Firebox Morphmation Competition

Posted by Big Boo on March 31st, 2009

my own morphI always loved watching the Amazing Adventures of Morph, the cool little plasticene guy created by Aardman Animation and made famous thanks to appearing on Take Hart.  You might not have been able to understand a word he said, but to watch him get completely frustrated when all his plans fell apart around him (usually thanks to Chaz getting in the way) was guaranteed to raise a smile.

You may have come across the My Own Morph kit by now, and indeed it was featured as part of my list of eighties themed gifts a little while back.  One of the stockists of this kit is Firebox, who are now running a competition for you to put this kit to good use.

The Morphmation Animation Competition tasks you with making your very own stop-motion animated film featuring Morph. It’s up to you what the little fella gets up to in the film (well, within reason) but they must be less than 2 minutes in length. You have until April 30th to send in your entries, when five finalists will be chosen and posted on Aardman’s YouTube channel. Aardman Animation will then pick a winner based on viewing counts and comments left on YouTube.

Firebox have some of the initial entries on their website already, and whilst they are pretty simple it’s worth taking a look to see the quality of Morph model making on show, which ranges from the quite good to the freak of nature… Just follow the competition link above to take a look.
