Anonymous said: Hi there! I'm sorry to bother you, but I'm applying for the Animation Production course at AUB for next September and wondered if you had any tips about what to include in my portfolio/how difficult it is to get a place on the course? Many thanks.
This isn’t a bother at all! I’m glad you’re looking at my course! C:
I’d say for the portfolio:
They really like life drawing- showing understanding of how the body is put together/proportions.
Pieces that show your thought process/development.
Show what you’re passionate about- give them a variety and make sure it’s the work you like and have confidence in.
The lecturers advised us that for portfolios the people looking at them will often remember your weakest piece the most so if you’re happy with all the pieces you’ll be confident and be able to talk about them enthusiastically.
A majority of my portfolio was life drawing and then some pieces demonstrating how I’d then used that practice in my other drawings.
I hope that helps, reading back it sounds a bit vague so please ask again if you need a deeper answer ^^
