Are clay animations acceptable? I understand the claymation phase has long since become obsolete but I feel like I may be able to pull something off.

It's not obsolete, and yeah I don't see why you can't do stop-frame animation, this isnt TOFA anymore, the flash label has been removed.

Precisely. So long as it can be submitted to NewGrounds and can be considered an Animation, it's good.

Cough cough.

I haven't submitted any flash animation onto newgrounds since 2005, so if I follow through I'll be blowing off the mould, dust, and cobwebs.

Sure, I'll give this a shot.
I mean, there's only like a 1% chance of me even getting through the Open round but hey! No harm in trying I guess.

I started that flash like 3 weeks ago animated not even 10 seconds lol. I plan to finish it. But with no deadline I don't feel as motivated. I'm doing this for the discipline!

I'm torn between 3 AMAZING ideas. I think I'm going to go for the one thats easiest to execute and start storyboarding :)
Hopefully my Cintiq gets here before I begin animating!

FINGERS CROSSED

Good luck to everyone, Although I see many of you will not need it!
Healthy competition this year yikes!
Also are there over 32 people participating? I haven't keep count after the 2nd page of the original thread

As a note: If 32+ people don't enter, the contest will default to the top 16 entrants instead of 32, and one round will be eliminated from the contest. I am hoping that word will get out enough for us to get 32, however :)

Can we have celebrities in it? Or do we have to change the names a little bit?

Most of them are copyright to the media.

When it comes to voices, we can have voice actors right? What about friends who are musicians and can make music for you?

*cracks knuckles*

Well, time to get off my lazy bum and animate something. It's probably going to suck and not get done, but whatever. The worst that could happen is that I get something done, and that's not a bad thing. Besides, this theme is awesome.

Now to wait for inspiration...

I don't feel up for creating a funny short, I would rather make something emotionally crushing.
I wonder if it would still be able to score "entertainment" points. If done right it should be no problem, right?

Also, it says no "Mature" rating but I would still aim to create something for the more mature audience instead of going the random jokes and comedy way. Cartoon Violence is allowed to a certain extend correct? It's not that necessary but I wouldn't wanna go without it.

Looking back It's been a rather sad year and I would really want to express some of these emotions in all of my entries (implying I will make more than one, or one even)
