Make a Morph Animation & Win a Golden Morph!
Calling all Morph fans! Don’t miss the fantastic new animation competition on Morph’s website where you could win a very special and unique prize – your very own Golden Morph, no less!
To take part in the competition you’ll need to come up with a cool idea for a Morph animation and then bring it to life with the help of creative director Merlin Crossingham’s video tutorials. There’s also a Morph animation film kit you can download, which includes a guide to making your own Morph model, a storyboard template, special effects, and a cut-out template to make your Aardstand – a must-have for making sure your film doesn’t end up all wobbly!
Your animation can be about anything, as long as Morph gets a starring role. There are two categories – 16 and over and under 16s – and you can enter as many films as you like.
Here are the full competition details:
- Keep your films short and sweet – they need to be no longer than 1 minute in length, please!
- You can download a free trial of our Animate It! software to get you started or use a streamlined version of the software with the free app. If you’re new to animating there are lots of tips you can follow on the website.
- Once you’re ready to share your animation with the world, you’ll need to upload it to YouTube and then email the link and which category you are entering to GoldenMorph@aardman.com. All the entries will be uploaded to Morph’s gallery page.
- Be sure to get your entries submitted by 12pm BST on Friday 18th September 2015.
All the competition entries will be judged by Merlin and Peter Lord, Morph’s co-creator. They’ll pick their favourite entries from each age category, with two lucky winners receiving an exclusive golden Morph figurine, created especially for the competition by Aardman’s expert model-makers! The two winning films will also be featured videos on Morph’s YouTube channel for the world to admire!
