  • Stop-Motion Spells Asia Video Contest Promo

    Post by The Bounceologist on May 28th, 2011

    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.

    The closing date for the Waboba Asia Video Competition 2011 is September 10, so you still have the whole summer to come up with something.

    The first prize is a holiday in Phuket, including flights for two to Phuket from anywhere within Asia, plus two nights in a five-star hotel, plus $700 USD in cash. The competition rules are here.

    Happy shooting.

    Waboba Video Competition Winners

    Thanks to the Mazzarella family, winners of the Waboba Asia Video Competition 2010, for sending us these photos from their weekend at the Hilton Sanya Resort and Spa.

    The Mazzarellas won two nights at the Hilton plus 5000RMB in cash when they came first in the Waboba Asia Video Competition 2010. They have been so busy with their ski factory that it took them until now to find time to collect their prize. But we’re told they had an amazing time there with their visiting relatives from Italy.

    If you like the sound of a free stay in a five-star hotel, you definitely need to enter our Waboba Asia Video Competition 2011.

    This year’s prize consists of flights for two to Phuket from anywhere in Asia, plus two nights in a five-star hotel, plus $700 US in cash.

    To enter the competition, you need to shoot a video up to three minutes long, upload it to a video website like YouTube, Tudou or Vimeo, and tell us about the video at competitions@waboba-asia.com.

    The style of video is entirely up to you. It can be arty, sporty, fast, funny, but it must have the Waboba Ball in there somewhere, preferably with it bouncing on water.

    Here’s last year’s competition winner:
