FAO CAA Yr 1: Invisible Cities 2016 / Previous Student Work



And so it begins, ladies and gentlemen - your first undergraduate project brief, and your first foray into the fast-paced, high-energy culture of Computer Animation Arts!

I'm not alone in looking forward to seeing how you respond to the challenge of your Invisible Cities project, but before you get stuck in, just take a few moments to take a look at these examples of previous student work. By clicking on their names, you'll be able to view all blog posts associated with their respective Invisible Cities projects.

Don't get preoccupied with the polish of the final paintings, give your attention instead to their methodology - that is, how they arrived at the final three paintings. Review their research and reflect on its presentation.  What impresses about their work?  What might you do differently?  Take time to think about the ways in which the students have organised, presented and published their bodies of work.  Happy browsing!

It's time to begin blogging your work - little and often.  Invite feedback and discussion by numbering your thumbnails and welcoming the opinions of others.  Similarly, try putting questions into your post titles: for example: 'Thumbnail 12 or 20? Feedback Welcome!'

Remember, no queries can be answered or advice given or great ideas celebrated in the Post With The Most if you don't get yourself out there and present yourself well.  Always title your posts and please label your content according to the conventions outlined on your project brief: i.e., Invisible Cities, Space and Environment, Digital Painting etc. Labelling will help you organise your blog as the year goes on and will make life easier, so start now and be consistent.

Watch out for the Invisible Cities animations and short films published here on the course blog @ 9am every day in the run up to your first crit presentation.  Lots to inspire - experimental stuff, quirky stuff, cinematic stuff, great stuff!




Your first Online Greenlight Review is Wednesday 5th October, the specific requirements for which will be announced here on the group blog on Monday, so stay tuned, read the brief, read it again, dig into myUCA, read stuff, research stuff, draw stuff, enjoy yourself, work hard and 'be amazing!'

I'll see you all again on Tuesday at 1.50pm in Lecture Theatre One for the first of our films together - and I'll be taking all and any questions in regards to your Invisible Cities project.

Watch the group blog for the announcement of your official A & B groups for Monday's classes with Jordan Buckner and Simon Holland.
