• Competition: Celebrate Morph in a Short Animation!

    This month it’s all about Morph! If you’re an Aardman fan (or you’ve been following our tutorial videos) you may remember Morph, the loveable clay character who lived on Tony Hart’s desk and could change into lots of different shapes!


    Morph is coming back in 15 new short episodes this summer which will premiere on Morph’s YouTube channel this summer. To celebrate we’re holding our own Morph animation competition! If you’re a budding animator with a cool idea for a Morph film we want to hear from you!

    The Challenge
    We’ve been busy making the new Morph episodes and now we’d like to see YOUR Morph animations! Anything goes in Morph’s world so let your imagination run wild, the only restraint is that your animation must be under one minute in length.

    The Prizes
    We will give prizes for 2 age categories – under 16 and over 16 years old.

    The winner of each category will receive a real Morph model used on the production of the new episodes, plus a Morph goodie bag!

    We will also reward a runner up from each category with a Morph goodie bag.
