Creative Futures – Ending

18 05 2013

Summary and conclusions

All the projects of my Creative Futures are now closed/finished! So in this entry I will summarize and conclude all of them. It has been a lot of tough work, lots of hours and so much experience acquired.

UAB Project:

The UAB project consists in the creation of different science fiction shorts for the the physics department of UAB, related to different physic environmental energy problems. In this project, I had the role of Art Director, but we have done all together lots of different tasks.

This was a very huge project, it is still in development, but it’s stopped. Due to re-arrangements on the teams involved, and the disposal of the different teams, the project has is in pause.

From this project I’ve learnt that big projects requires full disposition. It’s something a full functional studio can do, but as we are students we don’t have the full disposition to accomplish a huge Project like this in a normal time period. And is harder if all the people that works on the project are coursing the last year of their degrees. We’ve already done a lot of work for the project, so this is going to be taken in the near future. In this project I’ve worked with Aleix and Sergi.

3D Wedding Cards:

The 3D Wedding Cards project consists in the creation of digital 3D Wedding cards for a wedding cards catalogue.

This has been a very successful project, and a great experience, at the beginning I thought I wouldn’t upload my work here, but finally I’ve uploaded all the work and experiences I had here in the blog.

Here you can read my conclusions about the 3D Wedding Cards project I did when it finished:

Pirates Videogame:

The Pirates Videogame Project consist in the creation of a Videogame based on “Premia de Mar” village legend. I shared this project with Sergi Petit, he had been the programmer of the game, and I’ve been the designer. We both have done the testing and gameplay aspects.

This has been also a great project, lots of meetings, lots of corrections and changes, but a great result. Finally we only did the playable part of the game, the programming and the design. The cinematic, music, and other aspects are being charged to other people that will work from now on.

I’ve never done a project like this, it’s great to see how with the collaboration of two different parts you can achieve a great product. I’ve worked with Sergi in a very effective and efficient way, it was a really satisfactory process. People of Premia de Mar were very happy with the results, we are really proud about the work done.

Here is the last entry of the project:

You can read all the process from al the projects under the “Creative Futures” section of the blog:

You can found all the designs, information, results, and a whole bunch of details about all the projects I’ve been doing for the Creative Futures during so many weeks.

That’s been a great experience, I’ve produced a lot of projects, and I’ve worked a lot under the requirements of the differents people who have ordered me the different projects. In some projects I had a bit of freedom but other projects had been very bounded, as I had to do exactly what they are demanding. Sometimes is better to have freedom in order to create what you want, but sometimes is easier to have a limited task, because by this way is easier to offer a product that will fit the appropiate preferences and likes.

Referring to Academic projects, I’ve done two CINEMA 4D courses in Barcelona (from november to february):

Cinema 4D – Motion Graphics – 40h

At the begging I thought that C4D was only able to do motion graphics and 3D related to typography and this kind of design. But after doing the course I realized that this program is extremely powerful. The school and the teacher were really great, they also accept doubts through e-mail even after finishing the courses. I’ve done this course with Aleix and Sergi. Nuria have also done this course but not with us.

This is the course I’ve done:

At the end of this course, I nearly learnt how to use Cinema 4D better than Maya. That’s why I decided to do the Advanced Course of Cinema 4D in the same school.

Cinema 4D – Advanced – 24h

This was also great. After finishing this course, I really have an advanced control over the program. After doing this course I’ve totally learnt how to use Cinema 4D better than Maya, that’s why I’m doing the 3D part of my final Project with C4D (if you remember, I’ve also did the tests for my Dissertation with C4D). I’ve also done this course with Sergi and Aleix. And they both are also doing their projects with C4d, we have learnt a lot. With Maya I can do a lot of things, but I done have that level of control. And is great to work controlling every point of what are you doing. Also mograph is a very powerful tool.

This is the advanced course:

With 64h hours of courses in C4D, I really feel very comfortable with this program.
