Go Green!

Lately, people talking about "go green". Every event held with go green-theme got very good responds. Honestly, I am not really concern about this go green stuff, because I like pink.

hmm... sounded like a stupid reason. Okay, I'll change my reason. I am not really concern about this go green stuff, but doesn't mean I don't care at all. I was accidentally involved with a go green event in the church. Yes, in the church. I am not a really religious person, so it was a double accident. I was just helping my high school friend in making a photography contest for this go green event. I didn't even care about the go green theme, but I thought that event was a very good event. Too bad I was just helping the photography contest comittee.

Before the event, I was consciously participating in a Global Warming Animation contest, held by Global Solutions. I made a flash animation, mother nature's love in 2 days only. But it took about a very long time to realize that I miss-spelled "plant" to "plan".

Last year I was participating for another global warming animation, held by Da Ai TV, a local television in Jakarta Indonesia. The title is "Small things I'd do for the world", unfortunatelly the sub is in Bahasa Indonesia. The story tell you step by step to go green. Again, I'm not a go green person, I was only do 30% from those steps mentioned on the animation.

I thought it's a little ironic, that people like me making animation about go green. because the process in making the animation is no green at all. Computer was used almost 24 hours a day? Countless paper for the sketch?

It's been a while since the last post. Yes, not a while, it's been a long time since the last post. I have many things to write and post, and it is hard for me to stay focus on one topic, so let me get to the point

I won! Hurray! I won!!!!!
(Is it too "to the point"?)

On 2009, The Indonesian ministry of Industry held an animation contest for the first time. And luckily, I won the third prize in the professional category. When I said "luckily", it means I am truly lucky.

Wait a minute, am I a pro ? and right now in my head, I am screaming , "NOOOOO! Are you kidding??"

There were 3 categories for the contest, students, college students, and pros. I am not a student. I still have a "college student card", but I am not a college student anymore, I never paid the tuition since the 3rd year. So I wrote a statement on the CD, "I am not a student, nor a pro"

I have been working as an animator for 2 years, but I don't think I am a pro. It is different between making animation and being animator. I got paid by being an animator even when I'm not making animation, but I'm not always get money when making animation.

Hey... maybe I should not admit that I am not a pro. It is bad if I want to get a new job. So forget what you read... forget what you read.... :D

I am a pro, at least I have a signature from the ministry of industry which proof that I am a pro!

hmm... just in case you are curious about the animation, you may check it on:
