The process of putting together a short film is no easy task! How did you break down each part in order to tackle them?
We had six in our team. Andrea and Pei San specialized in modeling; Wee Lim, Victor and Pei Gin in animation; and Cardin in visual effects. So it was pretty even out as to who was going to have more knowledge on each part, then that person would guide the whole team in the right direction. Time management was the most important thing and something the producer, Andrea, kept in mind all the time. Setting short term and long term goals for the film helped us get to what we wanted more efficiently. And having everyone being aware of every part's progress made it easier for problem-solving and communication.
If you guys could work on any project or at any studio/company after the completion of your course where would you want to go and why?
Pixar, Valve, Blur Studio, Weta Digital etc. Mostly because they are good as not just creating awesome visuals, but also at storytelling.
As you come to the end of your course at The One Academy, are there any particular elements of the course that stood out to you as enhancing your skills?
The lecturers have been the best part of the course. They are knowledgeable and experienced, but they are always willing to share anything and everything with the students. All you have to do is ask and show some dedication in your work. The lecturers have not only guided us this far, but have inspired us to be better artists, giving us great advice about the industry. I think we wouldn't have learnt so much without them, for they have taught us what we could not learn from books and tutorials online.
