Level 3 students were tasked with a live brief by Richard Lindle of RSL Design in which they had to select an object and use animation techniques to make it ‘explode’ using Lightwave, After Effects and Photoshop.
Richard was impressed by the level of work and said: “Every student has pulled off this project brilliantly. They’ve worked enthusiastically, having had to model and plan some very intricate parts.”
Fuzzy Frog, develops games for mobile phones for people to purchase.
The college’s HND Year 1 Interactive Media students were asked to create a simple game idea and from that make a short concept video which conveys the idea of the game to the viewer.
Using their interactive media skills students could make the video as simple or as complicated as they wished and base it on a range of game ideas such as a sports game, a racing game or a puzzle. It had to be a minimum of ten seconds in duration and be produced through the character’s eyes in a 3D environment.
In January 2016, Fuzzy Frog’s art director Simon Smalley visited the college to see the students’ concept videos and provide feedback on their designs.
Simon said: “They’ve all delivered exactly on-brief, and to say it’s their first client-led 3D project they’ve displayed real talent.
“I’ve been amazed by the quality of the students’ work and some of the students have gone above and beyond what was asked for."
