WEEK 5: Game Project Development DESN 3010: Assignment 2 Due in 2 weeks

Reminder: Today is the last day to drop courses.

I hope you're all digging into the planning stages for your next project. It's a lot of work, thumbnailing, but I suggest you draw at least a basic plan before diving into the 3D world. Remember the little Wall-E clip I showed you - before they started posing they drew thumbnails of their ideas and worked out potential poses in rough before taking it to the next level. This week I want to see everyone upload a basic plan to Trello so we can have a look at your WIP. Next week please have your basic blocking done. 

If you're doing an alternate to animation - such as particles, dynamics, etc. please make a real plan without even turning on the computer. I want a strong concept and not just a tech demo. You can do a lot with a little creativity. I'm happy to work with you to make your piece look great. We'll get you working with a mentor who's been through the process before. Keep an eye on the new advancements in real-time dynamics - there have been a lot of tech papers and demos released recently you'll want to know about, such as here:
