop takers (online and on-site) for one massive submission (for those who have time). The contest will start in about 2 or 3 weeks, so that people can finish their school thesis and so that everybody gets a heads-up.

Stay tuned!

Cheers
JD

Will there be some place to "meetup" with other contestants? Forum?

how about friday night till the next sunday night? The extra weekend can have a huge diffrence for us worker bees:)

@Richie I know what you mean, but then people with no jobs or more time than full time worker bees have even more time to polish it up. Either way, it will always be less ideal for some people. It will be Monday to Sunday, with delivery the following Monday. Of course that's me trusting people they won't work during the second Monday until midnight.
