Managed and jointly organized by Tokyo Broadcasting System, Inc. and TBS DigiCon6 Headquarters, the DigiCon6 Awards rewards passionate and talented digital artists for their outstanding work of art.
The three Malaysian teams from The One Academy proudly swept away the top 3 placing in the competition. The first place was bagged by students Koh Chong Cheng, Chin Choo Sin, Lim Kok Wah, Choon Hock Fai and Chong Shi Hao with their winning piece titled 'Still Alive'. Completed in just 6 months, the unique short film won the judges' heart with its humorous portrayal of Chinese vampires.
The second prize went to 'My Telatori' (My Territory) by the team comprising Chin Kuan Win, Julian Chai, Yow Han Chong, Colin Hee, Tay Fang Chyi and Goh Kok Ming. Two things sprung to mind behind the concept of 'My Telatori' - children and their imagination. "The world was our playground and everything around us was our toys when we were kids". 'My Telatori' portrayed the idea of children's fantasies as we tell the story of how they had fun with things found in their surroundings", expressed Chin.
Meanwhile, the third prize was grabbed by Bram Lee Chin Horng, Tan Guo Xiang, Teh Beng Eu, Loh Yong Kang and Mark Chiew with their animation 'Nature's Roar'. The concept of the short film was to create awareness on global warming and environmental issues.
These outstanding and talented youths from The One Academy are surely progressing steadily towards becoming the region's next generation of creative digital professionals. With the academy's tagline 'We do not believe in promises, just world class results', its students are trained to join the ranks of professionals that meet world-class standards. Congratulations to the top 3 winners of the 11th TBS DigiCon6 Award!
