Once Upon an October, The Duke & The Duck started #FramesofFear, a spooky themed animation collaboration. Over 20 animators shared their skills by bringing to life their fear. Last year, we asked animators to show us their best spooky pranks. We're excited to bring it back for it's third annual round with a new theme! 


You are cordially invited to Monster Mash.
Come one, come all for a spooky fest celebrating Hallow’s Eve! No manner of magic spells, eerie beings, or ghastly creatures could stop this extravaganza.
We want you to design and animate your best (or worst) guest to the party. Or perhaps they're not a being at all. Design an object that you might encounter at a party like this!
At the end of the month, we'll take everyone's submissions and place them into a Monster Mash par-tay! For more details on the prompt, check out the project specs.

Final submission deadline: OCT 28th
Hallow’s Eve happy hour & showcase: OCT 30th


Ready to send your monster to the big party? Upload your files through our submission link below. Please use this link versus emailing us. It helps us keep everything in one place and make sure your monster makes it on guest list. If you have any questions or issues with uploading, email us at .
