Well done to everyone who entered.
In a case of creation inspired through adversity Calite has made this topic winner featuring an exhausted trucker with a busted radio, using a broken DSi microphone to record the soundtrack.
Now that’s a great way to take advantage of malfunctioning technology.
Not only does the audio sound utterly convincing, but it helped generate the idea for this fantastic truck Flipnote.
Let’s just hope the bleary eyed driver doesn’t fall asleep at the wheel eh!
The highway becomes a total death-trap when Glare gets hold of a big’ ol’ truck, in this topic winning entry by CosmicGAZ.
It’s fabulously animated with great vehicle perspective, deranged driver expression, and a jaw-dropping photo-texture explosion for the sledgehammer ending.
All other road users beware!!!
In a classic cartoon world jonah1 presents this hilarious road traffic incident, where an unfortunate hotdog trucker swerves off the edge of a cliff!
And boy-oh-boy is it a long way down…..
Does anyone else fancy a grilled wiener?!
We loved the overlapping construction techniques used to show the development of this amazing piece of truck art, drawn by わermorew.
Utilizing the pencil tool to its fullest, and both Flipnote layers, the finished vehicle can be seen in full detail in the final frame.
In this tongue in cheek, competitive shout-out by Xenon408 America claims to have the best trucks.
But look out guys! Because it seems Romania can sure give you a run for your money with some seriously powerful tractors!
“Truck the video game”, animated by Soupersoup involves driving your lorry with great skill along a busy road without crashing!
It looks seriously challenging, but huge fun.
Please, please, please, can we have a go?
There’s many things we can grab if we’re in a hurry, hungry, or in need.
It could be almost anything; your wallet, phone, keys, coat, a drink, or a bite to eat.
In animation this action is fast and very precise. And usually involves looking, reaching, grasping and retrieving, all following in quick succession.
Your Flipnotes could be about any subject or idea you like, so long as it features grabbing in some way.
Why not use your OCs for this animated movement. That’s always fun!
Whatever you decide, let’s all grab a stylus and start making an entry for this topic today!
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 - The Grabbing Action and the deadline for your entries is April the 23rd (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.
