Third Year, Computer-Generated Drawing

Third Year CG Drawing

Students must carry out a project in which they are able to demonstrate their abilities as CG draughtspeople and to display their personal aesthetics in one of the following fields:·         Video Games·         Animated Film-making·         Web·         Strip Cartooning·         Illustration Project monitoring occupies much of the students’ schedules and, particularly, in monitoring production, which is an essential link of realizing images or doing CG animation. During the oral defence of this personal project, students must enable the jury to clearly understand their creative process, their approach and the technical processes that were used.A portion of this final year is spent on how the student communicates:  how they “sell” themselves, how they should prepare an interview, how they should prepare their professional portfolio, how they should distribute their images via the Internet, what each professional status involves (freelance, salaried position, etc.), how professionals draft an invoice, an estimate, etc.
