“Bah, Humbug”

December 16, 2013 - By 


It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Well, we think so, but not everyone would agree.

In this month’s holiday-themed Five Second Project, squash the holiday cheer by using the theme “Bah, Humbug!” to create a five second animation and submit it on the project page. We’ll give you through the end of the year to show us your inner Scrooge.

PRO TIP: Try using the theme as a visual metaphor. In other words, there shouldn’t be a need to add the theme name as text in your animation.

  • Killing me. I’ve got a great idea, but not enough knowledge on how to execute it. Definitely not enough to learn what I don’t know in 2 weeks. Blrgh. Perhaps I’ll still work on it.

  • Going on holiday without computer till the 31th, cannot do it 🙁

  • Finally new 5 second project????, this is my first time hearing this “bah humbag” thing but I like it ???, sound like me????.
    Ok time to throw some snow spheres????.

  • I wanted this 5 sec project to be my first but it is smack during my traveling time.
    I will do the next one. One day I’ll know 3d heheh, one day I will.

    Thank you to the Greyscale Team for all their hard work.

  • Ebenezer Scrooge ! Really good joke 😀

  • Is there a specific image resolution for these Five Second Projects…..?

  • This one’s tough. I got an idea though. I’ve missed the last few challenges, so there is no way I’m missing out on this one.

  • Hi!
    I would like to participate but i didn’t understand what does ““Bah, Humbug!” “mean. I take a look on the internet but i didn’t get it

  • I might have taken this one a bit too literally…

    Happy New Year to GSG and the team!

  • Hehe,
    I made this in one day just before Xmas : https://vimeo.com/82619713
    Just a pretext to play with dynamics, not to make a nice animation …

  • Hey!
    Thanks for the opportunity to express my humbugness, here is the link to my submission:



  • !!!This is not for kids!!!
    I repeat NOT FOR KIDS!

    Happy Holidays:)

  • Hello, here is my video, i dont know if im still in time but i post it just in case… https://vimeo.com/83355890

  • I wanted to make it but fifa 14 took most of my free time 🙂 and I had a great idea: kids are happy to see Santa with huge sack full of gifts, they are running to him. Then Santa instead of giving presents starts to bang them with his sack. At the end he says Humbug!

    Got carried away and missed the deadline. Happy with what I accomplished.
