Okay, It is time to make a review of Nic Clear's lecture about the animation and drawing. To be fair I didn't know who is this guy as well but this thing does not matter. His main idea and purpose is “using film and animation in the development and representation of architectural ideas and architectural practices”.He was a teacher more than twenty years. Nic seemed that he really loved what he was teaching his students and really proud of their work. I really enjoyed Nic's lecture for several reasons. The first one is that he was showing us a lot of his student's work. Another reason is that the topic and the whole idea of the lecture was really good and mainly the idea of digital space. He got me thinking about the technologies and how easy is for us to do things. For example things that we are doing for minutes on our laptops and pc's were taking years in the past. He showed a clip from a film called Panic Room and how the camera is going from actual space to a virtual one and how it has been manipulated.
Nic's way of being an architect was not traditional. He was doing mostly films and that's why he was not accepted as an architect, but in my opinion making all this with the buildings in a film is even harder.He was trying to explain that drawings are a good way of communicating ideas and spaces, but it can be more effective if it's used animation techniques. He showed some clips made by his students and they were pretty good especially when you know that it has been made by a student. One of his students clip was "Robots of Brixton" and it showed futuristic Brixton.
I really liked this lecture because of the way it was done.
