“[A good artist is] one with imagination and the ability to tell a good story. How well a man draws cuts no ice with me, if what he’s trying to express comes out vague and choppy.” ‐ Jack Kirby
(Sherman cited in Morrow (ED.) 2004, (vol.1) p. 181).

Assessments and Recap for those that missed it: 'Fill in The Gaps"


Find your assessments at the link above ;)

In Class Exercise 1 was the 'Fill in the Gaps', for those that missed it, very simple: You have this model sheet of my Koala character ('Baz'), and you have a 9 panel sequence, where the 2nd board is done, and the last board is "half done"- you need to include the Background/resolve/punchline to the short sequence. Try to stay to the 9 panels total if you can. When doing this, bear in mind the information given in that 2nd panel (but still open to a myriad of interpretations), and selecting appropriate shots, keeping in mind the 180 degree rule too.

And, to remind you, you need to get a solid idea for the final assessment task_ we'll talk more about this next week (taken from the link at the top):

Type: Assignment - Practice-based Assignment
Learning Objectives Assessed: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
Due Date: 
         22 Oct 12     In class presentation, delivery Week 14
Weight: 50%
Task Description: 
Create a story for a predominantly animated short film, however this is not limited to cartoon style
character animation. The story should be around 3 minutes long.
Deliverables include:
visual development artwork (environments, character profile and design, preliminary sketches and reference image folio),
storyboard (including text/dialogue elements, sound design direction and general directors notes).
examples of moodboards of two sequences of varying tones
Full-colour Treatment image (style, genre, proposed visual treatment) - The "look" shot
3 or 4 correctly structured layout or pre-viz shots that concur with industry standards
An animatic is also required that indicates broad timing and pacing for the project.
Further details  and delivery instructions to be announced in class and with assignment handouts in week 2. The project is designed to develop a feasible script for possible production as a graduating project during the program. this is NOT intended to be the final idea that will be made, but a draft development exercise in realising the range of aspects that need to be determined to develop a good short project
NOTE: It is essential that this assignment be developed over the course of the semester, with demonstreted weekly updates on progress and creative development included in the deliverable. Each of the in-class exercises should be attempted alog the theme of this final projecct to develop the idea in many iterations.

Ok, that's all for this post ;)
