Read the rules a bit closer next time - "Don't edit the sound file (beyond adding silence before/after if needed - please try to keep the extra time to a minimum, winning eCritiques will not include added time)"

Shiladitto Gupto:

As far as I remember you are not allowed to change the audio timing. You are suppose to animate it as the way you get iy.

Aaron McGriff:

the audio can't be cut up like this

Laurent Châtellier:

Did you insert pauses in the audio ? I think it's against the competition rules.

Felipe Navarro:

Slow movements, and dont mess with the audio!
