“Animation Sensation” Season Two
Are you the next Animation Sensation?
Note from the Hosts:
We were intrigued by the finale of Season one. Not only did we do something impulsive and allow a three-person finale, but the final three were extremely talented and their potential is limitless. For those who did not pay attention to season one, the final three were TheatreBound31, AudreyGoLightly13, and Nori Elle, who emerged the victor. We anticipate the competition this time around, and we expect an even more exciting outcome of it. We hope you will all consider auditioning!
Auditions have not changed much since season one. Simply record a 30 second – 1 minute ACAPELLA snippet of a song from any animated feature ever. This includes Disney, Anime, etc. When finished, we ask that you send the .MP3 file to us @ AnimationSensation@Live.com
We will record an audition episode after every Five (5) auditions we receive. We will be accepting a minimum of 12 participants, and a maximum of 21. The auditions will close once we achieve a number of participants in between the two guidelines mentioned above.
Exceptions to Audition:
To award the winner of Animation Sensation Season One, Nori Elle, we will be awarding audition immunity to her in the case that she wishes to take part. That being said, we will not show any bias whatsoever towards her if she does choose to compete.
Themes and Immunities
For those who do not remember season one, this is the basic outline of the show. Each week, those who are accepted past auditions will struggle to stay in the rankings. The different themes paired with each week will need to be abided by in order for our judging to be most accurate. We will provide you with any resources you may need (such as song examples for the most difficult themes), and the rest will be up to you. Immunity rounds are OPTIONAL, and can only help you. They CANNOT hurt you. If you decide to take part in the Immunity Challenge, you stand a chance of becoming immune from elimination for that week’s round ONLY.
So what are the Themes this time around, you ask?
Round One – Competitors Choice
