We're coming up on the best time of year; our annual Halloween Spooktacular!
To participate, simply make a spooky / creepy / horror-themed animation, game, art or song. It can be funny or serious, as long as it fits the spirit of the season!
Release your entry any time between now and October 31st and tag it with "halloween2019" to participate.
As always, any music in your game or animation must be used with permission or from a source that has granted an open license / no copyright status. Here are some resources! If you’re a musician who has made spooky music, you could post it in this thread and let people know it’s ok to use in their games and animation.
There are PRIZES!
1) Best Animation - Scary - $100
2) Best Animation - Funny - $100
3) Best Game - $100
4) Best Song - $100
5) Best Art - $100
6) Best Story - $100 (share your story in the Writing Contest thread)
We may expand some of the prizes later based on category turn-out and how things are going with Supporters. If you can spare $3 per month or $25 for the year, your support would be greatly appreciated!
Some sad news: I was going to be introducing the GLAS: Animation Next screening in Philly this month but the screening got cancelled due to the venue having a temporary shut-down. Hopefully we’ll be able to revisit this in the future! On that note, three days remain to support the launch of GLAS Animation Festival 2020. This is a great festival and has nearly achieved the KS goal! Update: The goal was achieved! Thank you everyone who helped!
Also my back has gone out on my twice this month, which hasn’t stopped me from moving along with stuff but I haven’t been as responsive as usual due to not spending as many hours in front of the computer… I have a feeling that’s what got me here in the first place. The silver lining is I THINK this is part of me correcting a lifetime of bad posture and I hope I’ll be better off in the end.
