Plymouth College of Art courses Film, Media, Photography, Animation and Games presents graduate student showcase ADAPT 2021 The showcase is made up of a number of different programs and all are open to the public.
ADAPT 2021 is the graduate showcase for BA (Hons) Film, BA (Hons) Digital Media Production, BA (Hons) Animation, BA (Hons) Game Arts and BA (Hons) Photography degree students at Plymouth College of Art. Designed, planned and curated by the students themselves, the work in this show is the culmination of three years of degree level study. The diverse ADAPT programme includes scripted drama, cinematic documentary, experimental film, fashion film, commercial media, photography, games and animation.
The title ‘ADAPT’ has been chosen because it highlights what has become one of the most valuable skills that our students have developed over the past three years. To adapt is to be positive, filled with possibilities and creativity. It suggests defiance in the face of adversity and confidence in being able to deal with what the future holds. Through, what might euphemistically be called, “interesting times”, the students have continued to work, experiment and develop in their medium and have produced incredible work that reflects and responds to the world around us.
