Bitesized Animation Events & Socials
As you may have guessed, our plans for live events are a touch scuppered for now, can't believe it's been over a year since we last saw everyone at the Synth Social back in February 2020. We're brewing plans and hopefully we'll be able to have a summer social before too long, followed by the return of actual events not too long after that.
If you want to take part just email us and get animating! Full details below...
Want to take part? Of course you do!
We'd like you to design and animate your own crazy golf hole...
Just email us with your choice of hole (best to include some backup choices as well), if it’s free we'll add your name to the card below so there's no escaping. If none of your choices are free then we'll assign you a random free hole. First come first served.
(If we fill up all 18 holes then we'll go back around again like we did at Christmas.)
The lovely folk at Motion Hatch will be awarding a place on their new "Passive Income for Motion Designers" course to their favourite animation. We've also got some other fun surprises to be revealed as we go...
Full instructions / rules etc. below the card!
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. We'll be posting the animations from the 1st (hole 01) to the 18th (hole 18) of June.
Your animation can be as bonkers as you like, only stipulation is that it be related to the theme of your hole and have a golf ball (or multiple, who knows) in it.
Get your animation to us the morning before your date at the latest. So if you're the 8th June, send it to us by the morning of the 7th please, you get the gist. If your date falls on a weekend then please try and get it over to us on the Friday so that we can spend our weekend at the pub.
We’ll post each day’s animation to our social channels, towards the end we'll compile all the animations into a monster crazy golf animation! They'll also all be shown at our next live event.
Send entries to firstname.lastname@example.org 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. Don't forget to include your full name & personal Instagram so we can give you a credit!
Some more boring rules...
Submissions from individuals only, no logos or advertisements.
No overly obscene content please, anything questionable will only be included at our discretion.
Your animation should be under 20 seconds.
Any ratio, but please stick to at least 1080 pixels height.
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 date, don't want to ruin the surprise!
Closing date for submissions - The morning before your date.
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!
