Conflict and End sentence

For the group Project we have to create an animation based on two things, a conflict and an end sentence. 
We had to pick both of these two things from envelopes, and this is what we got.

Looking forward to the ideas we come up with for these.


Welcome one and all

Welcome to D4C Studios blog!

We are four second year computer animation students who have to come together to create a group project as part of our narrative project.
This post is just a introduction to who we.

"Hi I'm Hannah, and I'm an animation student in the making. My interests would obviously be art and animation/ film, but I also enjoy music, live performances, travelling and find new adventures. 
Originally I wanted to do a fine art degree, but found computer animation course was way more up my street as I already had a love for animation films and games.
The dream after I finish uni would be to work for a games or film industry, and hopefully in a few year be able to say I worked on the next best game or film to be released.

"Hi, my names Brad King, Team Leader of D4C Studios!  My hobbies include but aren't limited to, DJ'ing (which has now become my primary source of income), Snowboarding (which is what I spend all of said income on), watching 80's movies and building Airfixs of WW2 Planes. I originally came from a Engineering background where I wanted to eventually study Aeronautical Design as I wanted to build planes in real life too, but found the physics side of it immensely boring, so decided to focus on the CAD that I had started at the time.
Originally my goal after graduating was to go into film and start designing models for film, but over time the animation side has grown more and more on me, I have found 2D and 3D animation very enjoyable and would potentially enjoy going working on either form of animating post Uni."

"My names Ian Garling and I'm 20 years old. My hobbies include skateboarding and watching films. The reason why I love animation is it allows you to bring things to life, make the impossible possible, you have endless possibilities which makes it extremely enjoyable for me. My main goal for after the course is to create my own animation TV show. I really like this idea because it will allow me to present my work to people around the world who will hopefully enjoy the animation as much as myself."

"My name is Aureo Antonio, and I'm A Second a year student at UCA studying BA computer animation arts. My Interests are listening and making music, video editing, manga/anime, drawing and dancing."

Logo Design Process

Once the group came up with a name for our studio, and set about designing the logo.
I went through many iterations and the team and I bounced around many idea's and gave feedback on changes, until eventually we got the final design.

"Looks too much like the fantastic 4 logo"

I started off with some simple ideas and then fed back to the group, which we discussed and developed into more ideas and variations  

We decided that the compass style idea had been used too many times before, so we decided to stay away from this idea and continue to develop the logo. 

I eventually tried working in a skull in to the design after a suggestion from the group. I felt like the side of the skull didn't really look that great, so started to look at it from the front.

The group and I really liked the skull idea, so then looked at how we could incorporate the name into the logo. We looked at how the teeth could could be letters that look like teeth.

So once coming up with the rough ideas we spoke as a group to then see how we could develop this to become out final design.

The four final thumbnails.

So this are final designs for our logo. I have created the logo in three different colours. The two monochrome logos are just generic one with we can use universally throughout our work. And the colour logo is for promotional use.

Name Ideas

So before we came up with a name for our studio, we had to discuss possible options for the name and one that we all agreed on. some of the suggestions were;

  • Studio Diversity
  • Clouds Production
  • Illusion Production 
  • Rising Motion Studios
  • Sun Art Studios
  • Inter Light Films
  • Obscure Pictures
In the end we ended up going to with D4C Studios, which is shortened down from Designs 4 Creatives Studio. 
We like this one as it was simple and described who we are, four design students who are all creating work to fulfill projects and go on to do greater things.
