Compete in the 24 Hour Animation Competition this Friday.

Long Beach has been running an internal 24 hour animation competition for the last five years. This year they are opening it up to more universities. It is a 24 hour competition to produce 30 seconds of animation. We are going to keep the labs open Friday 4pm to Sat 5pm so you guys can participate.

There are some prizes for the winning team (of all schools.) The winning team with get 3 Day CTNexpo passes. The projects will be judged by an impartial panel.

The contest requires 5 member student teams. You will get the theme on Friday at 5pm. You can use any method to create animation.

Flash, Toonboom, Maya, Composting with after effects, Stop motion, Down load rigs are all fair game. You should not bring anything that you pre-built. Everyone participating starts at the same place. Anything you can legally down load (ie rigs) or can shot with your video camera, or is in fair use online is ok. The only catch is every frame needs to be manipulated by you. (ie composted video or stop motion is ok)

We will have the labs open but you can bring your own equipment as well.

SIGN UPS, Deadline Thursday 12 midnight:

If you already have a team, have one person fill out the form with all 5 of your team member names.

If you would like to participate but do not have a team yet we can add you to teams before Friday.
