Aardman Seeks Best Morph Shorts

Aardman Animations is teaming up with online retailer Firebox.com for an animation contest featuring the company’s original stop-motion star, Morph.

The contest, titled Morphmation, is calling for fans to send in their own 2-minute stop-motion Morph shorts. Inspired by the Make Your Own Morph product, Firebox will choose the five funniest and best entries to be displayed on Aardman’s YouTube channel for fans to vote and comment on.

Aardman will choose one winner to receive an original signed sketch of a scene from their film from Peter Lord, creative director of Aardman and co-creator of Morph. The runners up will receive a copy of Stop Motion Pro software and an Animation Station product.

The contest is under way now and will run through the end of April. Details on entering can be found at www.firebox.com/morphmation.
