• Squash and Stretch Competition Winners!

    The first Animate It! competition has been judged by none other than Aardman Animator, Steve Edge, who features in our new Animate It how-to video! Steve was really impressed with all your entries, so well done to everyone who created an animation! We are happy to announce that our winner is…

    Samuel Hayward!

    Steve was really impressed with this animation: “Samuel’s squash and stretch is great and there is a really good pace to his work. His modelling is nice too, changing from a worm, to a tyre to a monster that finally gets splatted at the end. I thought the splat was a great way to end it!”

    Well done to Samuel, who will receive an Animate It! Kit! You can watch Samuel’s winning animation below.

    We also have a runner up prize in this competition, which has been awarded to…

    Morgan and Eliot!

    Steve thought the modelling and animation in this entry was great: “I like how they have made their little creatures interact and take different forms. It’s also cool that you can see their family having dinner etc in the background, it shows how much work they put into it!”

    Morgan and Eliot win Wallace & Gromit’s adventures in The Wrong Trousers on DVD, well done!

    Keep a look out for the next Animate It! competition coming very soon!
