FAO Year 3: Alan is Unwell

Alan is Unwell

Sorry everyone, after feeling pretty low today I have finally come down with an illness. Unfortunately this means I won't be able to do third year tutorials tomorrow (Friday). However I suggest seeing as you've all just finished your pitch you use the extra time to address some of the feedback given before next week. If there are any immediate issues please blog them and I'll hopefully be able to answer your questions online.

Trailers: Avengers Age of Ultron

It's finally here ladies and gentlemen!

CAA One-A-Day- Mike & Christie-Proposal

FAO CAA Year 1: Your Feedback Is Required

This is a message for our year one students.  As an ongoing part of the course, we ask you for your feedback on your experience of Computer Animation Arts so far.  There's a course board meeting soon, in which your course reps meet with the course team, library staff and other members of UCA, and one of the things we discuss are any issues arising from your feedback.

Julia Mason, one of your course reps, has asked me to ask you to email her your feedback, so she can bring the main issues to the meeting.  Julia's email is

In terms of giving feedback, the University asks you to organise it in the following way: you're to reflect on 3 positive aspects of the course, and identify 3 areas you'd like to see improved.  Your feedback might be course-specific, or might also highlight any issues associated more broadly with your  university experience so far - for example, refectory, library and student union.

You need to email Julia your 3 positives/3 improvements, and she will communicate your feedback at the course board.

Many thanks!

Animator Interview- Andrew Chesworth

Andrew Chesworth - Interview with Walt Disney Animator
I found another interview that I thought was nice to share, this time with Disney's character animator Andrew Chesworth. Not only does he talk about himself, he also talks about how it is to work at Disney which I'm sure we are all interested in.
