Bitesized Animation Events & Socials

Seaside Social
23 Jun, 18:00
Penny Lane,
9 Fletcher Gate, Nottingham NG1 1QQ, UK

Animation, motion graphics & video folk, take a break from the keyframes & join us on Thursday 23rd June for the Animorsels Seaside Social!


Join us at Nottingham's bar, kitchen & arcade - Penny Lane from 6pm.

Have a few drinks, meet fellow animators & designers, and maybe win a few two pence pieces on the arcades!

The usual social get together, so no guest speaker or films etc. Grab a ticket just so we have a rough idea of numbers.

We're also running another microMorsels short animation challenge, this time the theme is "Ice Creams & Lollies" and you're limited to 99 frames! Details below...

Hope to see you there!


"Ice Creams & Lollies"

Any style or technique, just keep it 99 frames in duration and animate at 24fps to avoid lots of questions about frame rates. No animating at 3fps and sending us a 33 second long animation 🙂

Please have your entry with us by Wednesday 22nd June so we can pop them all on Instagram in time for our Seaside Social the next evening.

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. 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 too questionable will only be included at our discretion.

  • Your animation should 99 frames in duration at 24fps.

  • 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 in the 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 - Wednesday 22nd June.


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!
