Hi folks –
Nick also creates tutorials, but what makes him stand out is his helping others to find inspiration through themselves. He runs a contest every few weeks called Five-Second Project, where you have to create a 5-second animation based on a phrase or idea that he throws out there. Not all, or even most, of the work produced in each contest is fantastic, but there are always a few really inspirational pieces submitted. His latest contest is called “Kick the Bucket” and you can find it here.
You see a lot of tutorials out there (my own included) whose results people often mimic without changing in the slightest. And that’s cool, if it helps you pay the bills. But a contest like this, with just a spark for an idea, can really help people bring out their own creativity, and take their work to the next level.
Way to go Nick!
