I have been hosting the Animation Challenge for the past two rounds and sadly to say there wasn’t a whole lot of participation. The first one had one entry and the second had none although it went for a good two month. So the question I have is: Is anybody still interested in an animation challenge? And how should we be doing the animation challenge so that we:
a) have particpants (at least two per round)
b) it is doable in a timeframe of 4 weeks
Now I’d be willing to do these challenges but I need some help on how the community would like the animation challenges to be.
This is a suggestion from me:
The animation should be around 10-15sec. no more. I’d suggest the following categories:
- animate to a soundclip
- animate to a general topic like “The Circus” or “Chaos”
- copy a given animation using other assets at hand and possibly changing the flow of it or adding spice to it
A round goes for 4.- 6 weeks depending on the topic.
Voting is for 1 week.
The winner gets to suggest the next topic, clip, animation.
If anybody has further suggestions go ahead and post em.
Oh and one last thing does anybody have good online ressources (besides YouTube) for obtaining clear soundclips for animations?
