There was some lecture (given with their charming Kiwi accents) -
We got to hear about some of their Hobbit movie designing - which was awesome.
Then we were given an official concept-design assignment of our own to work on in class.
Working hard - with lots of input from our fearless leaders.
There was visual research -
- and working in all sorts of mediums. From full out digital-kits -
- to completely traditional. Ie, good, old-fashioned pencil!
More hard working.
More instructor input.
More media options.
It was actually pretty amazing watching these guys' brains and fingers at work.
A fabulously focused and awesome first day! Looking forward to tomorrow!
