Animation Contest Topic Ideas


What do you think of something open ended? Where the animator can come up with their own scene?

I had a little funny scene in mind where Shlitzy is in a job interview at Pixar. Buzz Lightyear is sitting behind the desk looking at a stack of applications and demo reels.

Shlitzy says, “…ummm, I haven’t worked in a while…”

Buzz looks up from the applications. " I hear ya brother…"

Hooch, I copied and pasted some of those topic suggestions. I NEVER EVER make a mistake. Yeah, right…

I will add William’s suggestion of an open ended topic and post a poll very shortly.
