UArts Day exercise from Christopher Magee on Vimeo.
today the whole school was asked to participate in a day of speed-art community building, if I interpret correctly the larger aim. animation got together to decide on a theme for a piece. two were chosen: "explosions" and "one character eats another." we ran out of time for the eating thing - two many drawings, but managed to squeeze out from 1-3 seconds per person of exploding things. my effort above.
here's my party frog.
this event could have been held a lot earlier in the semester, to allow for new friendships to spring up - at this point, everyone has final projects on their minds, and this was essentially a speed bump before thanksgiving break.
we did have a good time, and ate pizza for lunch. the animation students are a jolly bunch, a pleasure to be around, putting up with this mandatory togetherness (they were counted "absent" if they didn't show up) with good cheer and good humor.
karl did an fine job of screening inspiration in the morning, elliot finished his piece with blinding speed, and we ended up with a little pile of...explosions. will post if it gets posted.
