Topic is: MAGIC

___________________________


Start: Monday, August 1st, 9:00 am
End: Monday, August 8th, 9:00 am

San Francisco, USA, Timezone!

100 frames, no more, no less. Adding sound is okay. Any rig is fine. Any style is fine. 1st place winner gets any $50 gift from Amazon.com (Amazon must be able to ship to your address).

Email me your quicktime movie or a link to youtube/vimeo/etc. once you're done.

ALRIGHT! Anybody up for another 100 frame animation contest? A few workshop people have asked about it, so I wanted to ask everybody on the intertubes about it as well. It would be cool to get at least 10 people who are committed to doing it.

We could start in a week, so leave a comment and mention a theme you'd like to use. Use the contest tag for prior examples and inspiration.

As a reminder:

- the shot has to be 100 frames long (not shorter, not longer)
- you can use sound if you want to
- you have one week to finish it
- winner gets a $50 Amazon prize (make sure that Amazon ships to where you live - otherwise I can't send you want you want!)

Who's in?

I'd love to get in on one. Need the deadline to get me to finish work these days. Theme? Since I've got the death of the shuttle program on the brain. "Space!"

Matt Johnson said...

I am in! Perfect timing too.

For some reason the word "string" came to mind?

Matt -

Hannah said...

I'm in! With the latest Harry Potter movie out, I'm thinking "magic".

Nate said...

I'd love to enter, Would the contest take place after Siggraph?

Alex said...

I'd like to participate! I'm thinking about "Martial Art", maybe this could be the theme!

Romit Dodhia said...

I am in! theme - escape?

Jonah Sidhom said...

Since everyone is basing their ideas off current events, mine is "crime," inspired by Murdoch. :)

I'll participate!

aziz k. said...

I'm in! How about "an unexpected visitor" as the theme?

Jean-Denis Haas said...

Ooooh, some good suggestions!

@Nate When does Siggraph end? Thursday? We can start on Friday, that should work!

Unexpected Visitor and Magic sound good. Then again, Space is a nice one too (Space battle FTW!).

Justin Owens said...

That sounds like fun, I'll participate. Magic stands out as a fun topic!

Edwin said...

Count Me In!

Jan Faye said...

YAY! Magic's got my vote.
How bout - Over Acting

Daniel said...

I'm in! over acting sounds like fun to animate properly!

Ankit Gokani said...

I am in India amazon dosent ship but then also i am in well theme according to me should be sports or fear

Andrew said...

Sounds good!

How about "Caught red handed" as a theme. Other than that, magic sounds quite good. But then again, so too does space.

Anyway, i'll have a crack at it.

Darrin said...

yep - I would like to take part.

Dapoon said...

BlurFrame said...

Depends on when it starts, if its after 31st (11SecClub ends), then I am in...Would love to give this a shot.

CANTrow said...

I'm in! Did it start already?

Andrew said...

I'm fairly sure that it starts the Friday after SIGGRAPH. I think that's the August 12th =)B

Another theme suggestion: against massive odds.

Jean-Denis Haas said...

There's some job stuff regarding Siggraph that I was referring to, which is going on this week. I was actually planning on starting at the end of this week.

Jessica Gamio said...

Now that i'm finally back in Cali I can now actually get work done..so count me IN!

BlurFrame said...

If its not too late to ask can you please start the contest on Monday or after ?

Jean-Denis Haas said...

I don't think it would be too bad to start on Monday.

coolbird22 said...

definitely in !! :D

Hannah said...

I reeeaaaally wanted to participate, but I randomly got swamped with work this week/weekend. Sadly no time now. :(

BlurFrame said...

Is it me or is the widget showing the wrong time left ? MON 9.00 AM in LA is like 28 hours away, right.

Jean-Denis Haas said...

Hmm... works for me. It's showing one day and a bit more than an hour right now and that's right.

BlurFrame said...

Okay cool , it doesn't seem to compensate for timezones, I guess. To me it shows time remaining according to MON 9.00 AM here.
No worries :)

Jean-Denis Haas said...

That sucks though. I took it off, don't want it to be confusing.

Bruno Andrade said...

looking forward to seeing the entries.

Jonathan Bento said...

Me too Bruno haha!
