You probably have seen it, the clips / animation works of previous years’ teams, during trailer time at cinemas and on free-to-air TV. With training and guidance, students with no prior experience in animation were able to produced 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! 🙂
Aside from creating something amazing with their time and effort, winning a trip and enjoying time with their teammates, will be something they will always remember!

Wish you have a chance to be there like them?
You’ll be glad to know N.E.mation! is back for its 9th season, ready for more amazing and creative clips / animations to be created by your team and other students in Singapore. Yay!
For this year’s theme, students are asked to use their creativity in producing storylines centered around the central idea of believing in Singapore and building a secure and cohesive nation, united with determination (refer below: Because We Believe).
I feel it is comparatively more challenging than previous years themes but it is more meaningful too. Since the clips / animations will likely be ready early 2015, you can see it as a 50th birthday present for our Nation, Singapore.
And as always, the animation clips produced by the top 10 finalist teams will be judged by a panel comprising industry professionals. Members of the public will be able to vote for their three favourite clips at www.nemation.sg, Facebook or via SMS (announced at a later date) and the winning team will win a coveted trip to visit renowned animation studios in the USA!
Up for the challenge? 🙂
If you are all geared up after viewing previous teams’ work, pep talk from me (:P) / family members / school teachers… would like to make your storylines come to LIVE with your school mates aka good friends and win a fun trip to USA with them…
If you aren’t sure where or how to start, don’t start worrying.
