GENERAL CHAT » BARRY'S BACK!
Now,if i didn't pay any of them equitment,will my videos be a success,like for instance out of the nowhere,people would watch it
So what have you got in the pipeline for us Chocachoc! Are you going to be making a small animated episode of Barry or just experimental work! An episode would be awesome! I remember like a year ago you did some animation tests on a grassy set!
Are you thinking of studying animation at University??
I'm going to be doing little shorts, like the one I uploaded (the one with sound is the finished short), which will have little stories. They will be uploaded in spaces of at least a month, because of soundsnap being my sound resource now.
I don't think I'm going to, no. When I was on here before I was really set on studying animation at uni, but now I am on route to try to get into vet medicine college. I'm taking all sciences and maths. What do/will you study for A level?
Are you in upper 6th looking at unis, did you say?
I am goooing to study animation at uni as it is my real passion now By the way chocachoc, all the sounds really made it work a lot better! I sent you an email by the way... :P
Yeah I'm in Upper 6th! Pretty important year! Yeah, I'll be applying for Ba(hons) Animation on UCAS in the next few weeks! I've been getting all my animations ready for my portfolio and interviews! I've got a massive A3 pad and just stuck loads of sketches and pictures of my animations from over the years! Animation is a pretty competitive subject! Good luck with your A levels. I currently take art, design technology and geography! Loads of coursework already!!!
I've used a bit of soundsnap for the latest Green Roots episode, great library of SFX!
@ Thetopbun where are you thinking of studying animation?
I am thinking of going to Bournemouth but it depends. Bournemouth is one of the best in England for animation but depending on the other subject you want to do at Uni it might not be best for you. I want to do animation and film studies so it is just fine There are some other places but I recommend getting one of the university guides and see what is best for animation depending on what you want to do...
Vincent do you want to see my work and stuff so far? I am also going for a Bachelor degree and if you started animation when you were younger/before starting uni then you are most likely to get a 1st!
They should teach you the basics wherever you go but most people who I speak to (someone at Aardman and a few other graduates) say that it is mostly self taught.
GOOD LUCK BOTH OF YOU!
Thanks TTB, you too! Yeah I'd love to see your work!
That sounds great, both of you! What year are you in, thetopbun?
I am trying to understand how your grades work, what is upper sixth in comparison to american grades, like a High school senior(12 grade)? or junior(11th grade)?
Upper Sixth is like the top of High School...
Choca can you reply to my email? :P I would not like to reveal my age on here even though you are a nice community
Let's just say I am not far off university and leave it at that...
Vincent can I somehow work out how to privately contact you (not on the forum)? Thanks :P
Hey everyone,i would like to contact you aswell,even though i am in the high school of middle years,very intelligent me
But,i would like to say,how do you make a youtube video watchable,like how do you know if its a flop or success,any tips?
And can i join in on your chat,because i'm looking forward to colleage in a couple of years,and i need to know decisions next year!
I don't really know how to get more views, maybe send out messages to other youtube users that create animations, similar to what iantimothy said. Do what he said :P
Yeh...I kinda wanna talk toy uo about it. And like you rate each video and see if i can improve.
Yeh, just promote it on loads of animation sites. Maybe enter a few competitions and if you win you will get highly known and if you don't you will get some good tips out of why you didn't come first
Hey, anyone, how do you find out about competitions, as I would like to enter a few
Do you know of any UK ones going on at the moment?
Yeh,i want to know more,he-he. Soo,can you be my online animator buddies
Yeh I know a few going on but I don't know if you mean, you go to the place or just enter online...or both? Do you know about the Animex Festival etc.?
Chocachoc theres not really much in the Uk! However there are a few film festivals you can send movies too. Green Roots was shown last April at the Leeds young film festival! Just have a poke around on google! Its difficult but you may find something! I'll let you know if I find anything!
There may be some soon!..
No, I don't, i'll look it up later
Yeah, I mean online competitions
Oh, thanks vincent
Yeh if you look on google you see that Manchester does a competition every year. The Animex Festival is quiiite big and nofby is entering in that with his short.
This is pretty much what you want to look at:
Oooh,that's only a mile away
That's ok By the way Choc...I am waiting :P
I just got my set out again!!! My grass and sky one (the only one ) I made an animation including an item I saw in firebox.com because I don't actually have the item, but I'd quite like to win 50 quid to pay for one myself . Good plan, in theory, ay :L
I'll be one happy chappy if I get 50 quid to spend in firebox!
Haha! I might just enter and try to beat you so I can get £50 :P
Hehe go ahead, :P
Chocachoc, what was the item? :P
Hey! The item is slush mug. I've acctually gone ahead and bought it now, soi hope to get it in the post this week
Hey guys! This is the slush mug video I made! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yItsGNxpyU
Also, I got the mug a week or so ago, and its fantastic
I hope you like my video
By the way, I'm doing an extended project at school on animation and will be making videos for it so if you have any ideas for a barry the snail short story then please tell me
I won £50 from firebox by the way, guys Slanket anyone
