Adobe ‘See What’s Possible’ Competition

Around mid March I entered an animation competition for Adobe’s ‘See what’s Possible’ promotion. The brief was to make an animation no longer than 2 minutes using adobe software that would feature the Photoshop logo and the ‘See What’s Possible’ strap line. My entry took just under two weeks for me to make and was a great experience for me. Having never entered a competition before, it was good to work on a competitive project with a tight deadline and other great and well know artist to compare to.

Journey By Matt Jones

The Animation shows the journey of a Photoshop creation, from the initial sketch to textures and eventually environment. The animation depicts the process in a non-literal way, showing that it’s possible to create a unique life structure from nothing but Adobe tools, a sketch and an idea.

I feel I have learnt some new techniques from working on the project particularly to do with textures and lighting, but most of all I am certain that my work pace has increased incredibly. From this experience I can safely say I will be entering more competitions as there is a lot to be learnt from the experience and the outcome is another powerful video in my portfolio, with a big brand name attached.

Yellow Drum Machine

This little yellow robot roams around looking for something to drum on. It plays a beat, samples the sound, makes sure it is good, and creates little rhythms over the top. It’s a fantastic concept that is executed well, I would like to spend some time on this kind of technology perhaps for the third year project. But does this creation fit into ‘Interactive media’, it has no real user to robot interaction, no interface however, it does interact with its environment in a dynamic and entertaining way.
