Hi All,

So we've just gotten confirmation from GMU that we CANNOT go on as planned tonight.
The GMU Animation Festival is hereby postponed until a later date (which will be announced as soon as we can re-schedule).

We'd like to thank everyone who submitted, and we promise that we'll get back to all of you VERY soon on whats going on.
Till then, enjoy the snow, and keep the renders burning.



12 December 2005, 09:06 PM
Yeah everyone, as Roberto has posted, we've had to postpone the event due to the snow storm.

I'll be sure to post back in here as soon as we have a new date set for the event.
