• Summer Funimation Screenwriting Competition Winners

    That crazy Summer Funimation project over on Ponychan is still chuggin along!  The top screenwriters and storyboarders have finally been released after weeks of digging through the piles of entries they recieved.  After the break, you will find them all, along with more information on what is coming next!

    Greetings from the Bit Bucket Brigade!

    After hours of debating we have come to you with the winners of both the screenwriting and storyboard competitions. These winners weren’t chosen lightly, we were amazed at the quality of our entries. Unfortunately we could only choose one winner for the screenwriting competition, but we made sure to give the runner ups a nod; there’s also a few honorable mentions as well.

    The storyboard competition lent more leeway so we decided to crown not just the previously announced two but an additional four more. We are happy to announce a total of six new members of the Bit Bucket Brigade who will be contributing in several fields that involve their artistic creativity.
