ANIMATION

ROAD SAFETY

A group of students created a series of animated short movies for the Singapore Road Safety Council. These three 3D Animation clips portray different scenarios to teach audience, children in particular, on how to cross the road safely and stay alert in their environment.

The first story teaches the audience the kerb drills, how to cross the roads safely by looking right, left, and right again to check for any incoming traffic. The second story educates the audience on the vehicles' blind spots, how drivers who are driving more high-raised vehicles such as buses and lorries can't spot pedestrians who may be of a more petite size such as children. The third story explains how dangerous it is to cross the road when one is distracted by his/her gadgets such as mobile phone.

DIGITAL VISUAL EFFECTS

MEDIACORP WHEN DUTY CALLS

Mediacorp collaborated with NYP SIDM students to develop a drama series which tells a story revolving around characters in the Singapore Arm Forces. They involve familiar Mediacorp stars such as Desmond Tan, Romeo Tan, Felicia Chin, Page and veteran actor Pierre Png. Our students were involved with the creation on the visual effects sequences for an Earth Quake Scene, Rapid River Rescue Scene, a private Gulfstream private jet escorted by two F15s and a MRT explosion scene. 18 Digital Visual Effects students and 4 staff were in full force from March 2017 to Jun 2017 to generate the high quality visual effects sequences for the drama series and delivered the product with praise and appreciation from Mediacorp and the Singapore Arm Forces for their involvement. The take back from this project was that the students from DVE once again got a rare opportunity work with local stars while filming on set.

INTERACTION DESIGN

ATARAXIA

Ataraxia’ was featured at ilight Marina Bay 2017. It is the brainchild of a team of 9 IxD students and they spent the 12 months working on this interactive art installation, which used AR (augmented reality) and allowed visitors to be immersed in tranquillity, as well as to experience nature that is represented in the form of light.

Ataraxia had over 3,000 LED lights and they were painstakingly put together by the students. Students also developed a mobile application for android and IOS with AR capability so that visitors could discover and interact with 9 animal characters that were hidden in the installation

ANIMATION

FLYING THROUGH TIME

A team of two Animation students created a 3D animated clip for a theatre play (“Flying Through Time”) for Resort World Sentosa. The clip is helping the storytelling of the play: a fast time-lapse animation is representing the passing of time during the centuries; starting in medieval Korea and at the end arriving to present Singapore. The clip was projected on the stage as an important part of the performance. This international collaboration with the world renowned Korean director Choi Chul Ki proved that committed Animation students are ready for taking on challenges in real productions; contributing to the entertainment industry.

SHIPWRECK

Shipwreck is a game set on a coastal island which serves as the pirate’s home. The player’s ship is destroyed by a boss Kraken and he is knocked unconscious. He wakes up to find himself washed ashore on a small boat. The player then gets to go on a guided tour of the island which brings him around different enemies and obstacles. The player has to damage the enemies to gain more points and getting hit by the enemies will reduce the player’s score. This game creates an unique cinematic experience that players could enjoy in Virtual Reality. This game emphasizes the novelty and possibilities that virtual reality can offer, instead of complicated game mechanics or features that would make the game too hard for a casual player to beat.

INTERACTION DESIGN

EYES

5 pairs of “eyes” designed by Interaction Design students were part of PassionArts Festival 2017. These “eyes” were placed in front of the trees to bring life to Mother Nature and it also symbolises that trees can see. The animatronic “eyes” gave character and human qualities to the trees of Bishan Park. The “eyes” completely charmed visitors, including Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who graced the event.
