Start of term and a new year

January 11, 2014 Leave a comment

It’s the end of the first week back at college after the holidays. What have I been up to and what is on the horizon?

  • Finished One Game A Month 2013 and ranked number 8 in the high scores
  • Started One Game A Month 2014 and am planning only two games this year, one made with my students (until May) and then a personal project after that.
  • Teaching a variety of subjects this term – Fashion photography, Photography Graded Unit 2 (HND), 2D animation, 2D Animation (Advanced), Games: Media Assets, Portfolio Production, Portraiture, Corporate Photography. The new block starts in March, but most of my subjects continue until June.
  • Anticipating a change of management at work. As part of the college merger process a number of head of department jobs have been advertised internally, so each department may have a different manager in the very near future. Uncertain times!
  • Started teaching on the Adobe Generation Animation course this week and am looking forward to starting a new course on Video in February.
  • Heading to Aberdeen in February to run an animation workshop at the Aberdeen Learning Festival.
  • Looking forward to participating in, but not teaching, the Adobe Generation App Design & Game Design courses later in the year.
  • Looking forward to publishing my first comic book in March and releasing a short film in April (details soon).
  • Hoping to start on a World War 2 history project in the Summer.
