News Prototye Feedback

After showing our group news prototype video in class, our tutor gave us some feedback and a couple of things to change.  It was mostly to do with the speed of particular parts of the video so here is the fixed video.


Model Sheets

After researching various aspects of steampunk clothing and accessories I started on my model sheets to hopefully get my ideas started.

These are what model sheets I’ve done so far.  I’m also going to photograph lace material, cogs, chains and a few more materials.

After receiving our first project brief with a range of different topics to take on I decided to choose the steampunk option.  To Start off this project I researched steampunk items to see what there already was out there.

5 Line Stories

In our script writing workshop we also learnt about 5 line stories.  After we did our group work we had to conjure up our own 5 line story.  I tried to draw quick sketches of my character but I couldn’t get her to not look so old.

Beginning of a New Semester!

Today was my first class for my Moving Image module and I really enjoyed it! I’ve been looking forward to doing Moving Images since the start of this school year because I haven’t done it since A-level and I’m eager to get to do it again.  I’m hopeful for the massive change in skills, standard and methods that I will use and be taught at this level compared to A-level.  Our first class was an introduction to what we will be covering this semester but our afternoon class was a workshop on script writing.  To be honest script writing isn’t something I like that much because I’m not very theatrical or dramatic.  Once I was in class though I quite enjoyed it because it is more than just what is said.  We had to work in groups to make up an environment, characters and plots.  It was hard to get started but once we did we got on great. The images attached are the idea’s that we, as a group, came up with.

New Brief

Today we had a talk from the people we are designing an app for.  They want an app for local health check facilities so people in deprived areas can have the quickest and easiest access to the information they need to get checked out.


Animating Our Screens

After designing our still images of our screens and the scenarios, we took our screens into after effects to animate them.  I love this part of the task because I really like working with after effects and love to see things come together.  We used our background images we had previous as the background for this task, although after I had all the movements of my assets done I replaced my images with the actual music video instead to get the full effect.


Protoypying Workshop

For our workshop class we had to work in groups and make up a prototype of a screen.  My group worked on a news screen and a breaking news story coming in.  Working in groups is a chance to learn from each other and even though we had various different ideas we came to agreements without any discrepancies.  I personally think we did really well in considering the space of time we had to do the task.

New Semester Means New Modules

To start off our Graphic Design for Screen module we had a tutorial class where we used a screen from a TV show and done our own assets like logos, name titles and different scenarios.  I decided to do a music channel so I chose MTV.  Below are some of my screen shots of different scenarios.

While working on my editorial publication I was working on experiments with various photographs I have that I took myself to give myself a bit more experience with different fonts, layouts and how the type works with a picture.
