NACES 2009 and it’s over

By August 25, 2009 Events, My Thoughts, Sabah, UMS

14th – 16th of August 2009 has now become a memories to me and my friends. We had successfully organize National Chemical Engineering 2009 and lots of things happen to us.

When I think back, I’ve been spending part of my time doing stuff for this event and I spend more along the week before the event and on the event day itself. I have some basic in using flash and creating website and this is what gives me an opportunities to join this event and also become one of the Unit Directors.

My task was to look over the production of Publicity and Multimedia unit together with Mr.Kevin Khoo. For this event, we created recap videos for the participants, created the opening flash movie and also taking the pictures on the whole event. Thanks to our members, Jessica, Karen, Chung Hon, Sigrid, Lip Sheng, Chong Yap, Aaron, Zack and Kenny for all their hard works. Without them, our task would have not been so easy and thanks to their cooperation that works was easily done on time and if there is a rewards for the best members, I’d like to nominate them.

Actually our unit had been working since the beginning after the committee was formed. We are incharge to invite universities to the event and also to publicize the event to the community. Back in few months before,things had been so relax and as for me, I asked my members to learn how to use flash. They learned it but not to the extend that they can become a professional flash maker. Also for me, even I’ve known flash like 5 years ago, I still very new to the thing as I less practice on how to use it. Then, looking at the slow progress I learned  that one of my coursemate know  how to use 3d animation maker. That really makes my mind fly high to the sky.

I went to him, asking for help and we work on some ideas. Then having 3 months internship which stops all the progress of the movie. Right after the internship ends, we have 3 weeks to finish it, but to this extent, we could not do anything much.. Proper 3d animation requires countless of days so I manage, to do the movie using flash. With the helps of my members we working on the animation and we finish it the day before the events but still there is a problem with exporting it. The sound files is faster from the animation. The main reason for this is the file size which is too big. The arrangement of the animation and the sound is the same on the time line but there is nothing much we could do but to make the animation goes first followed by the sound file.

Then that is the animation that is used for the intro of NACES 2009. I was wondering if anyone realize the odd thing about our animation or not. But what came to me that time was, that is all everyone’s hardwork.. They put their all on it, the problem is not expected and so this problem is considered as non existance.

Right after the intro movie, on the 3 days event we have to work for the next host animation. The animation is created by one of my members, Lip Sheng and Jessica and I was in that too (too little that you can say I do nothing). Their hard work is what so important here. Just imagine I asked them to prepare 13 same animation with 1 difference which is the  logo if the university at the end. The work might be simple but it is time consuming and they do it greatly. And this is what used for announcing the next university that will host naces 2010.

So glad that right after the last animation, that is the end of the work for the animation and stuff. Then we can breath comfortably. Nothing much to do left and we could at last relax ourself.  And I believe, my other friends that been working for NACES 2009 to success also feel relieve. What is left for us is to celebrate it. To celebrate it in order to appreciate everyone’s work. Congratulations Everyone and thanks for all the hardwork.


I will post the animation files here later on and hope you can see it.
