Its back! This is now our 2nd Toon Boom Animate Pro Contest.
The contest theme this time is (drum roll)….
“Recreate 15 Seconds of Your Favorite Non-Animated Movie”
YES, only 15 seconds, so this time its even easier to win, and even if you don’t, you’ll be creating something for your portfolio that is (hopefully) a recognizable and creative moment from a movie. Which everyone loves of course.
Like our previous contest, you must use Animate or the Free Animate Personal Learning Edition to enter. And to enter all you need to do is upload your video here to Vimeo and add it to this group by August 2.
Here’s my suggestions…
- Don’t go under 15 seconds. A little over is fine though if it finishes off a sentence or part of the scene, but don’t feel like doing extra time will score more points.
- “Recreate” is a broad word. Meaning, you can either loosely recreate the scene, or you can strictly recreate it, even to the point of rotoscoping. Personally (and as a judge) I think the loose, more stylized interpretations will probably be more interesting, but I’m sure I can be persuaded otherwise too.
- Unless you have a good reason not to, I think your piece will be most effective using the audio from the original movie. And us judges will probably “feel it” more with the original actors and music stings. You are obviously on your own though for capturing audio, but worst case, you can stick a mic in front of your TV or computer and capture 15 seconds like that.
- When you upload the piece, be sure to tell us what movie the scene is from, just in case its not obvious.
Good luck and feel free to ask any questions on the Vimeo Group forum. I’m one of 3 judges though, so my suggestions are just that.
