In honour of the TAIS mascot and this year’s Chinese zodiac sign, we are proud to announce that this yearÂ¹s theme for the TAIS AniJam, ten second animations that will screen in rapid succession at the TAIS Showcase in June, is â€¦ BUNNIES! (Rabbits, hares, Thumper and Bugs, bucks, does, energizers, playboys, and any other idea you may have related to voracious procreators and twitchy noses.)
Create a ten-second long animated film that somehow encompasses our “bunny” theme. Use any animation technique you want. Submit it to TAIS and we’ll edit the submissions into a Bunny AniJam film that will screen at the TAIS Showcase in June 2011 in Toronto!
Bunny Jam submissions are eligible for awards and prizes!
