Well an online TV service here in the UK is offering sci-fi fans the chance to see their character come to life. When I was sent this information, it wasn’t just something I wanted to share with my fellow Amazing Stories members, but something I may actually have to enter myself.
To celebrate the autumn streaming releases of Avengers Assemble, The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man, Now TV has created a competition to give budding artists and superhero fans a chance to bring their own characters to life in a professional short animation.
All entires are uploaded to the dedicated website www.nowtvsuperheroes.co.uk along with a few vital stats on the super powers and weaknesses. All artwork is going to be displayed in a Facebook gallery and the top three with the most likes will be made into a short animation which will premiere on NOW TV’s YouTube channel. Don’t worry if your drawing skills aren’t up to scratch. The first 500 people to sign up to a free NOW TV trial through the competition will receive a free custom-made t-shirt of their superhero.
The competition runs until the 9 October. For those of you not in the UK, what would your superhero look like and what powers/weaknesses would they have?
