My D&AD Award Certificate!

There has been good and bad news today. Bad news is that I was pulled into a freezing cold paddling pool that my friend had put in his conservatory and I had my mobile in my pocket causing it to break. Hopefully I will be able to fix it once it has dried out…

On the other hand I received my D&AD certificate today all that I need to do now is to go out and purchase a frame for it!

If you have not seen the project that won the award you can see it by clicking here There was a lot of hassle with this project because we had to work as a team and there was a lot of disagreements about who did what as a lot of the people that we worked with decided that we could not do the project in the allocated time and simply gave up.

I am still extremely happy about the award and these disagreements sometimes happen. When I have more time I shall tidy up the After effects that I used to do the video as some parts are still in the draft stage as I did most of the animating the day before the final deadline.

Internet Meme proposal (With Video)

Most men that propose to women usually take them to a nice restaurant or somewhere romantic, get down on one knee and say those fatal last words “Will you marry me?” whilst awaiting the dreaded reply of “yes” or “no”. The thought of this can be scary for most men, and it was not an easy task for Mr Timothy Tiah Ewe Tiam (AKA Fatty) either. However when he finally plucked up the courage to do so he decided to do things a little differently and he proposed to the love of his life Audrey Ooi Feng Ling (AKA Shorty…Some kind of strange pet name, I didn’t just make them up ‘for teh lulz‘) through the romantic ways of internet memes(If you dont know what a meme is then you should do some googling and you should be ashamed for not knowing the ways of the internet).

In a restaurant in Malaysia, Fatty had some pre-printed internet memes such as Y U NO guy and the Philosopher and presented them to Shorty in a sequence ending up with the last one being “Will you marry me?”

At first Shorty thought that he was trying to end their relationship and she was quite scared for a while, but when she realised what he was doing she was astonished, luckily for Timothy she said yes, he had 2 printed memes remaining. One was for the possible rejection, but he didn’t have to use that one (it would have been an epic fail if he did) instead he used 

All I can say is well done Fatty for the best proposal ever!
