Throughout this project I encountered many problems and many success's . I discovered that problem solving is a large part of work. I often would have an idea and then work out ways in which I would accomplish my goal. The project also helped me see my strengths and weakness areas which I can develop on and areas which need vast improvements.
I was confident with my designs , drawing ability and story boards. I found it easy to conceptualize ideas. The project was well suited as I was able to include a lot of my personal interest.
The main obstacle in this project was due to the software and I realize just how important it is to become confident with the software as it can hinder you , as it did with me. The solution to this problem is simple and that is to just keep on practising , I have to live and breathe the programmes so that in future projects I can spend more time developing my ideas rather then learning the tutorials.
I also had some problems with resolution, my Aztec Ident rendered out in good resolution but after I made a final render it was never clear enough. I also had an issue with the Egyptian Ident, my logo would appear faintly in the background to early, I tried to resolve this issue but couldn't work out a way to remove the faint logo. In future projects I will be more careful when adding effects and work in a more professional manner this will hopefully come from more experience in the programmes.
The tutorials were so important to my overall outcome as well as help and advice from the tutors. I was advised to keep my ideas simple rather than getting carried away , this made sense as it is easy to get caught up in you own ambition , yet is is hard to reach your goals.
I am satisfied with the amount of work that I put into this project and realize I couldn't have worked any harder, however I am to take note of time management. I am pleased with the three Idents that I made and like the overal feel of them.
I wanted them to look slightly more polished and professional than they do, however this will just be down to learning the software to a more advanced level. I will carry on learning in my personal time so that in future projects the software will not slow me down. Overall I believe i have enjoyed a very positive learning experience and worked alot harder on this project than my previous ones. This was simply down to me being more determined this year.
