On friday stage 1 GDC students had a chance to show off their talents at an event in Chelsea’s Casket studios which was also attended by the Dean and all the technicians who have been helping with this years projects so far. Here is a sample from the Dingbats brief, where students are asked to recreate a typeface in wood, then lose it in an interesting way. (Jake Hollands below)
Thursday at The Peckham Multiplex Cinema GDC saw students from stage 2 screening their movies made for the Consume Peckham project working with businesses from Peckham to make film biographies. The Cinema was packed out and the films were well received. At the after party the students recent work with motion graphics designer and artist Max Hatler was shown.
Also on thursday, Stage 3 students gathered for a final celebration before setting off to write their dissertations over the winter break.
Consume Peckham proudly presents its third edition, co-ordinated by Kieron Dennis. This year sixteen short films have been made by Stage 2 Graphic Design Communication students from Chelsea. Subjects include an evangelical church, a dog grooming salon, and a Christmas decoration company.
Together they reflect the diversity of commercial activity in Peckham. The documentaries also reveal the resilience of a community tested by recent riots and budget cuts and shows how Peckham supports, inspires and provides chances for its young residents. Consume Peckham presents a truly authentic portrait of the varied and occasionally bizarre cultural mix that is to be found in South London’s most infamous postcode.
