So, i am sure you guys have seen the widget bar on my right side.
Yes, yes, N.E.Mation 7 has begun, and i am the lucky Ambassador for N.E.Mation 7 this time round! Wooots!
For those of you who have yet to know what is N.E.mation is, basically it is a digital animation competition organised by Nexus for youths to express their thoughts on Total Defence.
Coming into its seventh season this year, the competition has garnered more than 7,500 students participating since its inception in 2007. With training and guidance, students with no prior experience in animation have been able to produce clips of broadcast quality to screen on free-to-air television. Some of these clips were even selected for international animation festivals and won several awards.
This year, students are asked to use their creativity to produce storyline centred on the theme of “Together We Overcome”. The animation clips produced by the top 10 finalist teams will be judged by a panel comprising industry professionals. In addition, the public (YOU!) can vote for their three favourite clips come January 2013 at http://www.nemation.sg, Facebook or via SMS. The winning team will win a coveted trip to visit a renowned animation studio in the USA!
So, in my duties as an Ambassador, I have the privilege to meet the top 10 finalist teams. And I have also been assigned to 2 special teams to help them with their virginal N.E.mation journey this time round. The teams, (All These Ships) and (SARScastic) will be needing my help in introducing them to Singapore, rallying votes for their videos and to keep them alive and motivated throughout this journey!
