May Contest Theme

This month's theme is a rube goldberg machine. A rube goldberg machine is a group of strings, levers, marbles, fans, cars, dominos, and so on that finishes with a final result, whatever that might be. It's all about how complicated you can make a simple task. Why water your plant when you can make a whole rube goldberg machine do it for you, but in the most complicated way? Something for nothing. This is a great way to practice all the animation principles in one video. Go all out! Be creative and practice your animation skills! Make sure to read the contest rules before you start.
