The production of the animation have finally concluded last week!
By the looks of the pictures and blog entries I saw online, the students all seemed to have enjoyed thoroughly. I wouldn’t be surprised though, they deserved the massive celebration after all the hard work put in. According to past years’ tradition, the wrap-party is a celebrated fanfare with the entire lounge filled with balloons, buffet dinner, games, sparkling drinks, and this year even had pinatas! So, so awesome.
Team leader Clarence was busy preparing the content on their Wacom tablet.
I couldn’t make it to the wrap-party, but managed to catch up with my teams on Monday’s open house. Families came to visit in the evening and I got to meet some of the parents too. When I arrived, the boys were still in the midst of setting up what they want to showcase.
The boys’ teacher, Ms Xie, was helping out in their tent and were teaching the boys how to be gentleman by offering me their snacks (pictured above). Haha. Brayden, in the background was still playing with their makeshift football.
Here’s a screenshot of Team Acrylics’ for their showcase – animated Brayden, aloe vera plant, simplified animation with self-composed song and the old-school coolie warehouse.
Before the parents/families went around to visit the exhibits, they were shown the process of selection and the scope of N.E.mation.
Brayden’s family came earliest and we watched Brayden gave a presentation on the story concept. His dad also found the animation entertaining and engaging, which I think is great!
Brayden is the most confident among the three boys and he did really well with the sharing session! He was also the only who said they are confident of their work and winning the competition. The two others are worried about the public voting, so PLEASE VOTE FOR THEM IN JANUARY & FEBRUARY!
Why do you think you don’t stand a high chance of winning?
Because we’re an all-boys team, but the other girl-groups have beauty.
Oh, so it’s relative? The lack of beauty in your group will determine low voting numbers?
Aiyah, girls have more leverage.
Hahaha, that’s the boys’ logic, and i hope to prove them wrong.
While waiting for more visitors, Kok Hai wasted no time and continued touching up the animation. Even with all the long hours and late nights they spent working, the boys remained chirpy and energetic. The only time I saw them being awkward and shy was when they have to present in front of crowds. 🙂
This is also one of those awkward moments, when they have to take a picture with me. Lol.
In the final week of production, ACRYLICS are left with putting the animated characters with the background.
For some reason, I think Clarence’s brother is rather intimidating… such pressure.
Anyway, the boys are still very active on social media so please help to “LIKE” them on the Facebook App Top 10 Teams! Note that during the voting period, you will also stand to win attractive prizes such as iPad Air 2, iPad Mini etc.
So happy for ACRYLICS that they have endured the toughest three weeks, congratulations! 😀
