But first, if you're thinking about making a topic Flipnote, don't forget to check out next week's topic theme and its description, as well as the upcoming Topics listed at the end of the Newsletter.
And now, here are the winning Flipnotes from last week's topic "Opposites". Well done to everybody who entered.
Our first topic winning selection this week is this spectacular opposite themed MV by Marshtard.
Mixing hand drawn animation, text, and photographic images, the topic is brought impressively to life, with accompanying lyrics from the song “&” by Tally Hall, a musical favorite of this creator.
Our next winning topic entry, by ∴•Daremo•∴ is based on the video game Omori.
It features many characters, locations and specific moments from the game’s story, and zings along with zest, energy, and spot-on timing, for a superlative showcase of opposites.
(PS. Don’t miss the inventory of game-story elements included in the Flipnote. It’s listed in the description.)
Marie-Ange has created a delightful MV of opposites, contrasting the likes of a night time moon with a daytime sun, and a tiny mouse with a huge giraffe.
Howard has a mysterious evil side to his mind, in this Jekyll and Hyde inspired topic winner by nester.
Beautifully illustrated with color, shading, and a great use of lighting and facial expressions, we gasped with delight as his demonic-alter ego revealed itself!
Not a villain, but an anti-villain, stars in this demonic-realm animation by Snapples.
Following the daily issues of a conflicted demon, this fabulously dark MV is overflowing with fire, brimstone, and matters of conscience.
Its detail, color and shading are extremely well done, and the underworld panoramic background really made an impression on us.
OC Vee and Lun demonstrate Tall and Short opposites in this expressive topic winning entry by L.
In fact, it’s created with such strong characters, it even involves two further opposites;
Boastful and cringing.
That’s two for two on opposite use right there!
The opposites of bright and dark are ingeniously explored in this pull-cord, light switch animation by Casjin.
We especially loved the highly effective vocal sound effects.
Note: This topic would also include giant helium filled balloons, such as the ones in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The modern hot air balloon is a craft powered by heated air.
It consists of a huge fabric bag, a propane burner to heat the air in the bag, and a wicker basket, suspended beneath to house the passengers.
Your hot-air balloons could be modern, old-world, traditional or fanciful.
Modern balloons are often designed to represent all kinds of interesting forms, objects, and even cartoon characters.
I’ve seen a Sonic the Hedgehog balloon drifting high above where I live on more than one occasion. “Chuckle”
Hot air balloons are also floated at night. It’s known as a night burn, and is quite a sight to see when they are lit up in the darkness.
So why not be inspired by this topic, and start making a hot air balloon Flipnote 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 - Hot Air Balloons and the deadline for your entries is July 3rd (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.
