Overview of Assessment
Assessment tasks include preparing a series of research projects in the form of technical or artistic tutorials. Students work in teams to produce 2D animation, 3D animation, Compositing/Visual Effects or Interactive/Web/Games tutorials to be accessed throughout the year
Formative tasks provide the basis for ongoing feedback and can be considered essential building blocks for the more substantial summative assessment tasks.
To demonstrate competency in this course you need to complete each one of the following pieces of assessment to a satisfactory standard. You will receive verbal feedback on all assessment from either your teacher or peer (student) feedback. NB: All assessments are COMPULSORY
Formative Assessment tasks (Details in specific assignment briefs)
Assessment task 1: 3D animation research presentations, plans and reviews. Publish a video tutorial detailing a specific technical or artistic 3D animation technique. Include organisational planning documents and peer review assessment. Due Week 4
Assessment task 2: Compositing/VFX animation research presentations, plans and reviews. Publish a video tutorial detailing a specific technical or artistic Compositing/VFX technique. Include organisational planning documents and peer review assessment. Due Week 8
Assessment task 3: 2D animation research presentations, plans and reviews. Publish a video tutorial detailing a specific technical or artistic 2D animation technique. Include organisational planning documents and peer review assessment. Due Week 12
