Animation August

#AnimationAugust

This month we are introducing the brand new creative challenge, ‘Animation August’.

We are challenging you to create a series of 2D or 3D animations during the month of August. These animations can be daily or weekly creations or you could even create one complex animation to share at the end of the month!

They can be as simple as a flip book, or as complex as you like and as long or as short as you like, depending on your experience. The point is to have a go!

  5. You must not post old work.
  6. You are encouraged to share your daily progress throughout the month on social media, or on your own blog if you have one and don’t forget to link back to us! We might even feature your animation on our blog!

You can also share your animations on our Facebook Group. We would love to see you there!

Tips to make things a little more manageable

  • Have your idea and materials planned in advance

Ideas to make your work a little more interesting

  • Instead of animating a simple moving object, try telling a story
  • You could make your animations into something comical. We all love to laugh!

And if you know any other creatives who might also enjoy this challenge, why not encourage them to have a go!
