Waboba CEO, Jan von Heland, has spoken. The winner of a holiday for two in Phuket, including flights, two nights in a five-star hotel, and $700US in cash is Jeremy Trylch, for his 50′s sci-fi animation, Come Alive.
Is it me, or is it getting hot in here? The public vote in the Waboba Asia Video Contest 2011 has turned into a pitched battle between rival factions at Sanya University – supporters of Jeremy, the teacher, versus students Tian Xiao and friends.
David Taylor, of the Sanya Cricket Club, is a popular guy but, having taken the initial lead, he’s now in a distant third, dwarfed by the massed might of Sanya University, which has something like 20,000 students.
Voting ends at midday today (Saturday), Beijing time, after which we’ll put the results to Waboba inventor and CEO Jan von Heland for a considered and dispassionate decision on a winner.
Thanks to everyone who has voted so far.

This is what you might call a ‘serving suggestion’ for the Waboba Asia Video Competition. It’s a little something I made with a box of Waboba Balls and my son’s spelling bricks.
If you’re behind the Chinese Firewall, you can see the video here.
Stop-motion animation is completely allowed, by the way, so if you feel your creative buds tingling, this is certainly a method you can consider. This was my first ever attempt at stop-motion. It’s shot on a Nikon D90, with a remote control that allowed me to shoot repeated shots without moving the camera or breaking my back. You’ll see that I initially forgot to set the lens to manual focus, but I’ll remember for next time.
