Animation, like all other art is subjective. I think all entries were winners and I congratulate those who officially were named winners.

We'll do it again.

Congratulations to all the winners.

Also nice to be among them, with one of the minor prizes, as something of a CrazyTalk Animator Newbie. Only started learning the software proper with the release of CTA2 back in December.

Video Title: Charlie & Hattie's Animated Adventures

Director: Darren Thompson

Judges' Comment:

This video showcases how CrazyTalk Animator can be a good tool for training and education. Darren really impressed us by combining his own content designs with other stuff from around the Reallusion community. This is also a great example of how to turn a picture book into an animation.

This is also a nice and clear infographic video, and we especially love the girl grabbing the twitter bird to fly in the sky! So creative!
