BA (Hons.) GRAPHIC DESIGN – END OF MODULE SELF-EVALUATION
Module Code – OUGD202 Module Title Design for Digital Media
1. What skills have you developed through this module and how effectively do you think you have applied them?
At the start of this module i was in doubt of how far i could push my final resolution when it came to using after effects, because Im not as you say “a computer head”, although i had previously used this in the silent movie brief, i had kept it simple, this was because i struggled with the program and found it all quite confusing.
I have come away from this module with such a higher understanding of after effects and a broader knowledge of motion graphics. Im more confident using computers and im very pleased and proud to have completed my first animation with sound and enjoyed making the most of the 50secs given to create it.
2. What approaches to generating work and solutions to problems have you developed and how have they helped?
Alot of thorough development, i set myself a plan each day to look at as many different imagery from my choosen subject and document them by posting on my blog. The more i looked and read about the more my knowledge grew and
a variety of possible solutions began to come to mind.
3. What strengths can you identify in your work and how have/will you capitalise on these?
I feel my strenghths were my preperation for my animation, i spent very long time re-creating all of the game backgrounds, type and characters, and also the variety of separate frames for movement of the character.
4. What weaknesses can you identify in your work and how could you exploit these more fully?
I should have been more organised with my work arranging and numbering all of my documents not just some of them, this would have saved me from wasting time searching for files to pace into my i web or blog.
I should have sketched more of my initial ideas down in storyboards.
5.Identify five things that you will do different next time and what do you expect to gain from doing these?
To organise my work, this would enable no time wasted on backtracking, re-naming or losing files.
To have explored iweb more to see what other possibilities i could have come across.
6.How would you grade yourself on the following areas: (please indicate
using an ‘x’) 5= excellent, 4 = very good, 3 = good, 2 = average, 1 = poor
