On Thursday 9th June we hosted the Graphic Oscars for Stage 1 Graphic Design at the School of Communication Design, Falmouth.
The ‘Red Carpet’ event brought together collaborative film groups who were tasked with delivering a 60 second short film. The brief came from the very first task students were asked to consider at the start of their academic year: to fill in a ‘DEAR ME’ letter with a ten thing list of to-do items on it for the year ahead. We shortlisted the whole years list and these became the working titles for the films:
- Say “Yes” more
- Learn to dance
- ALWAYS have milk
- Eat like an adult
- Fill my boots
- Try to like wine
- Buy a new Apple something
- Make friends with someone who owns a yacht
- Host a dinner party
- Be more musical
Red carpet guests enjoyed, cold beers and popcorn. All the films were great but there are always winners (and runners up)
