Warwickshire College - Foundation Art and Design (2013-14)
For this course, I needed a new Final Major Project to show off My work throughout the year. Being an Art and design course I was unable to have any technically behind my work. Instead, I had to have a theory. I based this on the obsession of tea at the start of the year but following this, I looked into more obsession and came across Fandoms. I then looked into the why and how it is obsessive to some people. Finally, I showed my work though some little men I had created showing a range of fandoms along with a quote from the show about the fandom life. This was an experiment for the people who liked the fandoms would take more notice than others and also the people, not in the fandom wouldn't really understand that quote below them.
Tea Party Poster
The Tea Theme has come a long way and now I have a Graphic Project. I started to draw out some ideas on what my poster will look like. I then chose 2 of my best ideas and expanded on them to improve them until I found a design I really liked. I then started to make this idea come true by testing new idea along the way until it was the best it can be. This was difficult for me as I was unable to use anything digital besides my phone to photograph it. But I was able to overcome this in the end.
Home Sweet Home
This is a massive drawing of my house that is 4 A2 piece of paper stuck together. I had a photograph of my house then I printed onto acetate paper. This was so I could place it on an OHP and be able to draw this massive sketch of my house onto these sheets of paper.
Drawing on Walls
While in class, we had a day to experiment with our drawing. The whole class placed up a huge roll of paper against the wall and rolled it across the wall while typing it down along the way until the whole wall was covered. We then went out and drawn whatever we saw for operation. The class then drew what they have seen in their sketch books out onto the walls of the classroom. We then added to each others work to then have a final masterpiece
I used the theme of the Mad Hatters Tea Party to base my project around. I had a few projects to contribute my team into throughout the year. I had to use this theme by using different methods such as typewriting where I wrote 'I am not mad' on behalf of the Mad Hatter then I used a method called etching where I scratched an image in a piece of plastic and the spread ink into the scratches and pressed it with paper to create the image above.
Warwickshire College - Interative Media (2011-13)
Dual Ark (Official Music Video)
For my Final Major Project of the course, I wanted to place all my skills together. I decided to create my own fake band for which I created all the merchandise and promotion towards the band. I started thinking off 101 names and then went onto designing all the graphics for this band. After this, I got my Band together and recorded some music from them. After I had the main song I was able to create a music video for the band. after the video was made I used images from my shoots to create merchandise such as the CD, posters, and T-shirts. I then also had a band logo that was also placed onto merchandise. Finally, I placed the band online and made a website where I collectively place all my work together. At the end, I presented my work in the End of Year show where others were able to view my work as they please to do so.

Drink Driving Poster
Poster Project to raise awareness to Drink Driving. Here I had to design a poster that shown the dangers of Drink driving. Here I took a photograph of my classmate's feet to look like she was in a morgue. I then took the image into Photoshop to make it look more interesting and stand out more.
I started using Flash for an animation Project. I used a method called rotoscoping,this is where you can see the original image in the background and you are able to draw over it making it into an animation. I used this on a music video to make the video an animation to practice the skill more.
Painting With Light
Painting with Light was a fun, exciting experiment with photography. I enjoyed making different shapes of my friend and also using colored light was interesting. This makes photography more interesting than it already was.
Above are 2 images taken on a Conley Folding camera where I had to squeeze a ball to send the air to the camera, this then makes the shutter close and take the photograph. This means I'm able to take a photo of myself as well as others.
Avril Lavigne - Parody
Here is a video titled "Avril Lavigne - Anything But Ordinary Parody" For this project we had to create any kind of video that shows a story and is 2:30 mins long. Also, we had the challenge to make the video we had created gain the most views out of the whole class. My video was the one that won this challenge. My video is based on a singer called Avril Lavigne. I picked one of her songs that didn't have a music video and created my own version for that song. This was a fun filming and editing together.

Here is just a quick video to demonstrate the different types of camera angles you have while filming different projects. This was just a small project I did for myself.

For a Stop Motion Project, I had to make and create a short animation using a plasticine model. I build up my own model by creating a skeleton then wrapping the plasticine around it. Then I made and painted a set to take my stop motion photographs with my model. Finally to finish off I edited all the photos together and also added voiceovers and sound for a finished Project.
While getting to grips with a program called LightWave, I was given the task to create a toyshop for my Coursework. I created all the toys for the shop as well as the shop itself. After creating all the toys I then placed them in the shop I made and then made a little video of a Toy Rabbit jumping off the counter and knocking over some toys along the rabbits way.
