For this Five Second Project, It’s all about what makes you feel most at home. Just think about what makes you feel happy and riff off of that for your project. It’s time to get a little more personal.



What Are Five Second Projects?
We all want to make cool shit for our demo reel right? Sometimes you just need a theme to get you started… Some rules to fight against. Use the theme “Home Sweet Home” to make a five second motion piece and link it in the comments of this blog post. Please be sure to post a link in this post’s comments to ensure me seeing it. If your new to five second projects, why not check out last week’s theme here.



Rules

  1. 1. The animation can’t be longer than nine seconds. FIVE SECONDS is highly recommended!
  2. 2. The animation must fit the theme.
  3. 3. Only submit animation. Any and all animation forms are accepted (stop motion, hand drawn, cg, 3d, motion design, etc… ). Unmodified, videos will not be accepted, however.



Why Should You Enter? Check out the video…



How Do I Enter my Video?

  • 1. Create a five second animation based on the theme, “Home Sweet Home”.
  • 2. Upload your video to Vimeo. Don’t forget to add a link back to this blog post.
  • 3. Post a link to this posts comment thread and I will add it to the Channel.
  • 4. Deadline is Sunday December 13th

  2. Quick fix – In the “How Do I Enter my Video?” list you still have the last 5SP theme “Start with a Photo”… :)

    Working on this new one! Thanks for the new theme, I’m excited.

    • Try just working on one instead of two. If you find more time, find ways to make your entry better instead of doing two.

    Hey Nick, love the site. Is the theme cross stitch image for Home Sweet Home a 3D render? If it is it would be amazing if you could do a step by step on how you created it. Or at the very least how to get the cloth material and stitching to look so photo realistic. That would be solid.

    • That is actually a photo. hehe. My girlfriend made it. She is selling it soon. I WISH i could render stitching looking that good. :)

    • Thanks, Dennie. It is too long for the project however. Try trimming of some of the end. Also, when doing a five second project, try starting with a 5 second comp. That way you wont go over.

    • You should be able to bake that lighting on to the house. Try looking up how to bake textures on the objects.

  5. My very first 5 second project, and my first AE project! I am excited to have finally made one of my very own.

    Thanks for the push and the creative constraints.
