Greetings BFA class 2010! Dave Chai requested that I post this up on the blog. Keep in mind that summer projects are often a wonderful way to keep your skills sharp during the break, and they are usually tons of fun.
Our new A/I faculty member, Raquel Coelho, will be working on visual development this summer for an upcoming animated short film project. She is looking for interested visual development students to help for several weeks this summer, starting on July 21st, and meeting every Tuesday and Thursday from 3 to 5 pm.
She will be meeting this Wednesday 6/10 at 3 pm in ART 243 to present the project and see who would be interested.
If you plan on attending, please send a confirmation email to both email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
Details regarding the project are below.
My project is short film telling the story of a brazilian boy who meets a mysterious man. The man gives him a "berimbau" - a musical instrument that has a magical sound. Through the sound of the berimbau the boy will discovery many wonderful things...
This is not a gag or funny movie, it is more like a folk tale. It is set in Brazil. It will be done in 3D computer animation and it will be between 7 and 10 minutes long. There are two main characters, a couple of sets, props and a few chickens too! The idea is to make a piece strong enough to enter the animation festival circuit. I would like to work on visual development during the summer with a group of interested students.
