Looking back on this year I have learnt quite a few things. I need to put more into my work and definitely research more. I am, however, proud of the work that I have produced. I have taken away a lot from all my tutors. I feel that I have very bad time keeping skills, and within each semester I have neglected one thing. In the first semiester I wasn't too sure what was required from digital skills so that got put aside, and with the second semester I've been so keen to get into the group project and digital skills that I've neglected my essay. Each semester I have been learning from my mistakes and now know where I go wrong.
Next year I'm very keen to start putting more into my work and I hope that there may be another chance to do a group project again because I enjoyed it so much. I'm hoping that next year I can develop the skills I've learnt even further and hopefully learn some new animation styles. I am very keen to try some stop motion animation and model making. To my surprise I have rather enjoyed doing hand drawn animation, even though before this course it seemed like the worst and most frightful form of animation for me because my drawing skills aren't that good. I have also redeveloped my love for 3D animation whereas last year when I was doing a CG course I lost that love for it. Overall this course has given exactly what I wanted from it, I wanted to explore several different forms of animation and this course is everything I expected and I'm so pleased that I found a course to suit me.
This is just the DVD menu. I wanted to stay consistant with the look of it

This is a small video showing the different ways you can move an object using the F-curve editor
This is a quick thumb nail drawing working out the timings for my ball bounce in softimage, I used the timings we wrote down in Andy's workshop as a starting point but adjusted the scale in softimage by eye. Below is the exercise Jon set for us with the ball trying to bounce over the wall.
