When you are entered into the contest, I save a copy of every file and re-host it on the NATA Open Round page. Your entry is safe.

Do we have to wait until Monday to see who made it to the next round?

Sorry guys, but with the limited time i had (full time job) I ended up getting too ambitious and not being able to finish in time. However, this means that this has become a personal project, one which I will fill with much more quality than it would have had if i had finished it on time.

My contract at Atomic Cartoons ends just a week too late! If it had ended earlier i probably would have finished this on time, but as of next Friday i will have all the time in the world to work on this. Look forward to it in the future (if you want to), and good luck to all of you on your NATA submissions!

Hey all, sorry I've not been catching up on this thread.

Gotta say, all these submissions are looking fucking fabulous. I'm kinda surprised I beat the superiorly animated Time Circles which really deserved better than daily 5th. Looking forward to the rounds :D


A rather disgusting-looking git that should have been disposed of ages ago.

Same here, i had a 4 min animation planned with 2 min of just pure dialog.

If my half finished submission somehow passes me on to the next round. I'm making a max 2 min animation and not to long dialogs...


If i had a goat, i'd probably have one more goat then you. Unless you're a farmer or something...

Sorry I haven't been keeping up, I've been super busy at work. I did turn in my picks just now though! I've gotta say, you guys did fantastic this year! At least 3 of you managed to get an emotional response out of me (you may know who you are!) but hot damn were gonna have a good tournament this year! Work SHOULD slow down again soon (we release our game on Tuesday actually.... No I don't work for Blizzard! lol) so hopefully then I can be more attentive to these forums. Great job guys! Keep up the good work those who move on!

The judges selected their top 16 entries in order from best to worst, and entries were scored on an inverted point system based on placement in a judge's list. A few judges entered 18, and so the base number of 18 was used for scoring. For example, an entry in the #1 spot of a list received 18 points, while #2 is 17 points, #3 is 16, and so on until #18 is 1 point. Points were accumulated from all judges and sorted to create the list above, which is ordered from most points received to least.

You will each be awarded $15 at the end of the contest for getting in! Best of luck in the Novice Round! Brackets and match ups will be announced at that time.

Welp, I knew I wasn't going to pass, but watching all those amazing animations are an inspiration to keep improving.

I still feel good to have participated. That was only my second animation and I know that it was far from perfect. If there is another NATA next year and I have the time, I will surely participate again.

So good luck to everyone!

I knew I wasn't going to move on to the next round, but being in this turnament was a great experience!
This was my longest animation and 3rd one I had ever made. I learned a lot by watching all of your entries and I will definately improve from this experience!
Good luck to everyone who moved on!

Oh my, I made it to the next round? I am of course happy to be able to participate in another round, but on the other hand, it's gonna be a veeeeery busy month. Well, I guess I'm not the only one. This is going to be very exciting, looking forward to it.

Anyways, it's late at night where I am (damn time zones), so I'll just have to wait till tomorrow with seeing the theme and such.

Good luck to all the 31 other contestants, as always, I can't wait to see all those great animations!

Nighty, night! Zzzzzzzz....

No, actually this in an alternate timeline. In the far off space year of 1999 from which you're actually from, you didn't get through. In fact, you got like... all 0s in every criteria.

In other news, I misspelled JerrodStorm as JarrodStorm. NG BBS doesn't allow post editing, so this is the correction. It's JerrodStorm.
