So I did this essay, for school and got back my grade for it just now. Since my friend wanted to read it and some others, I figured I’ll post it here since it does have to do with narration, design and etc. Oh yeah, it was a pretty good grade.
There is much room for improvement and the lecturer did give some feedback such as differentiating between ‘reward’ cut scenes and interactive movies since itcould warrant further discussion along with a more original intro and conclusion. Still… YAY!
Hey remember my post about the MAP earlier on and that you had to email to ask for the latest application form? I emailed and since I’m sure it might get spammy or anything to them, I’ve decided to upload it so you guys can have it too.
Oddly, I can’t find the announcement of MAP on the NAC site. I got the first info via my sgarts email so it was posted by someone who had the “official” statement and all. How weird. I must have missed the webpage or something.
Oh yeah, since I was interested in plays, I asked to clarify regarding the “one play” in their requirements for the people to peruse. Apparently it can be any length as long as it shows how you write and all. So a ten minute or a sixty minute one etc is pretty fine. Of course, any further questions just email them at email@example.com .
Soooo I don’t usually blog about my school assignments or the exact submissions but I figured I’d post one here today! It’s a machinima where I used the game called The Movies and made the characters… act! Heck, in depth description can be found on the Singapore Machinima website. There’s film festivals and all for this too.
NAC’s Mentor access project is up again! I’m going to try for the playwriting bit. And here’s copy pasting the info!
The Mentor Access Project (MAP), organised by National Arts Council, is now open for applications for its seventh intake starting in July 2009. MAP is an 18-month mentorship programme to ensure the sustained development of emerging writers by providing them with mentorship opportunities and ongoing critical feedback.
Apart from having the privilege of being tutored by an established writer/playwright, participants will enjoy opportunities for peer interaction and to foster stronger connections with the Singapore literary scene.
Selected applicants can also participate in Masterclass Talks and workshops conducted by established writers, public readings, as well as discussion forums and talks covering the business of publishing, such as copyrights and literary representations (agents).
The New Book Initiative enables promising original works submitted by MAP participants to be considered for book publication, in conjunction with NAC’s Publishing and Translation Grant. This is on top of enjoying publishing opportunities in an online literary journal to be produced by MAP at the end of the mentorship period.
Application is now open to Singaporean citizens or permanent residents, aged 18 years and above, writing in the field of poetry, prose or drama in any of the four official languages.
No, in real life their light sabres don’t glow that good due to the sunlight.
They’ll be at the parade again this year, doing their performance! The Jedi and the Sith. Pay no mind to Darth Vader and the storm troopers. Okay, you can pay them mind since they’re actually our pals from Singapore’s 501st (the largest imperial legion in South East Asia). But yeah, this year’s parade on the 15th March will have them again in the Star Wars contingent.
