July Nac 2011: Zombie Apocalpse!!! 2011-07-02 01:35:47 Reply

PLEASE DO NOT POST COMMENTS IN THIS THREAD! Instead redirect them to the NAC General Discussion Thread

WELCOME TO THE SEVENTH OFFICIAL NAC!

The NAC Team is pleased to bring you July's theme: ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE SOUNDTRACK!!

Zombie Apocalypse music you say? Why that could cover a lot of things!

yes, yes it could. So here are your sub-themes in which the song sould take place in apocalypse-wise:

1) Zombie Clown Carnival "IT" theme*
2) Silent Hill-like Zombie Theme
3) High speed chase Zombie Theme
4) Zombies in the Forest Theme
5) Medical viral outbreak "Resident Evil" style Zombie Theme
6) Classic Halloween "rise out of the grave" Zombie Theme
7) Hilbilly "house of 1000 corpes" style Zombie Theme
8)Cheesy "attack from mutant zombies from other space" Zombie Theme
9) Parody-like "Shaun of the dead" Zombie Theme
10) Zombies are milling about/attacking/sneaking into the room Theme
11) ZEST RIDDLE music inspired Zombie Theme**

* Bonus points will be given if you make a creepy carnival/clown song reministant of the clown movie "IT"
** type in "zest riddle music" into youtube for this.

Contest Focus

Basically this contest theme is going to focus on /horror/cheesiness/entertainment value - don't be afraid to go nuts - use real zombie moans, real gore sounds, do whatever! Just make us laugh, or scare the shit out of us! :P

We also want to encourage artists to collaborate with each other, but remember that we can only award the prize to one person, so you'll have to keep that in mind if anyone else from ngs collabs with you, so be sure to mention them and if you win I can tell Tom to split the prize.

Also focus as always will be on the highest quality - so this means best mixing/mastering practices... best vocals, best USE of vocals, etc etc. So please don't ask me stupid questions like "if this isn't mix/mastered the best is that ok?" NO it's not - stop being a lazy ass and mix your songs properly please.

Also ALL ENTRIES HAVE TO HAVE BEEN MADE WITHIN THE MONTH OF THE CONTEST.

---

Examples

I have decided to provide you with absolutely no examples for this contest - you have been provided with themes - if you must do some research on them through google and/or youtube. We are giving you scenarios - you may pick any one of them, or 2 if you choose to make 2 submissions. I want to see what you can pull forth out of your own twisted little minds while not replicating something that's already existing!

Covers and Remixes

Not allowed for this competition - please make your own - you can model styles off songs but no covers or remixes please.

One exception to this rule is if you do a remix or parody of an existing original song on newgrounds - but it MUST be an original song. We generally want to see what you can do on your own.

---

Voices

Voices WILL be used, provided that:
1) It is not sampled from copyrighted recordings.
2) It is 100% your own recording and creation (or someone who has given you permission)
3) You can ask another artist or group to provide vocals, as long as all material is newly created for your submission, and you provide the details of the vocalist(s), who they are.

Instruments & Collabbing

Recordings of instruments are great! If you do kudos to you! Recording of vocals is super great too. As a result if someone assists you with vocals you may include them as part of your song - just make sure to mention them in your song description. The prize however will only go to the user that submitted the song.

---

Deadlines

All tracks must be in by the deadline. Please check your Newgrounds in-boxes regularly. If you have a problem with reaching the deadlines, please contact us as soon as possible, and we will review your case.

Submissions must not contain any material deemed offensive.

Last but not least, remember to have fun! Don't get too competitive and/or elitist, or I may have to bash some heads! :P
Fucked up people, this is your time to shine!

Set Dates & Deadlines For Contest

From now till 11:59 PM EST Friday July 22nd: Submissions will be accepted.

Sunday, June 24th: The 8 finalists will be announced, and their submissions will be closely scrutinized and reviewed by our finalist judges. NO BUTTHURT WHINING PLEASE.

also no pulling a Kanye West please.

Monday, August 1st: The top 4 will be announced by our finalist judges, as well as frontpaged the next Monday by one of the mods. (if no other big contest comes first)

---

The finalist judges for the Zombie Apocalypse NAC are...

To be determined - I will be taking offers from anyone interested - so PM me if you are interested. We prefer judges who have been around the block a few times on newgrounds - as evidenced by the all-star lineup we had in the past - so this month we are looking for.. fuck.. I dunno.. committed people who don't suck. I will keep you posted.

Also Tylandril (aka Realmguys aka Tyler) has offered to be a standby judge - which means he is free for me to use in the finalist judging if I feel his skills are appropriate for the contest judging-wise :) He will be most likely helping in this contest.

Evil-dog has also been consistently helping in judging and thus I will also mention him as a standby judge. At the end of the day reliable judges are what is most important. As well as judges that I already have years worth of experience with also helps.

If you want to be a sweeper judge, please talk to BrokenDeck.

Also keep in mind that as a finalist judge you only have ONE WEEK to judge the 8 submissions, so if this is an issue for you, or you think you might not be able to pull through, then PLEASE DON'T OFFER!

We will pick the top three from the 8 finalists.

This is a song with an episodal structure. At first, there's the threat of the zombie lurking around, not quite certain where, then there's the calmth before the storm, and then shit hits the fan.


I dare you, I doubledare you to click this image.

POSTING THIS HERE SO YOU SEE IT (and get a fair chance at entering something as the one above is not acceptable). You cant submit something which wasnt made for the contest.

"ALL ENTRIES HAVE TO HAVE BEEN MADE WITHIN THE MONTH OF THE CONTEST" Continue all discussions in the discussion thread.

Also most likely a mix of a few genres.
Distinctly there is a high speed chase in this.

I decided I might as well make something for this. It's pretty gloomy/depressing sounding.
