Educators: Support Material

Whether you are an educator or a careers adviser, this section is aiming to give you an understanding of some of the key issues that surround adequately training people to work in the industry. We have also included here a section of downloadable support material that we hope to continuously expand.

This is the start of an initiative that we hope will flourish and expand over time. Here we will make available support materials for as many of the disciplines as we can, and we'll update them as often as we can. (Bear in mind that we also have to work on our commercial projects, so free time is a bit of a luxury!)

The idea behind these is that they can be tackled by people at any stage of ability; what is important is the quality of the finished article, within the constraints of the brief.

Blitz Academy Posters

We're often asked if we have any artwork that we can make available for people to download, whether that's to show off the sort of quality levels we're interested in or just to promote the studio. Here are some examples that we have created especially for the purpose, showcasing some models and environmental concept art from our recent work. Feel free to download and print them out for your school, office or studio!

Professional 3D art asset briefs

The purpose of these briefs is to set a task that closely replicates the needs and working constraints for art asset production in the game industry. This is a chance for you to create something relevant whilst demonstrating your skills and abilities.

Currently we have four briefs available: Crab, Rooftop, Trash and Treasure Chest. Within each you will find a document which gives an overview of the task; a list of the skills needed to complete the brief and which will be developed by completing the brief; and the technical requirements for that brief (the spec that the person making the model must adhere to). Finally, there is reference material, either photographic or painted.

Professional audio briefs

Currently we have two briefs available: on is a dark electronic orchestral music brief and the other a Kung Fu game music brief. Within each you will find a document which gives an overview of the task; a list of the skills needed to complete the brief and which will be developed by completing the brief; and the technical requirements for that brief (the spec that the person making the model must adhere to).

Coming at some point...

As we get the chance, we will be adding game design, programming and animation briefs and hopefully rigged models as well. Please feel free to give us guidance by getting in touch with us at academy@BlitzGamesStudios.com.
