This past week I made two posts (1, 2) highlighting all of the (published) NATA entrants. Due to the massive turnout and high quality, the tournament has been expanded to 36 slots!

There's one person who didn't enter NATA this year but voiced a ton of movies and totally needs the spotlight:

Chongo!

I really really really recommend following the voice artists on animations you like, because they are a big part of why you like them. They also collab with tons of unknown animators.

To follow someone, click the pink heart next to their name or at the top of their user page. BTW there was a bug where the heart graphic wasn't updating when you click it - liljim just fixed that! Also, when you favorite someone from their user page, the number FINALLY increments in real-time. SO SATISFYING.

Here are some non-NATA participants who shared great stuff with us this week. Please follow the ones you like!

Some plugs to wrap things up:

That's awesome news. Last year's NATA had so much great stuff. Didn't get around to check this year's entries yet.

I really really really recommend following the voice artists on animations you like, because they are a big part of why you like them. They also collab with tons of unknown animators.

Finally someone who gives our precious voice actors... a voice.

To follow someone, click the pink heart next to their name or at the top of their user page. BTW there was a bug where the heart graphic wasn't updating when you click it - liljim just fixed that! Also, when you favorite someone from their user page, the number FINALLY increments in real-time. SO SATISFYING.

It's the little things, right? Satisfying is the perfect description. Thanks to liljim, my OCD acts up a little less now.

Hey Tom, whenever I try to add a movie to my favorites, it shows the checkmark on the heart, but never actually adds it to my favorites. This is for anything - music, flash, art.
