Congrats to the Top 10 teams of N.E.mation! 7!

I'm really honoured to be chosen as one of the Ambassador for N.E.mation this year.
So being an Ambassador, give me a chance to  actually get to know more about N.E.mation and also  go behind the scene to know the contestants better and what are some of the challenges they may encounter during the production.

  • What is N.E.mation?
    N.E.mation! is a digital animation competition organised by Nexus for youths to express their thoughts on Total Defence. Into its seventh season this year, the competition has proven highly successful, with 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.

    N.E.mation! celebrated its 6th year anniversary in 2011

    This year, students are asked to use their creativity to produce storylines 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 such as Melvin Tan (Senior Animator, Blue Sky Studios). In addition, the public can vote for their three favourite clips come January 2013 at www.nemation.sg, Facebook or via SMS. The winning team will win a coveted trip to visit a renowned animation studio in the USA!

    The Theme: Together We Overcome

    “We are able to enjoy what we have in Singapore today because of the determination and hard work of generations of Singaporeans over the years. They have stuck together through good times and bad, overcoming many challenges and hardships along the way to bring us to the present. We will have new dreams, new opportunities, and new challenges. Many things are different now, but as long as we remain united as one, we can continue to succeed in building a secure and bright future for ourselves and our children. Because together we can.”

    Why “Together We Overcome”? That’s because 2013 marks the 10th year since SARS hit Singapore. Hence, this N.E.mation! 7 theme is one that serves as a reminder to what happened then, yet at the same time instil confidence in Singaporeans that we are prepared for any unpredictable national crises and we can overcome these challenges successfully.
