cAN yOu beliEVE iT???
It has been 7 (ultra 7!!!) weeks since the start of N.E.mation, and to us, it has been one of the most wonderful and amazing experiences we ever had (in our sad, miserable 14 years of existence)
Every single milestone was precious to us….. and we started our journey with faith the size of a seed. And our confidence sprouted when this happened
Once again, we pushed further with whatever we had, focusing on our seed idea, which was at the time “Bricks”
Thankfully, we scraped by into the Top 20.
At the time, Mr. Joshua mentioned that because one team had dropped out somehow, another was luckily added into the list. We thought that was us, because Mr. Joshua said that our story wasn’t good enough. It was, quote,” depending on how good the rest of the competition was.” Meaning to say that we got in just because others may not have done as well. This made us extremely terrified, because we were currently at the bottom of the Top 20. If we didn’t buck up, we would be gone for sure.
So we pushed harder than we did before, running into many arguments, petty quarrels and cold-shoulders along the way. But. We did it.
Top 10 Pitching ^^^^^^
A part of our Original Storyboard ^^
TOP 10!!!!! ^^^^
To be honest, Production period was more Fun than Tough.
We made many new discoveries about ourselves, and the animation softwares
on the last day of production, Chris’s computer got hacked by a virus, rendering all her files useless and unable to open. It was a huge freakout. The virus could spread to the main server, causing EVERY TEAM’S progress and files to be completely lost, till a ransom is paid. Thank goodness, Miss Yinghui had recently saved all of Chris’s Files and Mr. Joshua was able to remove computers from the main server in time, so the virus didn’t spread. Everything was back to normal X).
( Chris cried because she was so afraid that everyone’s progress would have been completely lost )
We had a big problem.
Because our animation was made out of 100% 2D Software, we had no props, backdrops, or anything to show off during the open house. However, we made a discovery that…hardly anyone was there during the picnic and 90% of the votes we got were from walking around in public anyway so…….. Yeah!
It was great fun sharing our Animation clip and experiences with the public! We had actually prepared a script prior to the interview. but we didn’t have to use it. But here is a short exert :
THE MOST STRESSFUL CNY EVER!
Including getting the courage to ask distance relatives, heading out a malls multiple times EACH campaigning or votes, handling rejection everytime we get turned down, sacrificing reunions to get votes. This is only a few. You name it, we’ve probably done it.
