YOUR FUTURE IN

VISUAL ARTS

SO WHAT WOULD I DO ALL DAY? That depends where your creativity takes you! Your days as an ARTIST will ideally be spent developing creative ideas through a variety of mediums. This could involve discussing a commission piece with a client, researching, conceptualising and designing a project, deciding on the methods and materials you want to use and creating the artwork. You could also be busy marketing and selling your artwork, teaching or running your own gallery. If creating art in the form of drawings or paintings is your thing then consider a future as an ILLUSTRATOR. You would use your talents and tools to produce two-dimensional images for the web, books, magazines, advertising, cards or posters. A day could include discussing project requirements with a client, researching for reference material, creating sketches and producing final artwork. A PHOTOGRAPHER always has their camera close, ready to capture people, places, objects and events. As a professional photographer your day would involve marketing your business, understanding client objectives and discussing ideas, deciding on the method and equipment to use, taking photographs and uploading digital images onto a computer for retouching and image manipulation.

6

As a SCREEN DIRECTOR you are responsible for writing or interpreting a script or story and then bringing it alive. Often you will work with a team to storyboard a concept. Your day could include choosing cast and crew in collaboration with a producer, deciding on settings for a film and how scenes will be shot, directing actors’ performances, pre-production, directing the shoot, post-production with an editor, supervising soundtracks, sound effects and music. The skills of a good EDITOR merging images, sound, graphics and text together to tell a narrative are highly valued by directors and producers. Your day will be spent viewing the film with directors, writers, producers and clients, deciding on and marking up shots to be cut or kept, linking shots into a rough version of the work, editing it to exact final length, matching pictures with sound and adding graphics and titles. An ANIMATOR creates the characters and brings them alive through motion for film, television or the internet in 2-D or 3-D. This involves meeting with directors and clients, agreeing on a workplan, creating 3-D mesh wireframes to produce backdrops for scenes, building models and puppets, hand-drawing characters, placing the image into an animation computer program and introducing special effects such as colour, fading and reflection.

Designing and producing websites is the role of a WEB DESIGNER. You day could include; discussing client requirements, liasing with writers and developers, working out structure and a technical plan and integrating technical, visual and content aspects to produce a website that provides a great visitor experience.

fashion design

A GRAPHIC DESIGNER creates designs for logos, websites, publications, catalogues, magazines, packaging, even clothing and promotional products. Your day may involve discussing a design project with a client, developing ideas through research and brainstorming with colleagues, preparing sketches and layouts, suggesting the most effective production methods, presenting design ideas to business clients, receiving their feedback and if necessary, altering the designs accordingly.

interior design

As a PRODUCER you choose or come up with an idea for a film or television programme, put a team together to create it, and then supervise the project from start to finish. This entails pursuing assignments for a production company to work on, arranging finance, liaising with clients, hiring a director, choosing key creative staff and actors with the director, solving any production issues and planning marketing and distribution of the screen work.

floristry

As a CAMERA OPERATOR you’re the one behind the lens shooting events or scenes for the screen. In the course of a day you may be studying a script or storyboard and interpreting how the scenes should look, selecting the right camera, lighting and equipment for the job, working with and following the director’s instruction or advising on the best way to shoot a scene and operating the camera.

landscape design

If you have a way with words then use them to good effect in a career as a SCREENWRITER. A screenwriter spends their days writing stories, plays, scripts and poems for production. This usually involves researching, writing and revising. You will work along side a producer or business client to bring life to their vision.

YOUR FUTURE IN

COMMERCIAL MUSIC

SO WHAT WOULD I DO ALL DAY? That will depend on whether you choose to write, make, teach, critique or produce music. If expressing your ideas and feelings through music seems the most natural thing in the world, then so will a future as a COMPOSER. You will spend your days song writing, creating new music or rewriting existing music for bands, orchestras, singers, plays or films using a combination of technologies, instruments, voices and sounds to get the result you want. As a MUSIC PRODUCER you’re the one who facilitates recording music for the market by organising, directing and overseeing the entire recording process, including timeframe and budget. This could include booking the studio, negotiating with managers of bands and record labels, hiring musicians, instructing audio engineers, supervising recording, mixing and mastering, and keeping the record labels up to date with progress. AUDIO ENGINEERS examine the nature of sound and incorporate their knowledge of recording and sound in response to client briefs. In your role as audio engineer you will apply the knowledge gained whilst studying, to the recording of singers, bands, and instrumentalists and engineering multimedia projects such as; voice-overs, music and sound for moving image, music videos, installations, television, radio and internet based advertising.

24

You’ve probably read reviews in the paper or on the web, heard them on radio or television, but have you considered becoming a REVIEWER or CRITIC? In this role it’s you who writes about and gives an opinion of artistic works or performances such as books, movies, music, stage or television productions. This involves researching the background of the work, reading, listening or watching the piece, developing an objective and subjective opinion, writing and presenting the review, and maybe participating in discussions on radio, television and/or the internet. MUSIC TEACHERS pass their skills, knowledge and love of music onto others through teaching individuals or small groups of children or adults. Your day could include planning lessons according to your students’ ability, preparing students for exams or assessments, assessing and marking their work, organising student performances, updating on education curriculum changes, meeting with parents, wha¯nau/family or caregivers to discuss your students’ progress, and keeping a record of accounts. Making a future out of making music, can you imagine anything better than that? As a professional MUSICIAN your days could involve studying and interpreting music, rehearsing and performing for an audience, accompanying singers and other soloists, recording your music, promoting yourself or your band, and maybe composing, conducting and teaching music.

YOUR FUTURE IN

FASHION DESIGN

SO WHAT WOULD I DO ALL DAY? That will depend on the area of fashion you choose to follow… or aim to lead! If you’re already a season ahead in your fashion thinking turn your ideas into reality as a FASHION DESIGNER. Your days could be spent creating ideas, designs and sketches for original garments and other fashion accessories, adapting or creating patterns, estimating costs, selecting and buying fabrics and planning clothing production. You could also market your garments and run your own business, as a designer or commercial operator. As a RETAILER you could be working in a department store, speciality store, national chain or outlet, or invovled in buying or sourcing off shore. Your day could include distribution, merchandising, and sale of garments whether that be in person or via online shopping.

A PATTERN DESIGNER converts a garment into a pattern of separate parts that can be laid out on lengths of fabric. Your day may involve meeting with the designer, determining the best lay up of pattern pieces to minimise waste and using PAD (computer Pattern Aided Design) technologies to outline the parts of the garment and indicate positions for pleats, button holes and other design features. Consider a future as a PRODUCTION DESIGN MANAGER. In this role you will be sourcing, costing, importing and exporting fabrics and accessories for mass production and or fashion designers. Your day could also involve specification writing for manufacturing. As a BUSINESS OPERATOR/OWNER you could sell your garments in your own retail store. Each day as an owner/operator or as a designer of wholesale of product ranges you could be analysing the market to understand fashion trends, designing, producing, pricing and marketing your clothing, monitoring cash flow and debts and hiring and training staff.
