FAO CAA Yr 1: Your WIM Proformas @ Your Ucreative Accounts

Your What If Metropolis proformas are now at your Ucreative accounts.  Please read your feedback carefully - and read it a few times over.  There's some tough-love in the mix because in many instances it's the habits around making work (or not making it!) that are impacting your percentages.  Some of you have been given some direct instructions.  Some of you have been given more subtle feedback of a more personal kind.  Remember, my goal in giving feedback is to foster improvement for the next project and give you the benefit of my experience - tough love or otherwise!  Anyone not receive their proforma* email me and I'll investigate.

*@Sam Avery - your proforma is at your personal email - see accompanying message.

FAO CAA Yr 2: Critical Perspectives / Proposal Piñata!

Thank you for a lively and provocative debate yesterday!  As briefed, your next job in readiness for next week's bout of Proposal Piñata is to ready a two-part premise that aligns with an existing area of interest for you in terms of a potential dissertation enquiry.  For us to get where we need to go - a tip-top plan for a tip-top year 3 dissertation - you'll need to actually give this exercise some proper, authentic brain time.  I don't want anyone bringing a premise that isn't truly of interest to them, and I don't want anyone just coming up with something a few minutes before the session. Take a look at the guidance below and come up with some provocative combinations.  Any queries or questions or ideas - just email me at pgomm@ucreative.ac.uk

FAO CAA Year 3: Tutorial Times Correction

To confim: 

Tutorials will take place with Phil on Monday mornings not afternoons as detailed in the briefing presentation (list above). The timetable is correct however.

Apologies to anyone effected by the mistake.

FAO CAA Yr 1: Cancelled Class / Apologies!

Apologies for the short-notice re. cancellation of today's Soundscape classes with Kat.  I didn't learn Kat was unwell until after I'd arrived today.  Use your time wisely (there's lots for you to be doing!).  Simon's Maya classes continue as scheduled.

CAA Misc: Chrysopoeia

'In alchemy, the term chrysopoeia (Greek) means transmutation into gold.'

Mesmeric and a bit menacing... and for year one soundscape designers, a must watch!

FAO CAA Yr 1: Reminder / 'Kat Not Vicky' On Monday 16th/23rd January

Just a reminder that, as per your timetable, things are a bit different for the next two weeks: your life-drawing classes with Vicky move to Wednesdays (rotating with Justin's character classes) and your Adobe Audition classes with Kat are on Monday (rotating with your Maya classes).  Your attendance is exactly the same, you're just doing different activities.  I don't want anyone wandering about looking for life-drawing on Monday morning, so if you could use your social networks to ensure everyone has seen this, that would be helpful.  Many thanks!
