Animorsels - Type Hype

In October we'll be welcoming kinetic typography animator Mat Voyce to Animorsels. We'll also have the usual short animations and some other fun surprises, perhaps a few spooky ones too with it being so close to Halloween!

​We're also running another microMorsels short animation challenge, this time the theme is, "Halloween". As usual all animations will be screened on the night!

We look forward to catching up with you all!



Want to take part? Of course you do!

In keeping with the spooky season we're going with a Halloween theme!

Just email us, and we'll add your name to a grave below so there's no escaping.

Full instructions / rules etc. below the graveyard!


 Essentially, any style or technique, any ratio (minimum 1080 pixels height) and keep it around 20 seconds ish. Submissions from individuals only please, no logos or advertisements. Please have your entry with us by Tuesday 26th October.

We’ll show all animations on the night, we'll also post to our social channels!

About Us

At Animorsels we run animation evenings, events and socials, bringing together the local animation community to watch animation, make animation, learn new techniques, chat, drink, catch up, meet new people and generally have a bit of fun.


We alternate our main animation evenings which feature a guest speaker and selection of short films alongside our socials which are more of a general get together. At each event we run our short animation challenge, microMorsels, each with a different theme, which we screen just after the short films. We’ve had some great entries at past events!


Animorsels is run by Bottletop, a Nottingham animation studio, with support from RTS Midlands & Antenna. Past events have also had sponsorship from the lovely folk at Juno and Patchworks with regular support for our socials from Das Kino and Penny Lane.


If you haven’t been along to Animorsels yet then pop along to our next event, we’d love to have you there!
