Amateur animators are invited to submit stop-motion videos to be featured on the website of and possibly shown at Gumby Fest 2014.
Though Gumby Fest 2014 takes place on June 14 in Glendora, organizers are welcoming amateur animators to send stop-motion videos to be featured on the web site, www.gumbyfest.net, and possibly screened at the celebration.
Beginning animators can download smartphone apps to create their own videos, a sample of which is found on the Gumby Fest web site on the “Technicals” page.
All ages are invited to participate. Videos should be no more than 15 minutes long and must be suitable for family audiences.
For information about submitting videos, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put “Video Submission Info” in the Subject Line.
