Held in November 2015, the Sarcastic Animation Jam 2016 challenged animators around Newgrounds to write, develop and produce a complete animated short in 2 days using a number of preset prompts.
Out of the prompts ‘fishbowl’ and ‘broken window’ came Railtoons Animation’s entry Nothing Gold Can Stay, a heartbreaking short following the nihilistic life of a goldfish.
While a panel of judges deliberated, Newgrounds users were invited to rank their favourite entries for the Audience Choice Award, keeping in mind all entries were entirely developed in 2 days or less.
I’m thrilled to announce Nothing Gold Can Stay has picked up both the Audience Choice Award and Judges 1st Place, a solid achievement for such a rapidly produced animation.
