Student Profile(s)

James Simpson

Since starting this course I have been finding it very easy to get inspired, especially whenever I watch a film and see what I could do with the skills I am learning. In particular I have recently been reading a lot of magazines, books and online tutorials on CGI which show you tools to support your creative ideas. Most of all I speak to my colleagues on my course, and my course tutors who happily share knowledge with each other and discuss ideas and tools which really get the creative juices flowing. This is always very evident after we have worked together on group work and you see how energised everyone is sharing ideas and collaborating to produce a single piece of work that has the best of all our ideas put together.
