Try and bring no assumptions to forum posts. There is no right way to think, just opinions.
In a business meeting you may expect some agreement in artistic value and design to be preordained because of your similar societies and educations but here we are from all over the world. Start with a smile and be patient, you never know where it might lead.
Paul you should have seen my attempts with a tripod on those moving shots, the part the camera sits on can move a full 360 degrees so produced some interesting movements. All the stills were on a tripod which worked out well.
That intro only took me about 2 minutes but I am glad it looks strong/powerful/cool.
Will start working on the story and plan out the shots before I start shooting any more footage.
Thank you Terry and Kris, I will make sure to get some much clearer and slower footage of my pots into the next video.
Babs I enjoy spending the evening being more creative and the days more production orientated. It is a great place to relax in the evenings and has good light throughout the day. I will think off you years down the line when I am sleep deprived and remember to turn the big light on hey at least the kiln was fired right
Have you done any work with clay before or just researched it on the internet?
It sounds to me like you have not, so I would advise trying to find a shorter course just to get a taste and see if it is what you think it is.
The best thing I ever did with my life was an "art foundation year" I am not actually sure on the qualification but the general idea was you did a week of 10 different subjects and then specialized in one for the year. I went to do graphic design but ended up loving ceramics too much and spent the year studying it.
I think something like this would be really good for you to decide what direction to go. The good thing about college is they remove most of the hard and slightly tedious work and leave you the most enjoyable sides of ceramics. I didn't realise how easy they made my life until 3 years later when I rented a studio and bought myself a kiln to find out that everything was down to me I miss the days of handing over a piece to be fired and it coming back beautiful without any effort on my part.#
We have something in the UK called http://www.adoptapotter.org.uk/ that seems to be the only thing around when I looked into apprenticeships. Might just be worth asking if they know of anything similar in Germany.
