One Club Deadline, Friday May 1, 2020

The One Club’s free global portfolio review

The positive response to The One Club Online Portfolio Review has been absolutely phenomenal, with nearly a thousand young creatives from around the world already registered to have their work critiqued. Couple this with several hundred creative professionals already volunteering to critique portfolios and offer advice, and the Online Portfolio Review is shaping up to be an incredible initiative in a time when the global pandemic has put so many young creatives’ aspirations on hold.

That said, there’s always room for more! If you’re a student or recent grad and haven’t yet uploaded your portfolio, or if you’re a creative professional looking to give back to the next generation of creatives throughout the month of May, you have until this Friday. May 1 to register.

The Online Portfolio Review is free of charge for all participants.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: MAY 1

FOR REVIEWERS & PROFESSIONALS

Break up the monotony of quarantine by paying it forward professionally! You’ll only be assigned as many portfolios as you’d like to take on, and you’ll have a few weeks to write a review of each person’s work. You’ll even have an opportunity to continue the conversation if you’d like to guide a young creative post-pandemic.

SIGN UP TO REVIEW PORTFOLIOS

FOR STUDENTS & RECENT GRADS

You’ve worked hard to get this far — don’t let a little thing like a worldwide lockdown get in the way of gaining feedback from the very creative professionals you hope to impress when things get better. Once you’ve uploaded your portfolio, it will be assigned to multiple creative professionals, in order to give you a broad scope of opinions of your work.

QC Student Takes Top Honors at Rarebit Animation Festival

Congratulations to Jadxia Carbajal, Christian Dantzler and Jessica Hong for having work selected to screen in the 2018 Rarebit Animation Festival at Queensborough Community College.  Additionally, the jury awarded Jadxia Carbajal’s film Battery, about her personal experience with Type I Diabetes, the top honor and she took home the 2018 Rarebit Award.

Christian Dantzler’s film, Ruptured, was about learning to love while simultaneously navigating childhood society was created using Flash and Photoshop, as well as some traditional pencil on paper techniques.  Both Christian and Jadxia’s films were two-semester projects in Professor Grella’s ARTS 370 Animated Documentary course.

Jessica Hong’s film Ghost Ice Cream is a humorous yarn about a ghost that is in love with ice cream.  Hong, an upcoming senior, created her film in Professor Cowan’s Intro to Animation course.  She is currently working on a film about irrational fears, to be finished in December.

This was the second year for the Rarebit Animation Festival which takes its name from Dream of the Rarebit Fiend, the innovative and often surreal comic strip by one-time Sheepshead Bay resident Winsor McCay (c.1867-1934). Perhaps best known for his popular strip Little Nemo in Slumberland, McCay was a pioneer in the art of animation–his  cartoon Gertie the Dinosaur (1914) was one of the very first animated films ever created.
