WAMBAM win for students


North Metropolitan TAFE screen and media students have claimed victory over university students and local professional animators, winning the 48-hour animation competition, WAMBAM 2018.

  • WAMBAM is the ultimate test in endurance and creativity, where teams draw three words from a hat to use as a creative guide for their short animation. This year’s words were chosen from three categories – animal, character trait and colour.
  • Teams had 48 hours to complete an entire short animation and NMT students impressed the judges with their winning entry ‘Caramel Nawhal’. 
  • Advanced Diploma of Screen and Media (Animation & Visualisation) students Anderson Tran; Cody Kennington-Birch; Kristina Rondilla; Robbie Beresford and Wayne Eades were delighted with their win. 

Robbie Beresford, one of the winners, said, “It was a fun creating something random like that over 48 hours. Working with everyone on the team was a really great experience.”

The judging panel cited ‘Caramel ‘Nawhal’s’ excellent design and continuous story as the reason for them being awarded first place. Check out their animation

The win by our students was particularly impressive, as they competed against media and animation professionals, university and other VET students. WAMBAM WINNERS 2_SELFIE.jpg
