THINGS TOOK A TURN is an annual animation anthology that challenges female, trans, nonbinary, and genderqueer creators to push storytelling boundaries by flipping familiar narratives.
- Participants must pick a known story or trope and find a new way to change or interpret it into a short animation. This can mean keeping tropes as loose threads of your story or sticking to the original plot like glue, but there MUST be a noticeable change at some point.
-Participants should identify as female, trans, non-binary, or genderqueer – let's see all the great work you animators and designers have to offer!
-Final submissions must be between 5 seconds and 2 minutes long.
-All experience levels welcome.
-Collaborations welcome, but also this could be a cool opportunity to challenge yourself to do something outside your comfort zone!
-One entry per person/team
-Submissions should have subtitles if they're not in English
At the end, collected submissions will be curated into one long video! You can see last year's anthology here!
