Source: Rubix Cube Communications

The Best of Comgraph Animation Screening takes place at Guinness Theatre in The Substation on 10 & 11 Jan 2003 at 7.30pm. The screening is the preview event for the coming ComGraph 2003 - 4th Asia Pacific Digital Art and Animation Competition.

The screening is co-organised by Siggraph Singapore and The Substation's Moving Images programme, with support from Singapore Film Commission.

The two-day screening will feature 21 award winning animation works from ComGraph 2000 – 2002. Bringing together different styles and techniques of animators and agencies from Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Thailand, Japan, New Zealand and Australia, the screening is a showcase of the best digital animation in the form of television commercials, short films, short animation and web animation.

Included are creative works such as iBeach by Click Grafix, which illustrates a flexible display solution for Macintosh computers; Schnorky the Wave Puncher by Unreal Pictures and Circa Entertainment; and Crossing by The One Academy, which tells a story of day in the life of a lizard.

Other Highlights:

-Real-time Web Short Animation, Advertisement
-Producer: Grace Ng

Exploration of the psyche of a heartbroken, teenage girl tugs at the heartstrings. As a young girl, Tina, looked forward to love with hope and
anticipation. When it came, she gave everything she could to turn it into a modern-day fairy tale. But her boyfriend left suddenly, leaving only a
letter. Sitting alone in a cafe, her confusion is revealed as she recalls the times with her boyfriend - good and bad. The climax is reached when she finally opens the letter.

-Short Animation, Advertisement
-Director: Yang Tien

The story takes place in the cold arctic regions of earth. An oil tanker meets with a disaster, crashing into an iceberg and spilling oil into the
freezing waters. Our team rushes to the scene only to find that they are too late. It is here that they come to meet the newest member of their crew - Seal. Together with Seal, the crew decides to put an end to this environmental chaos. Things take a turn for the better when they stumble onto Snow City.

Admission to the Best of ComGraph Animation Screening is free (on a first-come-first-served basis) and is open to all. Digital animation enthusiasts from schools, advertising agencies and production houses are encouraged to attend the event.
