Phototaking at Stanley Park

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

Today has been an amazing day. Me, Xavier, Rohit and Vinay went to Stanley Park to take photographs. I considered ourselves super lucky because the weather forecast says that this few days will be rainy days. But, to our delight, it didn’t rain at all. It was cloudy at times but the ominous clouds actually add to the mood and beauty of the sky. The whole trip was really really tiring and we sort of wander around, not really knowing where we are going. We sort of got lost twice and end up at some place we had been before. We intended to go Beaver Lake but in the end we got so lost that we couldn’t find it :p By 3pm we were so tired that we decided to head home. All in all, it was a wonderful day and a good escape from school, computers and indoor fluorescent lighting. Below are some samples of photos I took today. You can see the rest in my photography section.

Update for Term 3

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

Long time no update. Term 3 has been really really crazily busy. Fortunately, it just ended and I can take a breather. I updated the 3D and 2d gallery with some of my new works and there is also a new animation which I did with 3 other classmates.

Now that term 3 has ended, this is when the fun part begins. Term 4 onwards, we will be split into our specialization stream and we will take classes specific to our stream. Other than the classes, we will be concentrating on the production of our final project. I will doing my final project with 3 other classmates. Our current stage of progress is pretty good. We basically nailed down an animatic which is pretty representative of the final sequence. We will be doing a visual effects shot and i feel we have design quite a challenging series of effects. Next term, we will be mainly doing research on how we will finally execute them and doing preparation for the actually filming. Hopefully we will be able to find a location as soon as possible and audition our actor. I am definitely looking forward to term 4.
