Ye Kyaw, otherwise known as Neutron in the eYeka community proudly displays his eYeka certificate!

How long have you been on eYeka and what made you want to be part of the community? I became a member of eYeka community four months ago. I got this web address from one of my friends and he told me that this site is the good one for the animators. And then, I become a part of this community because I can share the knowledge of animation and design with other animators and designers. What made you join the Anti-HIVirus contest and what inspired you to do the animation? First of all, its title, Anti-HIVirus, really attracted me. I believed that if I could do an informative animation, it will provide a great advantage for people. Moreover, creating a good animation is the one that I have been crazy about for ages. The above factors made me want to take part in the contest. When I was young, I really liked cartoon movies (both 2D and 3D) and also admired the animators who create those attractive movies. I have been dreaming all the time to be a good animator like them. It motivates me to do animations. Any advice to aspiring animators? I would like to give the following advice to aspiring animators: “Everyone can be a Hero!” “And so, Keep Moving Forward!” I would also like to thank the jury of Anti-HIVirus Call for Entries and my fellow eYeka community members. – Thanks for sharing your passion with us and we look forward to seeing more of your works in the future. Again, congratulations Aung Ye Kyaw! To see his winning work, click here!
