Lights Out [NewgroundsTV Bumper]

Share Collapse

My submission for the Animated Bumper Collab for Round 2 of the Summer Animation Jams. Originally I wanted to make a Boomerang style bumper, and I actually finished that one, but there were some technical issues and overall I just didn't feel it was up to par. So instead, I looked around my room for stuff to make a bumper about and said "haha what if light switch but upside down" and that's how this came to be.

Considering I've never made an animation in my life, I thought I'd never even give it a try, but I've always loved TV bumpers so I felt like I had to make something for this. I think it turned out pretty well, I just wish my phone camera was better lol.

where'd the switch go?

glotch responds:

does your switch not disappear when you turn the lights off? strange...

the live action stop motion style was a good idea

This is a neat, short little concept!

glotch responds:

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. It's a shame it had to fit within 20 seconds lol, I had to work pretty hard to get the comedic timing right with the shots I had filmed. Maybe I'll extend the idea at some point, but no promises!
