Directing and Producing

 

Problem solving, decision making, setting up (including detailed planning), making sure all the correct equipment is available, budgeting and planning/monitoring in general as well as keeping updated documentation including production schedules, charts and lists and shot details. This has been extremely beneficial to me; these skills are portable and will unquestionably aid my future projects in animation therapy.

 

Communication is key in any area be it within work or social life. I made sure to set up team meetings, group working sessions, by keeping communication lines open(email, text, Facebook), and also by creating screen recordings of the methods to allow who ever needed the information instant access to it. 

Producer on ‘Boxes’ 

 

Being a producer on Boxes has really developed my time management skills giving me valuable practical experience of managing the group and time constraints of the project. Working as a producer also meant that I had to communicate effectively with different types of personality and ensure that the group was working to the same agreed objective. Other traits I gained experience in were, problem solving, decision making, setting up, making sure all the correct equipment is available, budgeting and planning in general as well as keeping updated production schedules, charts and lists and shot details. I think this has been extremely beneficial to me; these skills will unquestionably aid my future projects in animation therapy. 

 

Boxes is the story of a young man who cannot let go of the past. He built a cave by his boxes of problem. The boxes kept growing putting him in the darkness. In desperation, he decided to put an end to all of this. He almost killed himself in the process but this made him reborn. He got out of the darkness of his problems and for the rest of the time, he realized how beautiful the light is,. He was surrounded by the light of hope. 

I have a filing system I always work to within any project I do. I always back up all my work onto both hard drives and online drives. This is crucial to ensuring ongoing projects both for my own work as well as when responsible for others work.
