We won 2nd place!! 1st Runner Up in The Star In.Tech EOS Movie Challenge!!! *excited*
Last Sunday was the live judging session for the competition where 10% of points were from the online voting and 90% came from the 3 judges. Nice!
The “Kan Cheong” hours played quite a big role in spicing up the last weekend of March 2011 for me. Seriously, it was quite a tough competition. From the start when we know we were amongst the 10 team which got shortlisted, we were delighted, but at the same time we were worried.
Teams which have won in other competitions before and their videos are at certain standards. Our team consist of only 1 experienced videographer with 2 newbies. Yeah, newbies, in some way.
There were 5 main themes : White Balance, Fill Light, Depth of Field, Motion, Low Light. 2 teams will get the same theme and we have to come out with a short film that is less than 3 minutes. A clip which consist some sorta tutorial base on the theme we get.
Following the shortlisting of the 10 teams, the 3 of us came out over a Yumcha session to discuss on what to do. Had quite a number of wild ideas but at the end of the day, we decided to go with a story base on Basketball. Motion. =)
Though there were challenges, we did came out with the short film and submitted the video BEFORE THE TIMELINE. After viewing the videos from other teams, we didn’t really imagine that we could get into the top 3 because some teams were good. On top of that, we aren’t really clear on what is the exact criteria on the judging part as well.
The judges – Mohammad Jafni, Jeffrey Chiang, and Mohd Jamil
Long story short, the competition ended and our team came up as the 1st Runner Up in The Star In.Tech EOS Movie Challenge. =)
