N.E.mation! 9 Production Visit #2 – ACRYLICS

I went back to Nanyang Polytechnic to check on the boys’ progress last week and from what I can see, they are on track with their schedule and have covered quite a bit of work.

Brayden was demonstrating how they have animated the cropped photographs to achieve exaggerated expressions. That was done using a software called CrazyTalk Animator 2.

First Clarence had to “mark” out the features on the face, then Brayden took over and manipulated a particular region using the tools on the right screen. I can imagine it being a lot of fun to distort friends’ faces using the software. 😀

Like this.

Within a week, I also noticed new random additions in ACRYLICS’ tent such as funny cut-outs, and captions. Apparently their tent will be hijacked from time to time when they’re out of lunch etc.  Random stuff was placed and they had to go on “treasure hunts”.

With the leader in command, Clarence demanded guided his team to stick to the timeline to ensure that the animation can be completed on time.

Kok Hai, you better finish this tonight or you don’t get to go home.”

I kid. On an unrelated note, I spotted this on the desk and asked who drew it. This is drawn by their instructor, Jonathan. These guys ah, all so talented one. #envy

Week 2 flew past and the boys worked on piecing the limbs and costumes to each characters and it’s tedious work!

Lastly, the boys are really active on social media and maintaining their NEmation blog, so for a more immediate update on your schoolmates’ progress, you can read their blog entries HERE.

Don’t forget your daily motto —
