On Tuesday afternoon i went in college to do my portfolio presentation. I feel that it went quite well, especially considering that i have anxiety when public speaking. I did have a bit of a hiccup half way through, where i forgot what to say, but continued anyway. I think they liked my VFX project (where my dog Phoebe disappears through a fire portal), as i heard a chuckle or two.
Afterwards i was sent out of class for a minute while the lecturers deliberated. When i was brought back in, they told me that they didn’t know whether to give me a pass or a merit. In the end they decided on a merit, but i have lots to improve on and they gave me lots of constructive criticism. Since i like art, and it is the subject i will specialise in next year, they felt that i didn’t put enough of my artwork in the presentation. A lot of the art I’ve done are just sketches, so i was hesitant to include them. They also said that to get a distinction i should work to make everything the best quality it can be.
