at 8am in the morning, we were at NYP and ready for battle- or so we thought.
but the moment we opened our ToomBoom (animation) files and started on animating once more, the depressing sad spirit sinks in. not that we dislike animating. it’s just, when you go for a full day’s work for a week and a half, you energy drains out really really fast.
we went from snacking, to singing, to crying and chugging coffee.
in the midst of the hardcore work, today, Dr Jia Jia and Big Bro visited NEmation set! Dr Jia Jia was super cute and there were camera men following him around as he learns more about NEmation, animation and us Top 10! Teams too. when he came round our tent, we managed to teach him some basics (credits to tong whose great with kids)
it was a nice break from staring at the computer, definitely.
BUT THIS WAS WHEN THE PAINS BEGAN
/cries out in agony
because when we went back to our tent after having our last group shot with Dr Jia Jia and Big Bro (yes, do look out for that in the near future ;D) we found tricia’s and tong’s com shut off completely. and yes, that is absolutely not what should have happened.
after panicking for a bit, we realised that somebody had accidentally plugged out the main power source to their coms and tho they didn’t lose all their work, some data still went missing and it was a really sad moment for all of us.
we kinda had no choice so they had to start off from whatever they had left.
we’re sure it was intentional of the person to pull out that plug so it’s nobody’s fault but it brought our mood to a new low ((sighs))
after lunch work dragged on while we re edited our scenes over again so that it had the best effect on the animation entirely overall
chua, tong and tricia even OT today until 9plus to complete their work. grace had issues so she couldn’t stay but she had a deadline to rush all the same so basically, it was a painful day for us.
OF COURSE, there were still small moments where we had fun like when we took our toilet breaks and had a good laugh at lame puns and jokes (mainly sponsored by our deerest tong) once in a while chua and grace made some too while tricia was the one that laughed at them all.
AND not to forget thanks for putting this up to prevent anymore accidents:
it was a long day but we must never forget our promo!! 🙂
