"Way of the Hoof" Animator Competition

There's a new competition for the animators among you.
Six teams (of currently undefined size) of animators will be working together with a musician to demonstrate "the Way of the Hoof". Pony Martial Arts.
Once the teams are formed, there will be a timeframe of 12 weeks for them to make an animation for it from scratch.

Find an announcement video and a Gdocs file copypasta with the whole information after the break.
As always with these kind of things, spread the word.

Noe Idea Studios and Golden Creation Productions are proud to announce that we are opening a competition like no other. Six teams of animators will be going head to head to create a series of animations that will leave you breathless. Drawing inspiration from the Hong Kong cinema and Anime, these animations will be demonstrating the “Way of the Hoof,” that is to say, Pony Martial Arts. Each team will be working with a musician to create a seamless experience of sight and sound that will show the height of creativity. Once the teams are formed, there will be a 12 week period for them to create their animations from start to finish. After that, the videos will be brought forward for public voting. Once voting ends, the winning team will all receive handmade plushies of their respective OCs or a canon pony of their choice, and the prizes may increase even more depending on the response this generates.
We are now accepting applications for animators of all sorts, concept artists, sound technicians, musicians, and eventually voice actors! Animators are the main class we’re searching for right now since we already do have quite the roster of musicians to work with. Any type of animation is welcome, whether it be Flash, 3D, or even traditional frame-by-frame animation. We all look forward to the incredible works of art that this competition will aid in producing!
