The N.E.mation! 11 Top 10 production phase that took place over a period of three weeks was recently concluded on 9th December 2016. I was with them over a period of two weeks since I wasn’t able to visit the Top 10 production phase during the first week due to urgent family matters when I visited them on the 29th November, 2nd December and 6th December.
On my first visit to the N.E.mation! 11 Top 10 production phase, I was introduced to the five teams there were under my care. The 5 teams were
On my first visit to the Top 10 production phase on 29th November, it was an ice breaker for me since this was my first visit to my five teams under my care. I had a chat with each team to know more about them, the theme and what would their animation clip was all about. I introduced each team in an individual article post, giving my readers a sneak peak of the animation clip that they were going to produce.
In my next two visits on 2nd December and 6th December, I continued to have a chat with them on their progress and how they have been doing. During those two days, it was a delicate balance chatting with them, learning about their progress, encouraging them as well as not imposing too much time on them or interference on their production phase. I observed the five teams under me were very hardworking, putting in lots of effort and time, in getting their animation clip completed.
On 6th December 2016, the Top 10 teams played host to different groups of visitors from partners, vendors, teachers and their families. I followed and tagged along when the guests visited each of the five teams that I am covering for, listening to the girls presenting and sharing their theme, production and a peak into their digital animation progress. These group of young secondary school students showed maturity and confidence when presenting to the adult visitors. Being the ambassador for the five teams, I am really happy and proud of what they have completed during the production phase time frame, the maturity, confidence, public speaking and presentation were highly commendable for these group of young secondary school students.
On my last visit to the Top 10 production phase on 6th December 2016, I was able to catch a glimpse of their digital animation clips from the five teams, they had pretty much wrapped up three weeks of intense digital animation production hard work, getting ready for post production to combine all their individual hard work together into their final digital animation video clip that would be announced and showcase in early January 2017.
I would like to congratulate all Top 10 teams on a job well done! Good luck and all the best in the next phase of the N.E.mation! 11 competition!
There was a wrap up party for the Top 10 teams to celebrate after an intense and hardworking three weeks of digital animation production. I joined them for a short time over dinner and watched their first few fun games from the sidelines. They deserved their fun and enjoyment after putting in so much effort and time during these three weeks of digital animation production work.
This is not the end of N.E.mation! 11 season, the Top 10 teams videos are now in the post production phase. Once the videos are ready for viewing, I would be sharing more news and information on their digital animation works, stay tuned and keep a lookout for my updates! That would also be a downtown picnic event whereby the Top 10 teams would be showcasing their videos, introducing themselves and rallying for the public support in January 2017! Do keep a lookout for my update, more information coming soon!
