We closed out the Comic Book project last week after two deadline extensions. It was obvious that many of you struggled with the challenges of working on a large-group project – but the reality is that working and depending on others can be difficult and challenging. There were scheduling issues because of absences and co-workers often over-rely on others to carry the weight of a project – these are all very real and difficult dilemmas when working in a group, on a team, or at a company. So the learning was real even if the products were not as high a quality as you all are capable of doing.
The reality is that designers, photographers and creatives work collaboratively – either with other artists or with groups of clients. If this project didn’t work for you, it’s important to try to understand why and how your approach needs to change when confronted with this type of challenge in the future. What will you do differently in the future to succeed?
This week we’re going to begin working on a project called Mini-Me/Mega-Me. We will be working with partners throughout this project and responsibilities will be evenly shared. Each partner will plan a photo shoot of themselves in an environment they wish to be placed into. The idea is to create two surreal composite images from a group of images. You will need to miniaturize yourself in the mini-me part of this assignment. In the second part, mega-me, you’ll become a giant in an unusual place. Turn yourself into Godzilla or King-Kong scale. It will be important to pay attention to light, shadows and image quality. (See the mini-me samples below.)
