So a while ago, I applied to a one-year part-time animation certificate in a local College here in Dublin. I figured it would be great to attend a real class and that I'd learn a lot about composition and story-telling.
A few days ago, I found out they're giving me an interview on the 1st of August. It all seems very casual and their email says this in relation to what I need to bring with me:
"Optional: art portfolio, sketches (3 pieces max), animation video. If available these documents can be brought in on the day and scanned and emailed). Please note a portfolio is not a mandatory requirement for this course."
I have never made a portfolio before and don't have very long to put one together. Should I just bring some sketchbooks? Or should I make a very small portfolio that tracks my progress in drawing over the last year? Or just try to make a proper portfolio from what I have?
At first I thought the progress idea was good because they might see how motivated I am, having taught myself... But now I'm not so sure. Maybe I shouldn't include any bad art, even if it's purpose is to showcase other art and improvement...?
Any help or suggestions much apprecaited!! You can see most of my drawings on Instagram to get an idea of what I have at my disposal...
