Thane, Y11’s blog- 3Dami computer science portfolio

Last year, the computer science department invited Y10 to participate in an animation design competition.
Thane, Y11 built an impressive portfolio of animations. He sent it to 3Dami which was recruiting 30 students across the whole of England to run a virtual summer study workshop. The workshop aimed to create a 3D film from scratch in just 10 days. Thane’s portfolio was accepted:

Over the summer holiday I attended a 2 week 3D animation course over Microsoft Teams (usually it’s a residential in London , however the COVID-19 pandemic prevented that from happening). 3D Ami is a free, not for profit organization that promotes 3D animation to pre-university students. It is funded by universities, studios and creatives.
The course itself covers many aspects of the industry, where students work in teams and organise themselves (Producer, Director ,etc…). We went through the phases of scriptwriting, concept art, storyboards, modelling and animation in order to create our final film.
Whilst we worked, we were supervised and aided by industry professionals. Chloe, who was the leader working with our group comes from the video game and film industry, having worked on titles such as Battlefield 5.
It was an immensely fun and rewarding course and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the industry.
