Pushing Boundaries: Eli Beutler's SIP Expedition into Game Artistry

At the University of Advanced Technology (UAT), Eli Beutler, a dedicated student in Game Art and Animation, embarked on a transformative journey through the Student Innovation Project (SIP). His project, "Resolution Deterioration," introduces a captivating game feature where resolution decreases as health diminishes. 

Reflecting on his SIP experience, Eli shares, "I'm very happy with where it's at, but I know that there is still more I want to add to it." Driven by a desire for continuous improvement, Eli envisions expanding his project to make it playable on platforms like Steam, catering to a wider audience. 

While Eli's background lies in game art and animation, the SIP provided an opportunity to delve into programming—a domain he had always found intriguing. "For me, it's just always very interesting because I'm a game art animation student. If I'd got to do a lot more programming, which I've always taken programming classes while I've been here just for the fun of it," Eli explains. 

Despite the initial daunting nature of the SIP project, Eli found inspiration in the creative freedom it offered. "This project can do so much for you. It can mean so much for you," he asserts. Recognizing the potential for professional growth, Eli highlights the significance of the CEO event, where students present their ideas to industry professionals, propelling them towards future success.
