The 2016 edition of the 24 Hour Animation Contest will take place on Friday, October 7 at 3pm PST! This is the contest’s 14th year, and the teams will have double the amount of participants of last year’s event.
This contest will teach students much about working together, meeting deadlines and making creative decisions under pressure. Although it is quite a bit to do in such a short time, the teams always finish their films…and everyone has a lot of fun, too!
