Five Second Project Winner – “Retro”

September 23, 2010 - By 


Wow, the Five Second Projects entires are getting better and better. This theme brought out the fun retro old school in everyone. With so many different retro themes and techniques, it made it hard to pick a winner. In the end, this spot by Brett Morris won my heart and reminded me of the days when my cousin would make Beastie Boys and Ozzy Osbourne mix tapes.

As always, there are no losers when it comes to the Five Second Projects. Hopefully you have a new chunk of awesome five second animation to add to your reel or portfolio. Hey, even if not, hopefully you learned something in the process. Thanks again for entering the Five Second Projects. Hope to get a new theme out for you Monday. Stay tuned!

  • Great stuff guys! Congratulations! I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who remembers things like VHS, jamboxes, and homemade mix tapes. Remember having to record them off the radio? The reception would fade during the song, the tape would jam, and the DJ would mow over the beginning and the end of every song? But who cared, it sounded great!
