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.
Come Alive, a Waboba animation by Jeremy Trylch, came from behind in the final day to win the public vote in the Waboba Asia Video Contest 2011.
At the close of voting, Come Alive had 1,382 votes, or 54% of the total votes. Lightness and Bounce, by Tian Xiao and friends, was second with 1085 votes, or 42% of the total votes cast.
The World’s Longest Waboba Bounce, which started out in front, finished a distant third with 64 votes.
The vote turned into a titanic struggle between rival factions at Sanya University – supporters of Jeremy, the teacher, versus supporters of students Tian Xiao and friends.
Jeremy’s sophomore students conducted a spirited campaign that pulled them back from a deficit of several hundred.
“Word went out all over China! They set up a HQ at Sanya College and they kept calling me and texting me with the new numbers. You should have heard them when it hit first place… I thought they were going to cry,” said Jeremy.
We are now awaiting a final decision by Jan von Heland, Waboba inventor and CEO, on who gets to win the holiday in Phuket, including flights, two nights in a five-star hotel and 700USD in cash.

This entry comes from Jeremy Trylch. It’s a stop-motion animation shot on his iphone.
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.
