the competition

Introducing the Trick 17 Stop Motion Film Competition! An event to challenge you to control the chaos one frame at a time.

Trick 17 is a European phrase used to describe a solution to a problem that no one else thought of, is the least likely to work, and is therefore totally unexpected. This competition is all about compromise and surprise - the Trick 17.

Stop Motion is a generic term for an animation technique which makes static objects appear to move. The art is more than 100 years old, yet is used to this day in Oscar-winning films like Wallace and Gromit the National Film Board's The Neighbours and the original Star Wars trilogy. It works by shooting a single frame of an object, moving the object slightly, then shooting another frame. When the film runs continuously, the illusion of fluid movement is created with limitless possibilities.
