Rocketseed Salesforce - our students' latest commercial project

One of the most effective ways that we can ensure that our animation and visual effects students at Bucks find work when they graduate is to get out there and find work on their behalf. Last year we launched Nano Films, a small animation business making short films for commercial clients. The budgets are not large but then neither are the films, and there is nothing like client-facing projects to give our students the vital experience they need to build a successful career.

The video shown above was made for Rocketseed, an email company that specialises in clickable banners that supply sales data to businesses, helping get better and smarter at targeting new customers. Our students didn't shoot the live action but we did everything else: the motion graphics, the sound mix and the final edit. The job was designed and directed by Bucks graduate Monika Dzikowicz, the motion graphics was done by first year undergraduate Anton Alfimenko, and the music was by Bucks graduate Kris Allen.

Many congratulations to the three of them for doing an excellent job. We hope to bring in more jobs like this so that more and more of our students can start to polish their skills on live briefs, bringing in excellent experience and some extra income as well.

(Editor's Note: For more impressive work done by our students and recent graduates here at Bucks, check out Anton Alfimenko's recreation of Old Trafford, Ben Gray's Moonbeam, and the architectural visualisations of Sabah Masood. Also take a look at the work of Andy Thomas here, see our latest commercial project for Rocketseed, our short film done for a global aid agency, and take a look at the excellent work of designer Monika Dzikowicz, architectural visualisation specialist Krsytof Michalski, Alex Whitfield and the 3D artwork of Mike Swan.)
