N.E.Mation! 10: Together We Keep Singapore Strong Part 1/2 (Cedar3)


[MinuteManSG: "We are all wrapped up! Literally!"]

By the way, that's the 'haunted bear' from N.E.mation! 8.
Click on the picture below to read about it:


3 weeks of production for the Top 10 finalists of NE10 has finally come to an end, Colin and I would like to seize this opportunity to reflect on what we've observed and learnt from our teams revolving around this year's N.E.mation theme:  Together We Keep Singapore Strong.

Stepping into SG50, many vivid incidents happened:
The passing of our founding father, Free public transport, the SG50 celebrations and SG50 events!

[MinuteManSG: "And my birthday!"]

My birthday too. >-_- "<

As the theme goes, this is the start of the next 50 years, it is a good time to reflect on and reaffirm the strength, values and beliefs that have brought Singapore this far and, more importantly, the values that reside within each and every Singaporean to take Singapore forward. Together, we will continue to play our part to keep Singapore strong.

[MinuteManSG: "And this is how we think Team Cedar3 has helped, in their own special way, to keep Singapore strong."]

TEAM Cedar3

Team Cedar3 holding on to their copies of roomiesCD album comprising of 10 local original compositions.

1. Their participation in N.E.mation! 10.

Getting holidays burnt so that they can conveying the message of coming together to build a stronger Singapore through their animation clip via national TV. In a nutshell, their clip is about people from different walks of life coming together to paint beautiful picture of Singapore.

[MinuteManSG: "Keeping to the theme of the past 2 weeks, here's another pixelated preview of one of their awesome paintings! Stay tuned to the release of their final clip in January and vote for them to win! Such Creativity!"]

2. Behind the Scenes

We would first like to praise these bubbly girls for having the diligence, commitment and speed to finish all their paintings and recordings on or before time.

[MinuteManSG: "Who says kids who like to play and have fun can't get things done?"]

[MinuteManSG: "Keeping true to their vision that they started these 3 weeks with, of making new friends with the other 9 teams, the girls from Cedar3 bribed won their way into the hearts of the other teams with their constant moral support and free food gifts."]

And I always believe that you will always get back more than what you give. And the picture below proves just that. Apart from making new friends, they also get to enjoy fun times together such as this impromptu shadow show put on by team Rockin' Tomato just opposite their working area!

[MinuteManSG: "Here... Have a juicy apple my dear CEDARellas..."]

Their kindness and bubbliness lifted the spirit of all the teams and brought happiness to everyone.

3. How N.E.mation campaign has helped to keep Singapore Strong!

Thank you N.E.mation! 10 for 10 years of sharing. It has indeed came a long way in terms of spreading the word and awareness about Total Defence through the creativity and imagination of our homegrown students.

And what better way to bring all these like-minded people closer together that to have an awesome wrap party to celebrate the end of the grueling 3 weeks of production as well as N.E.mation!'s 10th birthday!

[MinuteManSG: "Food! Oh glorious food!!"]

I had the honour of meeting one of the Top 10 finalists from N.e.mation! 1 personally, who had came back to say hi! Meet Jian Liang, who is currently studying in university now.

And of course, all of this would never have been possible without the dedication and commitment of...

...Our wonderful instructors!!

These are the people in the background who helped and encouraged the students every step of the way and gave them valuable tips and advice on how to make their animation clips even more impressive.

[MinuteManSG: "I believe I'm representing every single one of the students when I say this: Thank you instructors! We couldn't have done it without you guys!"]

So this marks the end of the 3 weeks of production, and we will be looking forward to the winner of this N.E.mation! 10, who will be walking away with a fully sponsored overseas trip to visit a renowned animation studio in the USA!

The voting phase would be happening some time in January - February 2016, please vote for our teams -- Cedar3 & Team ZLS.

Good luck all Top 10 teams!

[MinuteManSG: "And Happy Birthday, N.E.mation!"]
