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!”

im still pondering, i already started soooo.....


iantimothy Posted: Apr 5th 2009

how long do you have?


jordan Posted: Apr 5th 2009

1 sec worth
lol...


Boffin Posted: Apr 5th 2009

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.


Purple&Brown Posted: Apr 5th 2009

Jordan, do you go at 24fps?


jordan Posted: Apr 5th 2009

yup


Purple&Brown Posted: Apr 6th 2009

only 3000 more to go!


jills Posted: Apr 6th 2009

Good one, P&B!


Purple&Brown Posted: Apr 7th 2009

lol


chees3gromit Posted: Apr 7th 2009

Purple&Brown Posted: Apr 8th 2009

do what?


iantimothy Posted: Apr 8th 2009

buh buh buh bet buh buh


chees3gromit Posted: Apr 8th 2009

thank you ian ;)

for Morph and Chaz's voices. i was wondering if they highered the pitch or just recorded them saying things?


iantimothy Posted: Apr 9th 2009

yeah i think they are higher pitched


chees3gromit Posted: Apr 9th 2009

i think i got all my voices recorded :)


Purple&Brown Posted: Apr 10th 2009

LOL!|-)


Boffin Posted: Apr 10th 2009

excellent work chees3gromit.


chees3gromit Posted: Apr 10th 2009

thank you :)

i have about 7 seconds done of my film so far.

but no sneak peeks, sorry ;)


Boffin Posted: Apr 10th 2009

7 seconds! That's an epic by my standards. Tee hee.


chees3gromit Posted: Apr 10th 2009

thanks Boffin :D

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
