ANIMATION PROJECT -- Group Activity -- Rotoscoping Animation Technique

Posted on May 27, 2014 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Jul 24, 2014

What is Rotoscoping?  Learn how animation is created in the video "Lemonade."  Use this in your class as group assignments.  Have your students address topics related to their own lives, experiences, or current events.  Maybe have them act out historic events or literary dramas, or scenes from literature they are currently reading and studying in class.  This will cover all or most of your Common Core, STEM, PARCC, and other Evaluation requirements.  Students will love it.  Administrators will rave about them and you!  It's a WIN WIN project idea for today's classrooms!

Posted on May 25, 2014 by Kevin McMahon Last Activity on May 25, 2014

10 different Dojo Joe heads (with a range of emotions, side looks, and blinks) for teaching spritesheet-stlye animation. Note: the heads are exactly 100 pixels apart, so in Edge Animate just: 1) Clip to the area of one head. 2) Animate the "background image" property (make sure to keyframe without the transition/tween option turned on). 3) Associate a trigger button - and create the full range of emotive responses - angry, bored, happy, you name it.   Check out examples at:  http://designdojoquiz.businesscatalyst.com/index.html

Introducing Art-Heroes.org "Where Creatives Meet Causes"

Posted on May 21, 2014 by Kevin McMahon Last Activity on Jun 4, 2014

I wanted to introducing you to new educational program: art-heroes.org  In short, Art Heroes can connect your digital media students (who need to develop their portfolios for college applications and jobs) with local and global non-profit agencies (who need posters, websites, videos, etc. but cannot afford such creative services).  While your student designers, filmmakers, and web developers are welcome to join independently as "Art Hero Students", our greater hopes is that you will join as a member of the "Art Heroes Faculty" - and take advantage of Art Heroes as a way to provide your students with: 1) Real-world clients and experience. 2) Projects to enhance portfolios. 3) An opportunity to better the world with their artistic talents.

12 Principles of Animation, with a cube...

Posted on Apr 30, 2014 by Ian Sayers Last Activity on Jun 3, 2014

The 12 basic principles of animation were developed by the ‘old men’ of Walt Disney Studios, amongst them Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, during the 1930s. Of course they weren’t old men at the time, but young men who were at the forefront of exciting discoveries that were contributing to the development of a new art form. These principles came as a result of reflection about their practice and through Disney’s desire to use animation to express character and personality. This is a great way to showcase Animation and explain the basic types of animation effects http://the12principles.tumblr.com/ http://www.centolodigiani.com/117722/3078861/work/the-illusion-of-life

Spoken Word : A COMPLETE HOW-TO GUIDE & LESSONS FOR CREATING SPOKEN WORD MULTIMEDIA

Posted on Apr 29, 2014 by katherine Yamashita Last Activity on Jul 8, 2014

This unit guides students through all the steps needed to create a multi-media spoken word piece. It is designed for use in the Digital Media, Media Arts, English Media or Communications Technology classroom. It can also be used in any media literacy unit or unit on social justice.  This is the teacher information page for this unit. Access to the Internet and student access to millions of pieces of content means students are more than ever tempted to break copyright. I structured this unit to encourage students to create all of their own content, however I do allow the use of public domain and creative commons content. There is a great series of resources for teachers about teaching with digital media, copyright, social issues and youth advocacy in the Adobe Youth Voices page: Adobe Youth Voices Essentials. Another site with excellent resources related to this unit can be found on the Takin... Read More

Workspace Profile Management

Posted on Apr 24, 2014 by Adam Dinnes Last Activity on Apr 24, 2014

Adobe programs each contain a multitude of tools designed for different digital editing and design tasks.  So many tools in fact, that the majority of them are hidden in the default interface.  To handle the variety of tools and workflows, Adobe programs utilize Workspaces.  Changing to a different workspace profile reconfigures the visible panels, menus, tools and even keyboard shortcuts to better handle a specific task or workflow.
