LATEST NEWS » CALLING ALL BUDDING ANIMATORS - MAKE YOUR OWN MORPH COMPETITION!
Firebox.com has teamed up with Aardman Animations – the creators of Morph – to launch an animation competition entitled ‘Morphmation’. Inspired by the hugely popular Make your Own Morph product that the quirky gift e-tailer sells, Firebox will be encouraging Morph lovers to send in their 2 minute stop-motion animations starring the lovable clay figure.
The film festival with a difference will run for six weeks – from mid March until the end of April. Budding animators can upload their entries onto Firebox.com’s dedicated webpage: http://www.firebox.com/morphmation. The e-tailer will then select the five funniest and wackiest Morph adventures and display them on Aardman’s Youtube channel, whereupon fans can rate and comment upon the entries. When choosing the final winner, Aardman will take these comments into account.
The lucky Morphmation winner will receive a one-off signed original sketch – taken from a scene within their film – drawn by Peter Lord, Creative Director of Aardman and co-creator of Morph. Runners up will receive a copy of 'Stop Motion Pro' software and an 'Animation Station' product.
Peter Lord – Creative Director of Aardman and co-creator of Morph, comments: “We started animating with modelling clay because it was cheap and easily available, but we discovered, as we went along, that it's also amazing fun. Modelling clay is really perfect for animation and I'm really excited to see what you can do with it. Amaze me!”

I going to make one!
Good luck for everyone who enters!
i may not enter!! im ramping up modelmaking and set making for my film these 2 weeks i got off.
I was looking forward to your entry Jordan!
im still pondering, i already started soooo.....
how long do you have?
1 sec worth
Well I've managed to make a Morph. Now I just need to try and make another identical one. Regrettably, both are going to end up destroyed but that's the cost of art I guess! Once again I have the utmost admiration for the Aardman animators; how they ever manage to work all the time with plasticine I'll never know.
Jordan, do you go at 24fps?
only 3000 more to go!
Good one, P&B!
im having trouble getting their voices right. maybe ill have to get audacity and make the pitch higher? how do you all do it?
buh buh buh bet buh buh
thank you ian
for Morph and Chaz's voices. i was wondering if they highered the pitch or just recorded them saying things?
yeah i think they are higher pitched
excellent work chees3gromit.
i have about 7 seconds done of my film so far.
but no sneak peeks, sorry
7 seconds! That's an epic by my standards. Tee hee.
i will add the sounds after im done filming because im not sure how to add multiple sounds in MonkeyJam.
but ive already mapped out the frames the mouth should be open or closed and whatnot.
I REALLY want to win this thing
