The Third and The Seventh

Alex Roman is a digital artist he created THIS stunning video single-handedly from plans and architectural drawings 10 years ago. He made all the models and textures, created the virtual camera movements and he even wrote the music.
In a world where we need to question sources and investigate “What is real?” Alex used only three tiny bits of actual footage – everything else is computer generated. When you watch the video it seems hard to believe because it’s so realistic.

See if you can spot the three “real things”.

Noughts + Crosses Project

Hello everyone, we will be putting a specific project together each week for you that you can do in addition to the work set by your teachers. These projects will focus on different themes each week and will use resources that are readily available for free on the internet, that don’t require any subscription services. This first one, is based on the TV series of Noughts + Crosses and focuses on the parallels that can be made between the dystopian fictional world that is created in the series and the real world we all live in. Hope you enjoy it and find it interesting. We’d love to hear back from you about what you thought.
