I had the privilege of teaching Concept of Digital Imaging at NTU School of Arts & Design recently. Unknown to many, I majored in Time-Based Media during my undergraduate days and worked in the Broadcast Design and VFX industry after graduation. Though I have avoided digital work for the past 10 years, I have stayed relevant by producing my own promotional videos and materials.
It may come as a surprise to many who knew me for my traditional arts. Conversely, those who knew me for my digital work were equally surprised when I pivoted to traditional medium. I don't dislike digital work. Rather, I suffer repetitive stress injuries when I spent too much time on computer.
Anyhow, I am glad to have taught at ADM.
These were the finest students I have interacted with in Singapore and I am super proud of their achievements. The module Concept of Digital Imaging was rather ambitious. We started in still-based photography, moved into digital painting and pick up pace in Video and Animated Sequences. Apart from picking up software skills in Photoshop, Illustrator, Premier and After Effects, students needed to understand the working mechanics of Camera and lens. All of these were accomplished just within 13 weeks.
Here is a small compilation of some of their works. Special thanks all my Students from G4,G5 and G6 ( Semester 2, 2017)
