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.
