To 1st, and 2nd Years

Well congrats to everyone for the completion of the films! Apparently we're the first year to have completely animated films handed in on time! Woo hoo! I have my own thoughts about the films this year, I think it's safe to say Poof, and Apocalatte were the best in terms of animation...

... buuut third year is about the experience of working with a group of people, working with deadlines even though you have other classes, and of course, getting yourself a portfolio and a co-op.

Unfortunately in third year you can't always get the quality you expect under a full school load. Especially since not all your group mates are going to be as strong as you or the next student, or even have the same initiative or drive to work hard on the film.

My overall experience was delightful, and even though our film, Steeped, wasn't the most fantastic one in the lot, i'm happy with what I contributed, and the rest of my team did as well.

By the way, if anyone gets to watch the films again, ours was really layout heavy and I hope some people noticed that and were able to appreciate it! :)
