“Contained” has won the “Encouragement Award”, at the regional animation contest TBS Digicon6 in Japan! This is the first award that “Contained” had received, after participating in local and overseas animation film festivals.
There are many people we want to thank! (the list is very long)
First of all, we would like to thank MDA (Media Development Authority) for giving us the financial support for both our scholarship and Travel Assistance Grant to attend KROK Animated Film Festival at Moscow.
We want to thank Tan Wei Keong for giving us advised and encouragement in our short film. Because of him, we were able to attend KROK animated festival as a representative.
We want to thank Hera in believing in us. Her expertise in typography was a great help to “Contained”. Both Harry and I are really please with the title design.
I would also want to thanks Ing for giving me advises and encouragement during the early stage of development in “Contained”. She had always been my muse.
We also want to thanks the Professors and friends who have spend their time watching our work in progress animation (which make no sense at all) and give us constructive critiques. Thank you very much.
Lastly, we would also want to thank our friends who came down to support “Contained” despite their busy time schedule. I can still remember my friends who find time to come down for the first screening at Singapore International film Festival despite having their exams and work. Thank you very much. It means a lot to me.
And i want to thanks my friends who came down for Sinema showoff and Singapore Shortcuts as well. thanks!
The newspaper article was really one of the best Birthday gift. Thank you all who have wish me. We will continue to work hard and hopefully, we will be able to pull through our current FYP. “Contained” will be screened again as part of Animation Nation 2010 programme, at 4 Dec 4pm. There will be a QnA = )
