And now, here are the winning Flipnotes from last week's topic "Gremlins".
Well done to everyone who entered.
The classic Twilight Zone episode, featuring a gremlin on the wing of a plane, is expertly re-imagined in this hilarious topic winning entry by Matt.
William Shatner starred in the original, genuinely scary ‘Zone’ episode, but we chuckled our socks off at the satirical take of his performance used in this Flipnote, which was spoofed by Jim Carey in the movie Ace Ventura.
Eating a strange and unusual fruit is the cause of an equally bizarre reaction in this fantastic topic winner by RedDSi3950.
Just one bite is enough for an instant gremlin transformation!
That must be some Weekly Topic fruit!
Or perhaps he ate it after midnight! “Chuckle”
We loved the contrast between the manic, over excited l’il gremlin and the shame faced stillness of his friend in this winning Weekly Topic Flipnote by illyria☆.
The creativity and distortions used to animate the mischievous gremlin are well worth watching frame by frame.
Very nicely done!
All the Gremlin movies are rolled into one in this giggly, fast paced topic winning animation by Fire Head.
Check it out, those cheeky critters can even drive too!
Me-Time is the time spent relaxing on your own, as opposed to working or doing things for others.
It can also be an opportunity to reduce stress and restore energy.
Typical Me-Time activities include:
Movies, music, and watching TV. As well as walking, reading, window shopping, and having a Spa-day.
What do you do for your Me-Time?
Why not show us in the form of a Flipnote!
Note: If your Me-Time activity is making Flipnotes, you could focus on which aspects of this benefit and relax you.
We really love the way you're all so creative with these topics and look forward to seeing the Flipnotes you create for them.
Make sure to post your entries to the Weekly Topic channel Weekly Topic - Me-Time and the deadline for your entries is March the 12th (12pm EST / 4pm GMT).
We would also encourage you to add a description to your Flipnotes. This is your opportunity to explain any points of interest and specific details that we could feature in the topic winner reviews.
And don't forget, if you want a cool thumbnail picture on your Flipnote, whichever frame you save the Flipnote on, that will become the thumbnail. So choose your favorite frame for this, or add in a cool title page at the end, and save on that.
Keep on Flipnoting and the best of luck with your entries.
