Graduation and New Designers

My time on the course has come to an end - graduating with Bachelor of Arts (Hons) CG Arts and Animation First Class. I'm immensely proud of my time on the course being an enjoyable and satisfying journey. Three years ago, I never would of believed I could achieve something like this, but here I am today writing this post. But enough sentimental talk as there are a few final things to wrap up.

New Designers
Our New Designers stand was a great success with 5 screens playing our animations/showreels, 3 ever spinning zoetropes, a collection of exquisite making of books and sweet lollies. Needless to say, it made for a very busy stand and gathered a huge amount of interest, including those from various industry contacts which I hope we impressed.

I encourage you to find many more and professional photos here.

The zoetropes gathered a great deal of interest in themselves, so a big thank you is in order to senior lecturer Andy Stead for making them for us. Here I've managed to capture some of the zoetropes going round; with the Isle of Cirrus flying in the sky with clouds moving past and propellers spinning, to Charlotte's girl running with a hoop and Jordan's character turnaround model. Apologies for the poor picture quality but with any luck it should help communicate the sense of charm they had.

Overall, New Designers brought a nice sense of closure to my final year, where it felt wonderful to showcase my hard work for all to see. It was a busy and enjoyable week which will hopefully prove fruitful too.


So - what's next? Well, I think a well earned break is in order and then soon it will be time to look for jobs. In the mean time, I will be working on some personal projects to keep myself going where I'll most likely be starting a new blog too. But fear not, I intend to keep this blog alive and will post from time to time. Perhaps, it will help and inspire for years to come.

Either way, this is not a goodbye but a new beginning. My best wishes to everyone who graduated and the subsequent years on the course. You all know the drill - be amazing.
