This project has gone quite well for me, I have been pleased with the work my group has produced. I have enjoyed collaborating and have learned a lot about working in a group and producing an animation in general.
I wish I had produced a larger body of work for the concept designs. Particularly the sets, as this would have helped my teammate when he came to model them. Though I was pleased with the overall look I designed for the hair salon.
I underestimated the time needed for sound design and will need to keep this in mind for future projects. I also overestimated the quality of sounds I could record with a microphone I had, I will make sure I have better equipment in future. And plan enough time to get a proper place to record them. I need to make note of how long things take me so that I can plan properly in the future.
I enjoyed making the credits for the film and putting the 'Making Of' together. I learnt quite a lot in this area and would like to continue to develop my knowledge here, particularly as I was not as efficient as I would like.
Working with others was something I was worried about as I was unsure how I would interact with them in a stressful situation. It turned out to be easier than I expected to keep a level head and to communicate clearly when under pressure. My teammates were very good to work with and I understand that this will not always be the case, I will just keep this in mind for the future.
I would like to collaborate more in the future, I really enjoyed sharing ideas with other people. It was interesting and enjoyable to see our work come together to make something that I could not have made alone, but can see my efforts in.
