Today is the official start to my placement year which I have split between a few different areas. To fulfill my university’s requirements for my placement year I have to do 25-48 weeks of work placement or other material relevant to my course. As part of my assessment for placement year I must keep a log of my activities and will be doing so using my blog.
I have divided my placement into three areas for the year.
- Beginning in September I will be taking part in an internship with a studio called Digital Shoguns in London, where I will be mainly doing character animation along with other tasks.
- I am also going to return to my high school in Northern Ireland,as a guest speaker addressing students thinking about going on to study animation and film at university.
- For the majority of my placement though I will be working for Slack Press in Newry, a local social enterprise, dedicated to building community and story telling.
I am very much looking forward to taking part in all of this.
