Biography
Hey! Shah here, a lover of dinosaurs, cartoons, cats, bats, and hats. For this project, I helped come up with the story, character designs, storyboards and animation.

I’ve had a love affair with drawing from a young age, and I knew from early on that I wanted to be a storyteller. I love being able to send messages and ideas through visual mediums. It’s really just pure magic.

My dream is to be an author, or comic book illustrator, or storyboard artist. I love the idea of being able to create worlds and characters that leave an impact on the audience, long after the pages in the book have run out, or after the episode ends on TV.

During my spare time, I work on the many worlds in my head, connect with family and friends, and read books. Oh. And I manhandle my cat, Prince Spotsy-kun The First. He doesn’t mind.

I think.

Strengths/Interests:
Storyboarding and story development in general has been my passion. I love exploring characters through their actions and behaviour and appearance, and finding the perfect blend to get a personality across is always a challenge I like to try and conquer.

Speaking of characters, character design is another area I love to do. There’s just so many things that can describe a character–the way they stand, dress, move… I love thinking about how to bring all of these together to create one cohesive character.

I also love drawing and animating, both 2D and 3D.

Chow Shi Kai+

Biography
Hi, I’m Skai. I specialise in 3D animation, but I have also helped with environment and prop modelling, environment and prop concept designs, and storyboarding as well.

Since young, I’ve enjoyed watching cartoons and animated films, and have always wanted to create animated films of my own one day. I also took up Art O’ Levels to make my entry into an art course even easier. As the years went by, my interest in 3D animation became even stronger when watching game cinematics and movies, and how they have improved vastly over the years. This inspires me to work even harder to achieve my dream of becoming a 3D animator.

I plan to work in a game industry in the future and hopefully one day work for bigger studio names out there like Ubisoft, Naughty Dog, Valve, Blur Studios or Pixar. It’s a bit of a far-fetch, but I believe that one day I can achieve my dreams and go far in the industry.

Strengths/Interests:
I enjoy and specialise in doing 3D animations, especially action packed ones, be it parkour scenes or fight scenes, as they involve a lot of details in them to make them look dynamic and exciting for the viewers.

While watching movies or game cinematics, I tend to watch a lot of action packed scenes online to study how the characters are in motion, and understand how they move and how to make them look captivating for viewers.

Siti Nameerah Binte Rohiman+

Biography
Hi, I’m Meerah, I’m part of a group called Pass the Salt Productions, and I was in charge of lighting and textures, and helping out the director in anything that she needs.

I have always been mesmerized by cartoons and animated films. I have always wondered how it was made. Seeing images on paper move was a brilliant idea to get messages across. I went off to study animation in ITE and was pulled in even more into the world of animation. For 2 years, I specialized in 2D animation. In 2nd year of polytechnic, I then moved on to specializing in lighting. Being exposed to both 2D and 3D, I still have room to learn more to help improve my skill in the field.

I’m still hoping to join the big leagues like Disney, Pixar or Dreamworks. Even games studios like Naughty Dogs or Riot Games are also companies I hope to work for or with.

Strengths/Interests:
I have always loved traditional animation, including digital 2D animation. I also love doing storyboards, seeing the first draft of what the animation would look like and playing with the camera angles and shot is very interesting.

I’m also very interested in movies, any genre is fine, I tend to break the shot down to further analyze it and figure out why the director uses that angle and shot.

My interest had always been drawing and designing characters since I was young and after “O” levels, I decide to pursue my passion by enrolling into Digital Animation. Through the inspiration from Pixar, DreamWorks and Studio Ghibli films, it spurred me on a journey to create the same sentiments these movies left on me.

I spend most of my time designing characters usually inspired by games like Monster Hunter, RPG-games like Inotia and Final Fantasy, and Survival horror games like Left4Dead2.

I’m aspire to be working in game companies such as Naughty Dog, VanillaWare, Namco Bandai, com2us, and Nexon. I also desire to work in film companies like DreamWorks, Pixar and Disney, as every artist aspires to.

Strengths/Interests:
I love designing characters and work on concept art! I also love sculpting characters in Zbrush and modelling 3D characters. I use the other time embarking on personal projects, focusing on both traditional and digital art. Although I’m a modeller, I’m really interested in animation as well! I really love seeing portrayal of moods using body language, and see characters carry emotions through movement and not words.
Passion and motivation will take me all the way to achieve what I love to do!
