CAA One-A-Day: Bobby Yeah

And you thought the EU referendum result was nightmarish....

FAO ND Exibitors: Your Arts Thread Portfolios & Alan's Video File 'Health Check'

This is a reminder for you to ensure you complete your Arts Thread portfolio pages - which is another New Designers-affiliated platform by which to foster more chances for influential people to view your work.  Some of you have made a start, and some of you have completed your pages already - for example, Rosie and Ant - take a look.  I want all ND2016 exhibitors to have representation through Arts Thread - and don't wait until the show is on to get this done; get it done today.

Some of you are posting your completed films and ND2016 turnarounds: can you please send your ND video files to Alan asap, so he can 'health-check' your export settings and gauge how well your film files will player via the media-players we'll be using at the show.  This is really important: we don't want any broken-hearted graduates whose films are stuttering or glitching.  As published previously, your deadline for completing your films is Friday 1st July, but before that date, we want to be able to have previewed your animations on the media-players.  Send Alan what you've already completed on Monday, and get everything else to him to check within the final week.  Many thanks!

CAA @ New Designers #3 : 'Build!'

So today, Alan and I test-built our New Designers stand... and we're pleased to report that, a few tweaks excepted, everything came together rather beautifully.  We also received the 120 posters from the printers, and work began cutting and cropping them, and inserting them into their flippable display things!  Things are shaping up nicely - more updates next week.

Class Of 2016 / Graduation Day / Royal Festival Hall / 22nd June

Congratulations to the Computer Animation Arts 'Class of 2016'!  We really hope you enjoyed your big day and Alan and I want you to know just how proud we are of your achievements this year. We've enjoyed having you about the place!  Not everyone made it into these hastily assembled group photos on the balcony of the Royal Festival Hall (despite my best efforts at herding cats!), but all of you should be puffed up and glowing following your short walk of fame.  This is an ending, true - but it's only the ending of the beginning!
