Senior Thesis

November 28th, 2007 Posted in School

One of the things we have to do as Graduate art students is have a thesis project that we complete before we are allowed to graduate.  Usually you come up with your thesis idea after your first year of grad school and you then present it to your department lead and the Dean of your department – in my case Computer Animation – and once they approve it you continue with it and then finish it as your graduation project.

Well, I must just be lucky or something because a few weeks ago after a long night, little sleep and some Taco Bell I came up with my idea.  I wont go into any details here because I don’t really want it to be snatched up by someone else who may bebop through here but I think it’s good and so does the dean and my department lead.  So, now I am about a year ahead of schedule for my project.

The dean’s words to me on it were “Well, let me put it this way: If you DON’T do this for your thesis project I will hold you here and not let you graduate until you DO make it.”  I guess that is the stamp of approval I was needing.

So, I’ve started with some preliminary sketches, I have a couple of 3D models I am working on that will be part of the project and I’ve got the documentation started for it.  

My big hope is that it will be a good enough project that it will not only get me a job, but maybe turn into an actual game under my direction.  I don’t want to have this idea and then have to turn it over to someone else to make into reality because lets face it, it’s my idea.  my preccccccious  :)

 If it does become real though I will be a very happy camper.  It’s a fun idea that spoofs quite a few things but isn’t ‘just’ a spoof, it has it’s own life and rythm that I think would make it very popular.

 Guess I will just have to wait and see.
