GAMES, animation and media students from the Rotherham College of Arts and Technology took part in a Create a Creature competition and came away as winners - for the second year running.

The contest at Huddersfield University’s Barnsley campus featured a day of intense work with the students working in teams of two to come up with the design for a creature. They then put together a digital version of their design and recorded motion capture footage to allow the creature to be animated.

Makosethu Sibanda, Chris North, Kevin Miree and Aaron Kirkby then took on Doncaster and Barnsley colleges in the final, animating their design, and recording green screen footage which was then combined into a final video. The students were praised for the high technical quality of their efforts.
