The coming semester is devoted to your film’s production but it also has a secondary purpose -- to prepare you for the business realities of life outside the College. Lectures and workshops will address not only production issues but also other concerns such as small business management, legal considerations for artists, development insights for animation projects, and panel discussions with recent grads to gain perspectives into what lies ahead. Keep an eye on the Lecture schedule page on this blog for details as they become available.
MilestonesRegarding the Production Milestones, you can take a look at the outline for the semester here (pdf) ((also available on SLATE.) It lays out the production and post-production timeline for the coming semester. Especially important is Milestone 2, the Scene Workflow Test, which is due in Week 2. (I'll explain this one in our lecture on Wednesday.)
Lectures & Workshops Move this Semester
The lectures this semester will take place in J102. The screenings in Week 8 and Week 13 will take place in SCAET S235 to take advantage of the Christie Projector in that room.
The workshops make a small lateral move to A150, next door to the last semester's lab.
