FAO CAA Year 2/Year 3: Project Requiem Briefing Presentation


See below - briefing presentation for ACT 2: Project Requiem:




The short version is this:  late last year, we converted a conductor's movements into seven Maya curves.  The curves express the conductor's physical movements as he was conducting a performance of Verdi's Requiem.  We're asking you to use the seven curves as the basis for the creation of seven sculptural forms in Maya, that capture and reflect your own responses after listening to the Requiem.  Ultimately, we will be turning a selection of the forms into physical metal sculptures!

A 'one-stop-shop' folder will be shared with you via Dropbox, containing the seven curves, the seven sections of music, templates for rendering and exporting, and instructions for manipulating the original curves.  You are to listen to the 7 sections of music and then seek to express your visual impression of what you hear via the choice of manipulations outlined in the presentation (extrude, loft, planar and revolve).

7 curves, 7 sections of music, 7 Maya objects, 7 metal sculptures.

This is a one-week challenge; closing date is Friday 16th May.

Good luck - and have fun!  We can't wait to see what you create.

If you don't receive your DropBox access, email me and I'll sort it.
