Here are the key points for the CVA207 Industry Exercises Brief:
This unit builds directly on the Industry Exercises 1 unit, allowing students to broaden their range of professional animation skills or to develop existing areas to an advanced level. Students also develop more advanced planning and organisational skills essential in the delivery of a completed project within a fixed schedule.
Students will complete two projects in this unit, one can be self‑initiated (negotiated with tutor) or students may choose to revisit an exercise which was not developed fully in the Industry Exercises 1 unit. The second project is an explicit production schedule for the term, that demonstrates competent use of scheduling software to model potential outcomes. Student projects must have a clear focus on the development of industry relevant skills, their overall artistic or creative style, and contribute significantly to the demonstration of their employability in their final show reel.
These practical exercises are supplemented by a reflective commentary.
11. Aims of the Unit
To enable students to supplement possible career specialisms within the animation industry through the development of ancillary skills.
To enable students to further develop portfolios of work demonstrating advanced proficiency in the specialism of their choice.
To provide experience of establishing and developing personal project schedules and tracking progress towards project completion.
To further develop critical awareness within the students of their personal skills, and the ability to generate research strategies for continuing enhancement.
