Work Experience Project Review

Despite not having the best of luck I really enjoyed my placement at Wild Creations and will hopefully be able to go back in the foreseeable future. I learnt many things while on placement such as when a heat gun drops dont try to grab it or you’ll regret it and you’re buggered due to…

Work Experience Feedback

In comparison to the other fellow student that were in my group I dont know what the average feedback was but despite the unforeseen and rather annoying circumstances the feedback was overall satisfactory mark wise which is a 2:2 mark for context and ideas and a 2:1 for ideas which I was surprised about considering…

The Candelebras

Along with Sam I was assigned to quality control over the metal candelabra and the fake wax candles that would be placed on top of the candelabra commissioned to appear in the background of an events party. In particular with this task I saw a much moreds on process as the structure was made by freelance welders in particular Gary who has…

Work Experience presentation time

Now that I have presented my presentation of the past four weeks of work experience I am relieved to final be able to say what I want to say about the experience. Granted it hasn’t always been easy but what is. Being on a formative level I hope to be able to build more contacts and placements to add…

Prezi presentation style

With my presentation coming together with the 11th as the day of reckoning I have decided to take a risk and use a new form of presenting my experience from my placement  called prezi. Analyzing the presentation powerpoint I hope I will be able to do myself justice using this. Given my confidence issues due…

Work experience evaluation

Overall despite a few problems along the way, which in my opinion has made the experience more real in the sense of the working world, and more real of what you have to do to be successful and be the best at what you do my placement was quite a complex one. I found the…

My reasons for choosing this type of company was to gain a physical experience of what it is like working in this market.On Maker I enjoy the making the final…

Velociraptor pack Jurrasic World how they were made

At the time of the Mosasaurus Commission the raptor pack Charlie Delta Echo Blue were also made by permanent Wil Sculptor Samantha Williams. Unlike the other commission all four of the raptors didn’t have a metal chassis and were sculpted as accurately as possible to the digital effects used in Jurassic World. To my understanding…

The Rugby Ball how it was made

Another perhaps more familiar project seen in recent weeks in Cardiff imbedded on the side of Cardiff Castle. Contracted by the the local Cardiff Council Wild Creations was tasked with making the ball and creating the effect of the wall being damaged by the presence of the ball as you can see.   Much like…

The Mosasaurus how it was made

Fans of the latest blockbuster installment of the Jurassic Park series will remember this familiar individual from the Jurassic World movie. The Mosasaurus Wild Creations was set the task of bringing this prehistoric beast to life for the premiere of the film and was situated on the banks of London for a day before being…

Unfortunately I am unable to help martin out much and getting involved with helping other students with their work hasn’t gone according to plan…

Working on the raptor

Due to a limited to no amount of work coming in it was a stretch to get involved without taking over what a member of the team is payesd to do. Buddied up with Sam I was helping clean and quality control a velociraptor cast that the end goal was for it to be hanged on…
