Some of you may remember a website called 10 second club which has been around for a few years as a great testing-ground for animators. The concept was brilliant.. every month post a sound file and then let animators try and do their best to come up with the most unique and entertaining animation for that audio.
Unfortunately, 10secondclub is no more.. but fortunately, some excellent friends have opened up 11 second club (it’s one better!) which is basically the same thing, except this time it’s hosted by AnimationMentor.com!
Animation Mentor has provided a completely rad prize for the winner each month.. an official eCritique from a real animation mentor! That’s right.. it’s a chance for the winner to get a critique just like the ones that we give students at the school.. but not only that, everyone can see the critique and learn from it!
What I love about this is that it gives the animator a great tool to improve themselves, and it also gives everyone a chance to see what an eCritique actually looks like.
The first critique was done by the famous Victor Navone, a hugely awesome person and animator who is just so talented it almost hurts.
The second critique was done by yours truly.. a very fun experience & I hope that Kevin (the november winner) finds it useful & informative!
Anyway, go check out 11secondclub.com and enjoy the experience!
