@El-Cid has suggested the worst animation jam theme ever and we’re gonna just DO IT.


The Elon Musk Animation Jam


You have five weeks to create an animation about Elon Musk. There is a lot of material to work with; when he’s not shitposting on Twitter, Elon is involved with at least five companies:


  • Tesla - Electric cars, powerwall batteries and solar roofs.
  • SpaceX - Reusable rockets and Starlink satellite internet.
  • The Boring Company - Drilling tunnels under cities, maybe for a Hyperloop some day.
  • OpenAI - Artificial Intelligence.
  • Neuralink - Brain-computer interface company. 


He’s also partnered with Grimes and just had a baby named X Æ A-12.


Rules


The goal is to make people laugh; this isn’t meant to be a commercial or rant. Musk is polarizing but I hope we can all agree there is comedy to mine here.


You may not use unlicensed commercial music in your entry. Please use the Audio Portal (see the licensing terms / cc license on individual song pages) or one of these royalty free resources.


To keep the quality bar above cheap memes, you may not use existing photographs, video or audio clips of Elon. We’re gonna keep this classy with all original illustrations and voice acting. If your plan was to animate over a Joe Rogan clip... sorry.


Deadline


Upload your animation by June 22nd (end of day PST) and include the muskjam tag.


Collaboration


Teams are welcome and encouraged!


Voice actors - please speak up in this thread if you would like to offer your voice talents.

Sounds like a blast (Get it? Blast, like a rocket, 'cause he's the rocket guy), I think I might try and make something for this one.


One question, are there any particular length requirements we need to meet or can the cartoon be as long or short as we want?

I need to know how many stupid jokes I need to/get to write.


I am the writer of the second greatest South Park fanfiction on this entire planet AND THEREFORE THE UNIVERSE!!!


Also I make cartoons, they're pretty cool too.

Elon Musk as a theme... This can either go completely wrong, or end in a catastropy. Looking forward for both outcomes to happen! Only on Newgrounds.

I’m making a film about Elon Musk making Darcy a genetically engineered catgirl up for domestic ownership. Jayden Nono (Darcie’s brother) adopts her

Worst themes are the best themes, hear hear.

We’re gonna keep this classy

That linked animation is certainly the definition of “classy”.

Sadly, I can't animate for shit and have a lot on my plate right now. I'll try to release some Elon fan art though. Good luck to everyone.
