UPDATE 2: Hey everyone this is Neal. So here is the low down on what is happening and why a lot of entries have not been posted. A couple of days before the deadline Vimeo updated their privacy settings, and that screwed up everyones videos that they uploaded. I was not able to add any videos to the channel. I had tried to message everyone that entered and ask them to change their settings but it was very time consuming and I am sure everyone didn’t get the message that I sent out. I still have all the emails in my inbox, so what I need you guys to do is go to your entries and make sure the privacy settings are set so that I can add the video to a channel. Over the course of the next 24 hours I will go back through and add all the ones I can. Thanks!

UPDATE: Hi everyone. We are reviewing the comments right now to make sure everyone gets added. Keep in mind, the form in the blog post is the only official way to get your video added. As far as I know, everyone that has submitted though the form has been added. Either way, we are looking though the comments and double checking. Sorry about the problems. We are always trying to make this easier for everyone. But, with over 150 entries, some people fall though the cracks. As always, thanks for all the awesome entries. Winners will be announced this week after we get this all sorted out. Cheers!

Four colors constantly surround us: Cyan Magenta Yellow and blacK. Everything you see has been printed with CMYK. Let’s see how you can rock these four colors out and make a sick animation.

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 “CMYK” to make a five second motion piece and enter it into the form below. 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 the Five Second Projects Archive to see all of the past themes.


1. Submissions must be Five Seconds Long!
2. Only animation is accepted. Video only submissions will not.
3. The animations has to do with the theme in some way.
4. Original Work only. Don’t cut out 5 seconds of already made work.
5. Link back to GSG on your Vimeo Post

Why Should You Enter?

1. Try new techniques or software
2. Limitations help get the mind working.
3. Make short, awesome pieces for your reel.
4. Get critique from your peers.
5. Promote yourself.

How Do I Enter my Video?
We are gonna try something different this time around. Instead of posting your entry in the comments we will be using the form below to take entries.

1. Create a five second animation based on the theme.
2. Upload your video to Vimeo. Don’t forget to add a link back to this blog post.
3. Submit your link to the form below and I will add it to the channel
4. Deadline is Sunday, July 25th.

Sorry we are no longer excepting entries. Be sure to participate in the next 5 Second Project!
