CAA One-A-Day: Are You Lost In The World Like Me?

This is very bleak.  It's also a music video.  It might just be a documentary.

FAO CAA YEAR 2: The Sculpting Class on Tuesday is a Go

Good news year 2!
The missing materials have arrived just in time for the start of the sculpting classes on Tuesday. Therefore the scheduled classes will go ahead as planned. For those of you who haven't chosen your characters yet or bought the appropriate materials please make sure you do so 'before' the class. Also, please make sure you know which group you are in. See this link for further info. 

Note: Please pass this info on to anyone you may feel won't see this post.

FAO CAA Yr 1: I Haven't Forgotten You!

Just wanted to reassure you that I haven't forgotten about your or your assessment feedback for From Script To Screen and Soundscape.  They're all done and ready to go, but as is traditional, I won't be sending them out until Tuesday afternoon - after you've pitched for Fantastic Voyage.  I'll announce on here when they've been sent to your Ucreative emails.  Until then - I know you're busy, and probably feeling a bit of pressure, but stay focused and remember that the pitch is an opportunity for constructive feedback - not an execution!  Don't over dramatise it - just be ready to communicate your idea effectively.  I'm genuinely looking forward to Monday.  Watch the blog on Sunday night for the announcement of your respective groups.  Until then... onwards!

Due to a meeting both Phil and I will not be in the University tomorrow (Friday). Therefore there will be no drop in tutorials. Please email any questions you may have to us and we'll do our best to get back to you quickly instead. Phil will be back in the University on Monday and I will be back on Tuesday if you have any further questions.
