Unit 3 - Treasure Island (Uncompleted)


Jackie said...

Hi Naomi!
Just checking to see if you will be in on Monday - I spoke to Gaby yesterday and she said that you are seeing her on Wednesday next week? I thought that on Monday we could go through your essay so far and check that you have enough research etc to build a good argument. Did you manage to get any books out of the library yet? What might be useful, is if you can email me over the weekend whatever you have written so far, then we can get staright into it on Monday! My email again -

Also thought it might be good for you to have this checklist, of what you need to have on your blog for submission - if I was you, I would print it out, and tick it off as the tasks are completed - that way you won't miss anything!
(PS Don't forget the aspect ratio when making your final image!)

Important! Your blog must include:

1) Your final scene.

2) Your final matte painting.

3) Your 16:9 concept art for final scene.

4) 50 thumbnails (minimum).

5) All preparatory studies for concept art & matte painting

6) Your final textures and development

7) Your digital set pipeline (‘Pipeline’ refers to your creative methodology: i.e. how you take a project from a thumbnail sketch to a finished scene.
You are now expected to ‘unpack’ and describe this technical process comprehensively via your blog.)
Pre-Viz, Wireframe Model, Untextured Model, UV Maps, Texture Maps,
Textured Model, Lighting Tests, Rendering Passes (Beauty, Ambient
Occlusion, and Effects),
Please follow links
for examples:

8) Your supporting research for your creative project.
9) Influence maps for your visual concept.
10) Your supporting research for your written assignment.
11) Reviews of the ‘The Unhomely Cinema’ Film programme. Please note – in
addition to and support of your own critique, your reviews must include a minimum of 3
quotations from 3 different published reviews2 + poster art + supporting stills. Please
note - Harvard Method must now be used for all quotations and all illustrations to
be referenced correctly.3 Reviews are to include bibliography and illustration list.
2 Some good online sources for film criticism and reviews include:

12) Life Drawing

13) Your first digital set.

14) Your texture painting exercises (Texture ‘Cubes’ & Textured Model - as
specified in your technical classes).

15) Your camera exercises (specified in your technical classes).
