Course Assessment Board - 5 June

Hi all,

I've just had confirmation that the Course Assessment Board (CAB) will be held on Friday 5th June. At this board all full-timer grades and the part-timers' first two modules will be presented for approval.

What this means for you guys is that sometime during the following week you will be given your grades - and for the successful full-timers your awards. There are four awards available FIRST, UPPER SECOND 2:1, LOWER SECOND 2:2, and THIRD.

Also any referrals will be set at this board. If you are not successful then you will only have a two week period to work on the referral before it needs to be re-submitted. The deadline is immutable and cannot be re-arranged if you are on holiday.

I'll be in touch. Good luck everyone.

FUSE - HE degree show 19th May

Hi everyone,

Just to let you know that all next week will be the HE Arts Degree Show in the Forum in Brook Street.

Myself, Steve and Dave did try and garner interest from you all with little effect. So Dave Roberts will be unveiling his digital artwork at the event and everyone will be represented on a DVD showreel. I'll take work from your submitted work.

I'd urge everyone to come (there's free drink). The degree show is really the culmination of your year, and the last opportunity for you to see each other.

Show is on between 6:30 to 8:30.

Nobody said it was going to be Easy

But they didn't say it was going to be this Hard.

Congratulations everyone, for some of us the fat lady is singing and its all over for others another year to go, but we all deserve a weekend of relaxation. I hope you are all planing to exhibit, you really should its a great night. If I can help anyone with printing and mounting just let me know.

For those I don,t see at the exhibition good luck for the future and stay in touch via the blog.

Before everyone vanishes there are some module feedback forms that need completing. Please pick them up from my desk tomorrow and complete before you leave.

Here are my final Vehicle Concepts at bloody last i say im glad to have everything sorted now just got to get it all together now :)

Sharing a frustration

A frustrating aspect of writing is spending time developing a sentence or paragraph till it reads and sounds really well, then to find it doesn't fit into the body of work and has to be dumped.

Message for Tony. Need your help mate?

Alright Tony im just wondering if you could help me out in anyway. Since we are both going to be implementing our characters into the unreal engine have you got any info on the restrictions that you have to follow when putting our models into the unreal editor. Im absolutely clueless about this so any info you can provide me would be great. Its all stuff to do with poly counts texture sizes etc.
