The Blind Rabbit,
9 Weekday Cross, Nottingham NG1 2GB, UK

We're back!


After a long  old break from live events we're excited to have our next couple planned!

Take a break from the keyframes & join us on Thursday 9th September for the Big Apple BashThe usual social get together, so no guest speaker, films or apples, just a few beers and a catch-up. We'll be upstairs in The Blind Rabbit, a brand new (it's not even open just yet) New York dive bar inspired venue in Nottingham.

Free tickets at the link, just helps us know roughly how many might turn up.

​We're also running another microMorsels short animation challenge, this time the theme is, "New York". We're hoping to show the animations on the giant tellys in the bar on the night!

​So, start spreading the news! Hope to see you there!


" New York "

Want to take part? Of course you do!

In keeping with The Blind Rabbit venue we're going with a New York theme!

Just email us, we'll give you your random New York object & add your name to the map below so there's no escaping.

 Essentially, any style or technique, any ratio (minimum 1080 pixels height) and keep it under 20 seconds. Submissions from individuals only please, no logos or advertisements. Please have your entry with us by Monday 6th September.

We’re hoping to show all animations on the night, we'll also post to our social channels and towards the end we'll compile all the animations into a monster New York animation! They'll also all be shown at our next live event in October (details soon!).

Send entries to hello@animorsels.co.uk preferably as a password protected / private Vimeo link (remember to enable downloads) or via WeTransfer / Dropbox / Google Drive etc. etc. Please don't send us any video files as email attachments as it will make smoke come out of our computers.

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!
