Back in June we started a series of competitions in hopes to create an original NG animation. We started with the writing competition, in which I was the judge.

@Unabated 's script won first place and we moved on to the concept art competition. Unabated now became the judge and he chose @MrShmoods submission. (Seen below)

With MrShmoods joining the judging team we moved on to the audio contest (theme song) and the voice acting contest. For the audio contest we had @SplatterDash come out on top and for the voice acting competition @Glass-of-Awesome was victorious. 


At each step of the competition the winners joined in the judging process. Your judges are:





@Fro (In a support role)


Create a trailer or teaser of the episode. Read the script and include some of the voices from the top 3 winners found in this post here, use the theme song in some manner, and use the concept art and writing for inspiration for the animation. Feel free to contact any of the judges for more information or additional resources. Here is a playlist of all of the concept art, audio, and voices created throughout the contest if you are looking for some inspiration.

Here are a few more voice takes in case my original reel is hard to work with.

Here's a reel for the character Ed

Here's a reel for the Janitor

Have fun everyone!

What would be the ideal length for the teaser? 30 seconds? A minute?

Also, @Glass-of-Awesome could you enable downloads for you audio?

Thank you for asking that. I meant to put that somewhere in the original post and it must have slipped my mind. After asking a couple of the judges I got a couple of answers, but for the most part we think it should be somewhere in the 30 second - 2 minute range. (2 minutes or longer being an extreme, but we just don't want to limit people's creative ability)

So really there's not a range you HAVE to stay in. Points won't be taken away or added due to length, but we should hope for around a 30 second teaser and above.
