A merit means i exceeded in that area and showed higher standards than required to pass that part of the course. :) I'm quite proud.
What was needed: 3-4 scenes (original or based on a tv show/movie), polymorphic tweens, basic aniamtion techniques, some sound, storyboard. And a few other things I think. Can't remember what.
What I did: 40+ scenes, lots of animation (pretty smooth), basic (i think) techniques that have really nice looking effects, bg music (the SSJ transformation music as well as some jap dbz music), sound effects (lightning, waves, earthquakes), 10+ pages of storyboards.
It impressed my lecturer so much (he does TV btw, works on stuff for the BBC, Channel 4, Adverts) he has printed off my scenes to put up o the wall of the room. I'm proud. :D
