CTE Advanced Studies
This advanced studio course allows the student to delve deeper into one aspect from their previous digital arts courses. Students explore a topic independently, culminating in a finished product related to their studio area or as part of a class-wide production team, depending on the current group size. Students continue developing their digital portfolio and have an opportunity to receive feedback from industry professionals while attending the East Coast Game Conference.
Project Presentation & Portfolio Defense (May 15, 2018 - 6pm)
Product Presentation & Portfolio Defense requires students to showcase their completed product and portfolio in a professional manner during an event open to the DSA community. Students are expected to speak about the development process of their product from conception to completion and allow anyone interested to test the finished product. This event will take place outside of normal school hours near the end of the year. During this presentation, students will be expected to show a game trailer or short documentary video on their year in Advanced Studies.
