Movie Jam 3 is a GO! The theme is "unusual deaths" or Death Jam, since that sounds fun. You can work alone or with a team.

There is a Wikipedia page dedicated to unusual deaths. Pick one of them and animate it!

1) Open with this intro featuring art by JohnnyUtah (FLA / GIF). It's 30fps so adjust accordingly if your movie is different.

2) Fill in the title card with your subject, for example "455 BC: Aeschylus" or "1660: Thomas Urquhart" - you can edit / stylize this part any way you like.

3) Attempt to illustrate a short build up to the death; a set-up and punchline. Don't drag it out where it becomes boring. You can alternatively provide a brief background story as text after your title card if it works better or you are in a time crunch.

Tag your movie with "deathjam", upload it by Sunday at 11:59PM EST and you're PART OF HISTORY!

You can also announce who you are animating in this thread. It's fine if there are repeats but having a list of who is already in play might help people narrow their search. I'm gonna take a stab at Qin Shi Huang.

Question - should we open this up to the Darwin Awards archives as well? Thoughts?


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I got a question, do we have to use the same people in these unusual deaths or can we just use the concept of how they died?

Intent is to use the same people, like a little history lesson but if that feels awkward you could change it up.

do you have to animate one off that wiki page, or can you make one up?

Are you allowed to use more than one death for our movies? If so, do we repeat only the "Date: Name" part for the other deaths?

Myself, Magnivez, and Bill Premo are going to be working together on 1993: Garry Hoy, I think. We might change it but at this point I'm pretty sure that's the death we'll be doing

Trivia: The Mortal Kombat II soundtrack CD (as I recall, you had to send away for it, you couldn't get it in stores), had a track called "Death Jam". It was a techno track with a bunch of sound effects from the game put in to go with the music.
