Student participants from Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand had a blast during their bootcamp in Singapore. Finalist from the above 12 countries were treated to a variety of experiences including a Singapore tour, food shopping and shopping for goodies.
The actual bootcamp was from 6-8 November where participants were coached and mentored by industry specialists from Autodesk. Apart from using the M.A.D. Studios for preparing their works, the students were taught dance moves from our very own DMIT Students from the Diploma in Digital Animation (DDA). This enabled them to experience our Motion Capture Studio by replicating the moves when donning the motion capture suit (VICON System) with the dance moves learnt. The whole experience was caught and documented by the budding Cameramen and Videographers who are students from the Diploma in Visual Effects and Motion Graphics (DVEMG) for Animax Channel.
Student Finalists from Singapore Polytechnic took the opportunity to exchange contacts, experiences and skills that were brought from all over the world. Two of our students even went on to secure the Most Honorable Sculpt Award and the Best of Category – Sculpting Award.
