Unit 7: Narrative - Time Management (Part 1)

*Creaks to life, brushes dust from shoulders and climbs off of the shelf*

Hey Everybody!

First blog post in a while was starting to think I forgot how to do this but I guess its like riding a bike you never really forget and one day for no reason you feel like a nice ride. Summer was... interesting wouldn't call it the best but I guess things are never perfect. Anyway I wont waffle lets get down to the important issue here.

I will be darting between this blog and a group blog with my partners in crime Anita and Lydia over at "Smokestack Studios". I will provide the link below here so those of you that are interested in hearing of our exploits over this next Unit please follow our progress.

For those of you that do not know or are a little confused by now this unit (our Narrative unit) is a group project in which we are to form a mini Studio with some of our class mates. The biggest issue we have had so far was deciding on the Studio name (which ended up Smokestack Studios) but I'm sure were not the only ones.
Anyway lets get to it!
The board looks rather intimidating I know but this load is to be shared by 3 and the project is actually 12 weeks long I just want to be on top of the game as I said to my studio colleagues this is just a rough guideline so we don't slip too far, too fast.

Those of you may have also noticed that this time management post is Part 1 and it is because the Unit length has expanded past last years set menu 5 week per deadline. We now have 12+ weeks to complete 3 fairly large tasks and all of the underline work in between (storyboards, scripts, etc).

One of my roles in our studio is of course Time Management (I knew id get that one lol) mainly because of my complete fussiness around managing time. Id like to think of myself as the guy who sets the main goal of the week so we continue to develop at an acceptable rate with numerous avenues of discovery for every possible idea.

Anyway my attention has been divided but I'll be here for the odd quirky little update.

Take it easy people,
