Does anyone know of a weekend challenge for animation? The WC we have here for stills is absolutely killer and some really great work has come out of it. I’d really like to try my hand at doing the same friendly competition for animation. I think it’d really kickstart a lot of people into using the bounty of the tools we’ve got with blender.
Does anyone know of one that exists already? If not, I have a few ideas:
- Start with a mesh, provided by the previous week’s winner
- Start with a sound file
- Do it like the stills WC and have it based on a theme
Anyone else have ideas? This idea has been buzzing around in my head for a while, and I think it’d be pretty awesome considering the talent we have around here.
Length: 5, 10, 20 seconds?
Size: 320x240 max?
Format: mpeg? divx? avi (straight out of the blender render)?
Other: Restrict any editing to the Sequencer and its plugins? Require a frame for posting?
Needless to say, I’d be more than happy to help run it if there were people interested.
