* All entries must include the Nooni Media logo in their loading screen, title sequence, or credit roll. Note: You don't have to make it super huge or say "Nooni Media Presents" -- This makes it look like the animation was created by them. Instead, say "Sponsored by Nooni Media"

* Excess nudity, profanity, and other things of profane nature are not allowed. (It cannot have a "Mature" rating.)
* 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.
* If you would like to parody, then use similar names instead of the real names - ie. "Smears" instead of "Sears". No copyrighted material whatsoever.
* The Audio portal is a great source for music, just be sure to get permission to use it for this contest!
* Any entry in violation of these rules will be disqualified.
.
.

This round should be interesting... I'm not sure what to expect here:

Will the reflection invoke the personal lives of the artists? What kind of stories will be told?

Good luck to the artists! I'm rooting for Hikarian myself :)

What the hell, I'll throw my hat into the ring for voice acting. If anyone needs someone with a wide range, I just got a nice new mic and I'm pretty creative. Lemme know if you need some help.

The only sample I have up right now is my open round entry, I played the purple lizard king guy.

I'll see if I can get something else up too. Just as an example, I do pretty good Arnold Schwarzenegger, yoda, pikachu, yogi bear impressions and many more.

Hey Fellow NATAers!

I was just notified, by the wonderful Hikarian, that there is a NATA skype call thing. I'm a very bad skype user, I think the last time I used it was about 4 years ago, and I have no idea how to connect to this thing. Hikarian said I was in the chat and people are trying to talk to me and test it but I can't see anything.

Can anyone help me out? Please???? :D

My skype is CroMagg, kept it easy haha.

Thanks in advance!

Progress report: I've got some stuff. Not a lot of stuff, but it's stuff.

Also, my exams are this week, which could mean either that I spend a lot of effort studying or that I could use the time that I have to study to animate. Hopefully I can strike a balance here.

Also, for everyone wondering, the next NATA collab had been decided. Your mission: Answer and animate this question:

http://www.mediafire.com/listen/epfhk2seeci2ssj/Sarcastic_VA _Question.mp3

You may use your own voice or contact one of the fine VA's on the site. If anyone has any questions, I dunno. Just announcing the Sarcastic VA Collab

For clarification, want us to include the question in our animation?

also if I had to rate my progress right now, it'd be maybe 5 chins out of 10

I say you can put the question in if you want to, if you want the extra practice, feel free.
