Nude No More

June 7, 2010 - By 

We have an awesome sponsor for this Project. Threadless is giving away two great prize packages including The T-Shirt, “Photographer” that I modeled above. Make a Five Second animation based on the theme “Nude No More” and submit it using the form below to enter the contest. The winner will get a package including the “Photographer” shirt sexily modeled above, a “I heart Threadless” Tshirt and a grab bag of great threadless gear including Issues of Faesthetic Magazine, A three pack of Field Notes , funny bumper stickers, Threadless sharpies and a crap ton of fun buttons. A random winner will also be picked from all the entries will receive a “Photographers” Tshirt and some more threadless shwag. Thanks again to Threadless for sponsoring the contest. Have fun animating this one.

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 “Nude No More” 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

The contest is now closed! Stay tuned for the winners!

  • OMG…this is the big one.some hurdles but will give it a shot.

  • Nice new theme Nick!!! Will definitely try to make something again. And that sweater from threadless you and the Misses are wearing is soooo cool!!! πŸ™‚ My girlfriend is a photographer, I will have to get her one of those, she would love it.

  • Whoah! This is a big one.

  • I just received the Threadless newsletter saying they’ll be announcing big news in the Thursday newsletter – do you think you may have broken the news early?

  • Hmmm… tricky one πŸ˜‰ looking forward to see the submissions for this one. I’ll make my own if i can find a nice twist for this one

  • Dude! cool theme cant wait to see what people come up with, will start just as soon as i finish work!! cant wait.

  • thats an awesome photo up above there.. amazing.. im gonna try too.. seems kinda crackable..

  • Dang, who knew you could look so good.

  • This sounds like a really awesome idea. I think I might actually consider participating!

    Thanks πŸ™‚

  • Hm… I am not native english and I have some difficulties to understand the theme.

    Do you refer to nude like naked ?

    “Nude no more” is like “no more nude” ? (picturing someone with a sign “NO MORE NUDE PLEASE” written on it xD).

    Sorry if it sounds silly but I really need answers xD


  • Does it have to be PG-13?

  • Piouf …. ive no idea ….

  • you remind me of morgan from chuck

    • @callum

  • So when this Project Ending?
    When is the Last day to enter?


  • Great contest! First time entering, I had fun making my animation.

  • Nick I really like the photo of you for the nude – no- more promo photo. Well you share a tutorial in the photography section on that technique?

  • Hey Nick

    Finally I have had the guts to enter your competition, and I really enjoyed it. But I canΒ΄t see it on your Vimeo-page, so I am not sure if I uploaded it correctly, so here it is again:

    All the best

    Copenhagen, Denmark

  • First time entering as well πŸ™‚
    I will burn in hell after this one πŸ˜‰

    Had so much fun doing it!

    Great theme. Thank you.

  • not sure if my video posted, heres the link just in case

  • I submitted my video earlier but just discovered it was too long. Dumb newbie mistake by me. Forgot c4d starts at frame 0 so ended up with a 151 frame video.

    If mine was rejected I’ve replaced it now with proper 5 second one. 150 frames dead on.

    Sorry about the mess up.

    • dude that’s more than twice the allowed time and I can’t tell how it has anything to do with the subject?

    • HM….
      maksim,please tell me what your animation has to do with the subject, i think itΒ΄s too abstract for me πŸ˜‰

    • I’m just out of Ukraine, and not good at English! Perhaps because of this I did not do it on! I’m sorry if something is broken! To understand what is there to question, I use translator!

  • Why cant I see videos after installing Safari 5. Anyone knows that?

  • Did mine, hope you all like it, please excuse the picture quality, I tried to experiment with making it a bit fuzzy like it is being shot with a cheap old camera.

  • I thought the point of the new add your video box in the blog post was to not clutter the comments with vimeo links?

    Mine’s added and I just had an idea for a new video!

  • i redid the dynamics in mine. leaving original one as submission, but just thought id post new version here anyway,

  • Add this Nick:

    PLUS, anyone can download my C4D file and see how I made it and use it for their own personal use:

    Just credit me, thats all! πŸ™‚

  • this is giving me hard time,well enjoying it,,will come up with something cool.Though i have only a laptop and i cant access my machine .

  • Allot of first this time around then. It’s my first GSG 5 second project too. I strayed more and more away from the theme though,. And in the end it became something I wasn’t planning on creating. It’s coming soon πŸ™‚

  • finished mine today. the first stop motion entry for this theme?
    took about 12 hours to make πŸ˜€

    • wow, cool dude, I was planning on doing a stop motion with fruits getting their skin back, but since I’m only sixteen, I have to do some stuff for school, so I don’t have any time… Too bad…

  • Posted mine but it might be too abstract. First time entering this. Also just started playing with mograph.


  • ok, my first entry!I’m so excited about the result…maybe it’s because of the theme!I’m addicted to threadless πŸ˜€
    I made a 147frames long composition, sometimes vimeo says it’s 6 seconds, but its not, if you play it it ends at 5….
    here’s the link again
    Hope to see more sponsored contests!

  • OK, so it seems my first attempt at uploading failed or vimeo choked on it…

    I re-uploaded, but can’t re-submit. Hoping this will suffice:

    Thanks Nick for the tuts!

  • Vimeo took a while converting my video, so hopefully it makes it in time. Here’s the link:

  • damn just found your website (awesome btw) and wished the deadline for that project was like.. a day later ?

  • damn, always too late, nevertheless, look at this shit…

  • I have come to understand that fees for on-line degree gurus tend to be an awesome value. For instance a full 4-year college Degree in Communication from The University of Phoenix Online consists of 60 credits at $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online comes with a Bachelors of Business Administration with a full education course feature of 180 units and a tariff of $30,560. Online degree learning has made getting your college diploma so much easier because you can earn your own degree in the comfort of your abode and when you finish working. Thanks for all the other tips I have certainly learned through your site.
