The 11 Second Club is a website directed to the animation community. Each month it provides an audio segment with a duration of (you guessed) 11 seconds from movies or TV series, and then, animators from all countries, skill levels, techniques and styles, make an interpretation of it. At the end of the month, users can vote and the winner gets a critique from a professional animator from AnimSchool.

This month I decided to give it a try. I had a lot of fun animating freely, with no other restriction than the audio and its duration. But this also means being your own critic, your own director, and having the ability to watch your own piece with an objective point of view. This…can get a lot trickier than you think.
