Martin Junior tops Hyundai Rev-It-Up Challenge Take 2

A classy video that showcases the beauty of the brand new Hyundai Veloster won Martin Junior, a group of students from The Design School (TDS) at Taylor’s University the champion title at the Hyundai Rev-It-Up Challenge Take 2 TV Commercial Competition.

Competing against two other teams who made the cut to the final, the commercial video produced by Martin Junior, under the guidance of their lecturer, Mr. Martin Chong, was a clear winner with its short but compact interpretation of the new car.

Hoang Nguyen, Director of the team commented that the competition has stirred the team’s spirit to continue taking part in such competitions. “It was very challenging for us to chase against the deadline of the competition and at the same time completing our assignments respectively but it was such a great learning experience for all of us.”

“We are extremely thrilled to have won the competition and we are looking forward for more competitions to sharpen our skills and to add more great memories to our studies at Taylor’s University,” said the Vietnamese student who is in her second study of the Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Interactive Multimedia Design.

Mr. Ken Tan, Deputy Dean of TDS is proud to see his students winning more and more competitions both locally and internationally. “It is a joy to see the students winning at competitions like this. They are simply the best testaments that the school is doing the right thing and that we are producing quality students who are ready to take on the world.”

“I congratulate the team for their achievement and sincerely thank the lecturers for their commitments and supports.”

The Hyundai Veloster Rev-It-Up Challenge Take 2 is a competition open to all students at university and college level to produce videos in a form of commercial to introduce Hyundai’s new car, the Veloster. As the winner of the competition, Martin Junior walks away with RM6,000 of cash prize.

The win also means Taylor’s University made a clean sweep at the competitions held under the same campaign. A group of students from Taylor’s University School of Architecture, Building and Design (SABD) have also earlier won the Hyundai Veloster Rev-It-Up Inter-College Challenge, a competition to design a stage display for the same car.
