FAO CAA Yr 1: Toolkit Submission 14/05/18 - What & How You Need To Submit




You've been asked to submit the three projects comprising Toolkit 1 to your blogs by 5pm on Monday 14th May.  Those three projects are Drawing with Vicky, Animation with Nat, and Autodesk Maya with Simon.  When Vicky, Nat and Simon assess your projects, they're expecting you to have done your housekeeping in accordance with their respective briefs.  For your convenience then, I'm summarising those expectations here. 

Project 1 / Drawing

A final Scribd portfolio of all archived drawings produced during your drawing sessions. Portfolio should be presented professionally and all drawings dated and compiled in chronological order. (This should include any extended studies you may have produced in response to photographs of your life-drawings)

You should also ensure that all Life Drawing posts are tagged appropriately and consistently, so all your work can be gathered together under one label. You also need to include a short reflective statement in which you assess your own creative development during the course of the project; your assessors will be looking at your statements in support of their own assessment of your progress.

Project 2 / Animation

Your completed One Minute Animation Showreel

You should also ensure that all Animation related blog posts are tagged appropriately and consistently, so that all your work can be gathered together under one label. You also need to include a short reflective statement in which you assess your own creative development during the course of the project; your assessors will be looking at your statements in support of their own assessment of your progress.

Project 3 / Autodesk Maya

In order to meet successfully the learning outcomes of this project, you are expected to complete all tutorials as set during the following classes. You are asked to produce a comprehensive blog archiving and annotating your growing knowledge of Autodesk Maya & Supporting Software for the duration of the project. You should use the blog to demonstrate the completion of class tutorials  

You should also ensure that all Maya tutorial related blog posts are tagged appropriately and consistently, so that all your work can be gathered together under one label. You also need to include a short reflective statement in which you assess your own creative development during the course of the project; your assessors will be looking at your statements in support of their own assessment of your progress.

To see how to organise your completed Maya tutorials visit Charlie Serafini's submission here.

In short, the expectation is you will present 3 organised submissions that will make the very best of the work you've undertaken during the year long Toolkit unit.  You are required therefore to curate your work and think about how your assessors are going to experience your submission. Present your work with confidence and with an emphasis on good design and ease of use by others.

Please use your social networks to ensure your classmates have seen this information.  Many thanks.

    1. I can sort this - Simon will provide on Friday and I'll get Nat to publish a list on here asap.
