    I applied for the accommodation yesterday. Couldn't decide which one to go for :P
    Finally decided to put woodlands as my first choice. Hope I'm not too late
    Are you on the same course? (BA in Computer Animation and Visual Effects)

    Haha it was a tough one, considering I didn't see any of the accommodation at my interview day! lol But it was the en-suite that made me choose there lol.
    I think you'll be alright as long as Teesside was your Firm, they should give you your first choice from what I gather. :0)
    And yeah, that's the course I'm on, I'm Melanie btw. :0)

    I really want to do computer animation at uni, but I'm not sure what to put in portfolio. Any pointers? I know they want a lot of still life work and strong art skills but they mentioned to show evidence of problem solving... what would that be?

    I'm not sure what they expect you to show for problem solving. I submitted all my work (sketches,paintings in PS,2D and 3D animations) I guess that was sufficient but I have completed a one year diploma course in Animation so I'm not sure if that makes a difference
    Give it a try

    Yeah I'm not sure what they mean by that either, I've also just completed my one year at uni doing Art and Design, so I took my best pieces of work from each area, life drawings, perspective drawings, graphics, even a sample of textile work I'd done. Although they expect that you've not had any experience with any animation programs, I think they like to see you have some knowledge about what software is used; I made some simple models in 3ds Max, using tutorials on Youtube and put those in my portfolio, they weren't great cause I never used the program before but it was the main thing my interviewer(s) talked with me about...I thought my interview went rubbish, I was so nervous, my voice started to go! lol
