The idea behind this is that there are 5 lucky winners...1 of which wins by a voting system...and 4 who are selected by a panel. All 5 are given $100,000 NZ to make the idea into a proper film.

Re: Animation WIP: While They Slept

Well...I kept on going like some sort of a mad thing here with this. I've now got another one minute nine seconds.

This next bit of music lasts quite a bit longer, so this is going to be quite lengthy. I'm definitely insane.
