Reminiscing Technographix V

I got bored and tried to search for my name. To my surprise, I got this article from this site! Oh my, I can still feel the joy of winning this competition. I remember we've worked so hard to be in the final 20 of this competition. Spent a day just to render 10 seconds of 3d animation, barely slept, and a lot of teamwork. We've been working on the project separately. Usually, we meet before going home and discuss what will be done and work on it until the wee hours of the morning. Sweet!

"95.5 WRocK came up with the highly successful Lite RocK Technographix V, a computer graphics final competition on its 5th year, last August 17, 2004 at SM City Entertainment Plaza. The endeavor was WRocK’s brainchild and its annual involvement to the Kadayawan Sa Dabaw festivities. It aimed to provide a new venue for the depiction of Davao’s Kadayawan Festival (the Kadayawan has been portrayed in film, dramas, plays, paintings and other traditional forms of art. Every year, WRocK aims to drop a unique accent to the festival by coming up with something that is entirely new to the people of Davao); To encourage the city’s young and budding computer artists to excel in their field of specialty in an atmosphere of healthy, motivational competition; and to prove to the rest of the country that Mindanao is at par with the times by being actively involved in the technological advance of the millennium.

57 contestants, 19 entries representing 11 schools, colleges and universities vied for the grand prizes in the revelry of the fusion of roots and modern art; the combination of culture and technography; of ethnicity and computer graphics.

Entry No. 13 from Jayson Albano, Raphael Villejo, James and Michael Wales and Andrew Gabotero of AMA Computer College garnered the 3rd prize.

Entry No. 18 from McRobert Nacario, Felino Diel, Rosenlee Torres, Gemini Ritz Ayupan, Erick Derama and Raymond Sunga of AMA Computer College brought home the Grand prizes which includes a brand new 128 mb Philips Digicam, accommodation at Eden Nature Park and exciting premium items from WRocK. Texters’ choice award was given to Shane Ryan Diaz and Kirth Anthony Anthony of Cor Jesu College, Digos City.

Vocal quintet, D’ COUSINS, and the highly-esteemed Shayloh rendered delightful intermission numbers.
