Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
Does anyone remember the 'event registration numbers' earlier and then later? That'll probably give you an idea of how many are applying.
How are the tours anyways? I'm dropping off my Illustration portfolio on Saturday and wondering if I should go or not. I've already been on two tours (open house and school trip).
I went on monday,
You hand in your portfolio around 8:30~10am
You get back your portfolio around 3 PM.
The place is located in a tall building that has a weird bridge/entrance thing that leads to the second floor, it's almost detached from the campus!
(this is for animation btw)
Maybe this is just me making a mistake, but I'm fairly certain that when I went in today that the person before me got a completely different number.
It's possible it does associate with the number of applicants though.
Hmmm I was number 638 for the animation portfolio on Monday if it helps you eyeball how many people applied.
Pretty sure 600 people didn't show up on the first day before I arrived at 10:00am so I'm guessing it relates to the total number applied. I doubt that they marked 600 portfolios from 10:30 to 3:00 anyway.
If you've been to other tours you might want to skip out. For the animation tour, our guide brought us to take a look inside to studios which was pretty neat though!
Im so very excited now! I have my media arts and animation assessment tomorrw omg omg Im so exicted Im gonna play assassins creed rev! eeeeeee!
For illustration: Okay, now i'm worried, I read a few posts back that for the still life drawing, the second part is done from imagination? ._. but nowhere does it mention the words imagination...
"Now do a second drawing, on another sheet, of the still life but with some kind of change or transformation having taken place with the objects. The exercise is meant to test creativity"
when I did it, I thought it meant that we could creatively alter the composition of the still life/ transform the objects? @__@ maybe I should do another one just in case. ._. but it's strange how the animation people have specific wording for their port. reqs but ours are very open and ambiguous. Could it have been left open on purpose? ,_,
Well different people probably wrote them up, but most of the examples I've seen were changed from imagination. They are, after all, testing you on your creativity and that's more creative than moving them!
Good luck, are you sending it in on Friday too?
You can still test your creativity by moving the objects. You don't simply have to move them, interact with them. Andrew Sonea's portfolio from last year (last page of the accepted portfolios thread) shows a pretty good example of that.
Try to get your still life to tell a story too. Have them interacting with each other as well. What change has happened between the two still lifes? How? Communicate that in your second still life.
mm thanks for the replies, going for saturday, so I still have a bit of time to touch it up.
Telling a story? :0 Sounds like exactly what an illustrator should be doing. >:]
GUYS... for the animation portfolio .... in 'Personal Works' it says 'Photographs of these works are acceptable' <- but it says that after 'Do not include sculpture'
Do they mean photographs of all personal artwork is acceptable or do they just mean if you have a sculpture piece?
Take pictures of your sculpture and they'll count it as 1 portfolio piece, but don't bring the sculpture @_@
Just because everyone is asking, during our orientation someone asked how many portfolio's were submitted this year. He said, they got about 725. This number wasn't including our lot (which was about 50-100 people) and the two other days. So I'm estimating about 1000 people will be applying (give or take) this year.
Good luck to everyone. Definitely bring something to occupy your time from 12-3. Those hours were dreadful.
Whoops, kinda ditched this forum for a bit aha xD Glad to see everyone is making progress with their portfolios. I got accepted into fundies, so I'll be going to Sheridan for sure in September ^_^
I went to drop off mine today; such a long day -__-
But I heard from the presentation today that 770 portfolios are already submitted, and only 125 are being accepted o_o So I pretty much died a little inside. *sigh* I think I failed on my layout section, specifically the room drawing. The persons perspective piece is fine, I think, but the first view of the overall room..it said not to use a ruler so I didn't (thus making my perspective look horrible) but in the example of a successful portfolio that was shown, the students piece clearly showed that she used a ruler, at least for the construction lines So I'm a little pissed off. But I think I did pretty good with the character section and storyboard section, maybe even life drawing too...but I'm not too sure aha xD
I wish we could find out our scores sooner; I'm really not looking forward to waiting
Good luck to everyone!
Does anyone know for the drawing test if the photocopies have to be black and whites or in color?
@Nicnak Were you the girl in the funny hat xD? I wasn't sure! so many of us went today...we shouldve set up a meeting! lmao meanwhile while I was standing in the line some guy was looking at a lights poster and quickly grabbed it and ripped it off the bulletin board lmao
Aha, no xD Um, I had a brown leather jacket on, straight brown hair, and I was with my mom and dad. You can check my dA, I have a picture of myself as my dA ID ;P@Nicnak Were you the girl in the funny hat xD? I wasn't sure! so many of us went today...we shouldve set up a meeting! lmao meanwhile while I was standing in the line some guy was looking at a lights poster and quickly grabbed it and ripped it off the bulletin board lmao
I know! I totally forgot about going on here to see how everyone was doing. I would have loved to see all your portfolio's too :3
Lmao, really? There's some straaanngge people, but I'm so excited to meet everyone aha, finally I won't be the odd one out, and actually find people who have the same interests and weird artsyness as me aha xD
I saw that light poster too, before it got ripped off apparently. I checked out other portfolios (as an exchange sort of thing). I'm not too worried. The studio looked amazing though.
The site updated my portfolio as "complete", phew. I was so worried about it not getting there, but it's all okay now. Except my transcript apparently still outstanding. I mailed that weeks ago.
For those who took the tour, do the animation students get their own desk to work at? They do that at Capilano and I always thought that it was really neat because the students would tape inspirational images they printed out and decorated their areas and such. But Cap has much fewer students than Sheridan.
Basically I'm wondering if someone could describe the animation wing for me.
I can describe what I saw. First we went down this hallway literally decked out with display cases of animation students work. Great insight into the skill level and how quick people develop. There was about 2 different hallways with student works. Amazing to just look at and enjoy. Then we got into the "studio". THere was probably 50is-80 desks, all of them high tech (and I checked with one of the guides, there all PC)
Yes, students get their own desks to work with. I think, I might of misheard that first years have to share with one other person. but I'm not sure. When we went in and looked at the tables and stuff, there was quite alot of them. You get a computer, a tablet, a tablet with the screen built in and that thing for capturing pictures for traditional animation. It looked amazing really. high budget stuff. Funny enough, each year gets their area. 4th and 3rd were locked off to us. With lockers, desks to work on, little billboards to doodle on and the works. Prob where all animation students will be for most of their time. Then after that, basically just more hallways with more work.
@Lamp - I was accepted to fundies when my transcript was still listed as 'outstanding' even though I knew it had been received. I emailed asking about this, but they said it was pretty normal and it takes a while to process into the system after being received even if someone has looked over it. If you are really worried, they accept faxes!

I just have a quick question about the illustration portfolio requirements if anyone can help me Do they want your actual sketchbook to be handed in or can you just photocopy pages of your sketchbook and include it in your portfolio?
If you live within 80km, then include your entire sketchbook
photocopies of sketchbook are also fine. Even if within the 80km. I'm going in tomorrow to drop off my illustration. Then thats it for portfolio submissions.
Then Mass effect 3 until I get a letter of admission (hopefully)
Good luck! I'm dropping mine off on Saturday.
When you can, could you estimate how many people were there?
I'll definitely scope out the competition. I'll probably ask about the number of applicants as well. Lots of people like to do the "can I look at your portfolio" and psyche their selves out. I try to avoid it, unless they ask me directly.
Question for carrying sketchbook in. Do I just label it like my portfolio?
