William Shatner is about to get a little more animated. Montreal,Canada-based animation software maker Toon Boom Animation has launched the Myouterspace Contest, hosted by the Shat himself.
The contest, which brings together Toon Boom, sci-fi social network Myouterspace and San Francisco’s Academy of Art University, gives artists the opportunity to showcase their animation skills by creating an original video based on a short William Shatner monologue featuring myouterspace.com.
Participants are required to use the Personal Learning Edition of Toon Boom Animate or Animate Pro to design and direct the animated William Shatner short using one of three audio voiceovers. The contest runs until December 1, 2010, when a round of final voting online will decide the prizes, including scholarships for two online courses provided by Academy of Art University.
