Going Global Ceremony NOVEMBER 2017

On the 9th November, a ceremony was held at the University of East London to celebrate the achievements of those who had been granted funding for their global trips during the summer. After I lead a group out to Croatia for Animafest, it was expected of us to perform a presentation to an audience including programme leaders and the vice-chancellor. The presentation summed up what we did for the week there and what we learned while we were there, which we have since gained great praise for.

I directed the group to each do an illustration of a place/event that interested them while we were in Croatia, which I then turned into one map-like illustration. I then directed them to animate their part of the map so that it would repeat as a loop. For the presentation, each person that spoke had their own illustration moving as a backdrop for their speech. This made the presentation more engaging for those listening, as well as giving a visual insight to our experience there too.
