Here we have work produced by student Tom Phillips of Unit 15 from the University of Greenwich with his final animation for Part II.
After a long 9 months of year 1 part II there have been many things that I have learnt about myself as an individual and about Architectural education. Industry and education do not align but rather knowledge and application. Having more tools at your disposal determines how successful your campaign will be. I have struggled this year with creativity and execution. I had an interest in my subject at the start but it waned and it was very difficult for me to get into my projects and push them forward. My time during work experience allowed me to experience new things meet interesting people but it didn’t do much for my creativity because I didn’t supplement it with readings or looking at precedents and kind of creating a creative language or outlet for myself. My tutors this year a great talented individuals but my lack of interest in myself and lack of self belief made it difficult for them to help me. My approach to my project was too literal and then the execution struggled because the tweaking became too much I had an ok start to the year then confidence was rocked. So what I can take away is that in any venture you have to have confidence in your idea and execute it by any means having incomplete ideas is not always a negative but it can equally do great harm if you’re fixated on it. Architectural education allows you to flex your creativity and works more as an outlet before one would get into the logistics and other boring stuff. Failure is only not an option if you’re not willing to learn from it. I did feel like giving up but now I don’t wish to do that because I know what can be accomplished. I’m gonna keep practicing and keep reading and be more active on this blog not to just showcase my work but have discussions with anyone who is willing to and to give my opinion on subject matters.

Looking at styles
Some of the things I like to do; watch films and play video games. Now its time to use that and see what inspiration I can draw from them to develop my own style for visulisations. Setting the narrative and pacing will be key.
Here are some of the things that have stuck in my mind from those interests;
Hideo Kojima – Metal Gear Solid Series
Nicolas Winding Refn – Drive
Joseph Kosiski – Tron Legacy
