Exciting LED animation challenge this time around...
"192 x 24"
All entries will be shown on the night on the LED panel!
Download our example project which might help you here:
Bit of a different challenge this time around, make an animation for the LED panel screen at Das Disko!
Any topic, subject or theme. Some tips though:
- The screen is low resolution (192 x 24 pixels) so keep your animation simple and bold.
- Use lots of nice contrast and avoid any fine lines or subtle gradients, they won't show up.
- We'd recommend downloading our example .aep project and working in the "MAIN" 1920x240 composition, keeping an eye on how it will be interpreted on the LED screen using the "LED Preview" composition.
- You can include audio, however it won't be played on the night via the LED screen.
- Please send us the 1920x240 file so that we can pop it on Instagram and also show it at the next main Animorsels event.
Send entries to firstname.lastname@example.org preferably as a password protected / private Vimeo link (remember to enable downloads) or via WeTransfer / Dropbox etc. Please don't send us any video files as email attachments as it will make smoke come out of our computers. Don't forget to include your full name etc. so we can give you a credit!
No overly obscene content please, anything questionable will only be included at our discretion.
Submissions from individuals only, no logos or advertisements.
Your animation must be under 20 seconds.
Ratio isn't important, square, 16:9 etc. however please keep vertical height to at least 1080px if possible.
No unauthorised use of copyrighted material! If we're not sure about any music, images, footage etc. we'll ask for proof of ownership or that it's public domain etc. Nobody wants to get sued.
Please don't upload animations to any social media channels until after the event, don't want to ruin the surprise!
Closing date for submissions - 25th February 2020.
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!
