Pixarpedia Competition

Hi again!

Been very busy with a lot of uni work. That and my apple mac failure means no blogging. Sad times.

While I have been handimac'd I entered my university work into the Pixarpedia Competition! Go and see my animation here or below, and you can see Pixarpedia's channel here to see some of the other entrants.

Ideally I would have liked to done it a lot better, make the characters filled, more detail, add more waving little flowers into the composition. I made this before I knew how to use any after effects, this was pretty much my introduction to motion graphics. A steep learning curve from 0-Animation in a few days.

The closing date was the 30th of November, so you can't enter it now :( but the animations that are favorited on the Pixarpedia Channel will be whittled down into 10 by the DK judging panel, then that 10 will be sent to artsits and animators who worked on Pixar's UP to select a winner. Runners up get DK vouchers and Pixarpedia books but the winner gets to go to Pixar in Emmeryville California! :D WIN!

There are a few mint entrants to compete with, most I have wished good luck to.

So please if you can go and check out my video, leave comments, ratings, show it to anyone you know who might like it. Not that it would make any difference to the outcome, as it's not based on view counts (thank god).

They notify the winners on December the 31st, so I will let you know how its going.
