- N A T A - Semi-finals!! Aug. 19th, 2012 @ 11:17 PM Reply

We are now down to the final 4 contestants, who have fought long and hard to make it to this point!!

Entrants will now compete against fellow Master Animators head to head, who you must defeat by creating a superior animation in order to move on to the Final Round!

*** The Semi-Finals ***

The Theme for the Semi-Finals is...

*******************************
How to Break the Universe
*******************************

.
.
.

**************

* Absolutely NO copyright material is allowed without permission. If you use copyrighted music or other material in your animation, you MUST get the permission of the original creator of that material.

You can break the universe if its a window and your a higher being playing baseball carelessly close to it.

It's always a toss up. I doubt anyone could have perfectly predicted it would have come down to the current animators.
