Yes, the other time I went to check them out was when they were still doing their productions. Now they are done. Voting is up for N.E. Mation 5! Just head on to NEMation.sg to watch the 10 animated videos and vote for them! There are 3 ways to vote too. Via their website, their facebook and with your phone. Just head on to the facebook or website to find out how to vote using SMS too.
Anyway, you might win a prize for voting! The prizes include an ipad, an X-box 360 and an ixus Canon camera.
So go on and vote! What is le sad is that this time you won’t see the shorts on TV Mobile since TV MOBILE DOES NOT EXIST ANYMORE!
I’ve watched it since it started out in the first year and now… Wow. Well, you can see it for yourself. You have to vote for three though! It’s a requirement so that students from the same school won’t spam all their votes to support their school without voting for others.
I won’t say which ones I’m voting for but good grief. Imagine all the effort the students went through to do them. I like to support those who did ton loads of stuff. Those who like to overkill and heck others. BWUAHAHAHAH.
Go forth and spread the link since the students SHOULD have their stuff viewed after all that effort in making them. It would be a shame if they didn’t since it’s now more online and not on TV mobile for people to watch. Well, the ad for it is on TV but not as much exposure as last time when on buses. In other words, super wasted right? Doing production for 3 weeks non stop and before that weeks of preparation to pitch and get through to be the finalists etc. It’s sooo freaking sad if they don’t get as many people to watch it as possible!
Right, so go and voteeee at NEMation.sg! It ends on 6 February so be sure to do it now!
Animagine! They’re a company that teaches students how to do animation. I was invited to a session on stop motion via 24 Seven to do one. WHICH STUDENTS THOUGH? OHOHOHOH. They’re the guys who are one of those who teach students to do stop motion for the N.E. mation 5 competition.

Click the thumbnail! This is my entry for Nuffnang-Nokia contest! Basically it says to make a story out of the songs available in the Singapore Nokia Music Store! Okay, so my story’s a bit morbid but it’s actually fun trying to write something with song lyrics.
Somehow I guessed a lot of people will make some story about music but then it hit me really, what if you had a song list track as if trying to give a hint what was happening and the only way to express yourself was in code or lyrics? Duh, duh, DUH. Thus, read my “story”.
Also, I realized you CAN get a lot of music from their store and if you actually had their comes with music phone… Woah then. Anywho…
Shake Up With Nokia Comes With Music!
