Today marks the beginning of our Animation Summer Jams event, where every 2-4 weeks we'll announce a new theme and everyone is invited to create animations around said theme. Points will be awarded each round, with winners announced at the end of the summer. You don't have to participate in every round but you'll have the most opportunities to earn points that way.

The Round One theme is BAD DREAM.

We are partnering with @RubberNinja’s #Animonthly on Twitter for this round! This means you can share your entry on both Newgrounds for our jam and on Twitter to participate in #Animonthly.

To participate in #Animonthly, you should upload to Twitter on June 27th and include #Animonthly in your tweet. If your file is too big for Twitter, we recommended you include a short preview video with your tweet, along with the link to Newgrounds to view the full version.

On Newgrounds, you can upload your animation any time between now and June 27th. Include "BadDreamJam" in your tags.

Rules:

Minimum length: 15 seconds.

Content must be original; no parodies or characters you didn't create.

Music must not present licensing / royalty issues. Good resources include the Audio Portal (see Creative Commons info or ask for permission), an original composition by a teammate or one of these many royalty-free resources.

Your entry can be scary, funny, neither or both!

As lead animator, you may partner with background artists, in-betweeners, colorers, writers, voice actors, musicians and sound effects artists.

The lead animator is the one who earns points in each round of this event. Support members may work with multiple animators and change things up each round.

Round 1 Judges:

@RubberNinja - Creator and host of #Animonthly on Twitter, among other famous things.

@JohnnyUtah and @Spazkid - Art & Animation team for Nightmare Cops.

@PsychicPebbles - Internet superstar.

@PhantomArcade and @IvanAlmighty - DBZ Collab organizers and future Internet superstars.

PhantomArcade also made the fun Animation Summer Jams and Bad Dream logos!

Due Date:

Wednesday, June 27th, 11:59PM PST.

Happy animating!

Twitter is optional, you can upload your animation on Newgrounds and participate in the Animation Jam. We teamed up with #Animonthly on Twitter so people could have double the ways to share their animation this month, hopefully encouraging more people to give it a shot.

Minimum is 15 seconds, what's the ideal maximum time?

Response to Animation Jam: Bad Dream 2018-06-01 18:54:48


@TomFulp Am I right to assume that it doesn't have to be PG or anything? Like are mature themes still on the table for this event?

Response to Animation Jam: Bad Dream 2018-06-01 19:05:41


If anyone needs a creepy or scary sounding voice actor, I'm your guy!

You have a "lead animator" that is assigned to receive points throughout the competition.
