Students' creative technologies showcased
The event, which took place on Monday 19 May at the University's Headingley Campus, gave the public and industry experts the opportunity to view the students' innovative work.
The annual showcase marks the end of the academic year bringing together the works of BSc (Hons) Games Design, BSc (Hons) Creative Media Technology, BSc (Hons) Computer Animation and Visual Effects, BSc (Hons) Broadcast Media Technologies and BSc (Hons) Photographic Journalism undergraduates.
Senior Lecturer, Bal Singh, commented: "Our students have raised the bar yet again by producing extremely high quality output. They have worked exceptionally hard and have produced industry standard content utilising the skills they have gained during their course. This year's projects included games running on iOS, Android, PC and MAC platforms, graphics and web applications, animated short films and video/photographic documentaries.
The prize for 'Best Project', which was sponsored by 'The Book Recruitment', and consisted of £100 of Apple vouchers, was awarded to BSc (Hons) Games Design students Phil Allcock and Lawrence Youngs for their mobile game, 'The Adventures of Steven Seagull' (Pictured below.)
Bal added: "Phil and Lawrence were awarded the prize for artistic quality of their mobile game, the professionalism they demonstrated and documented throughout the development cycle and their great team work."
The game will also be entered into the Game Republic competition taking place on Tuesday 3rd June at theUniversity of Huddersfield.
