I’ve got to say, I’m pretty sad to see this class come to an end. It was such a great mix of people, I took a lot away from it, and I got to work on some of the most enjoyable projects I’ve ever done. It especially opened my eyes further to stop-motion and pixellation, which I definitely intend to continue doing–I’ve got several ideas and plan to use my Christmas break to work on a couple new pieces. With this final critique, it was great to really see the variety of everybody’s work, as there was no specific medium assigned. As ever, there were some pieces that really fell flat for me, but I did notice that some people really pushed themselves to create something awesome, and I could tell that a few folks really stepped outside of their comfort zone in order to make something they might not have made ordinarily. Overall, I was satisfied with my piece, but I do wish I could have made it a bit longer…Perhaps I shall edit it a bit over break…And I’m still kind of kicking myself for misspelling “fuel.” I mean, really? Fuel? Feul? But oh well. I think part of what I really enjoyed about class was there was enough freedom with the projects assigned to really put a piece of myself into each one. Each assignment felt not so much like homework, but rather was both a pleasure, a chance to delve deeper into myself, and a therapeutic release. That being said, I really hope I encounter more classes like this one in my future semesters.
