In the next released series called “Dominion X: Level 2“, they had the association of truly influential people. Among them were the musician Steve Aokiactor Seth Green and U.S. animation studio/production company Stoopod Buddy Stoodios.

This collection provided the opportunity to vote for the conclusion of each new stop-motion animated segment produced on a weekly basis.
