Broadcasted Television Work
While studying a thick sandwich degree in Multimedia Technology and Design I spent 15 months at my placement company “Wurmsers Television Graphics“. Due to the family like environment in the company my position as a 2D/3D designer also included IT support, network administration and graphics operating to name just a few.
Wurmsers has produced television graphics for the likes of the BBC for over sixty five years and has very strong links and relationships with broadcasting companies such as SKY, ITV, Five, Setanta and many more.
There was a huge amount of responsibility involved in my work, which was coupled with the high pressures of deadlines and strict budgets that were enforced at all stages of a project by clients and management.

Although not the final render, it was very close to how the final render looked. The main difference is the ending really. This was one of a number of pieces I was required to produce in the same weekend, yet in reality it was actually about a months worth of work.
