This week's topic is all about pulling levers.
But what does pulling a lever do? .
The answer to this question is entirely up to you!
It could activate a machine, shift a gear, raise a crane, swing a bridge, or anything else that you can think of.
But remember, it doesn’t have to be rational, sensible, or even believable!
In animation, a lever can activate just about anything!
Why not think outside the box, and come up with the craziest, most outlandish thing you can think of for your lever to operate, and really blow our minds with your topic entries.
We 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 - Pulling A Lever and the deadline for your entries is June 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.
