First Years Animation Festival Debut
First Time Animators show at festival.
Recently Communication Design Students in their first year of study were given a project that would challenge them, they would have to work in teams to a tight deadline with processes new and technically demanding. The brief was to produce an stopmotion animation, with the potential for the finished results to be part of a local animation festival.
The Students had a two week turnaround to go from being presented with a short section of music to editing a finished animated sequence. The students who worked in groups of three had for the most part never worked with animation before so the tight deadline on these early stage students really put the pressure on.
The work however was a very high standard and all of the students put int eh hours and delivered the work which has subsequently been accepted for the Animation Festival.
