Final Short Film

Posted on Aug 15, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Aug 15, 2015

This is a culmination of every aspect students learned over the entire course of the year.  It includes lighting, producing/directing, editing, filming, filter effects, shot composition, location scouting and photography for story boards, special effects, animated titles, scriptwriting, story-boards, video research and final rendering.  This project still bugs me because they didn't complete what I think could be a really good short film.  However what they completed in my mind is really good for high school students.  Especially finding a burned down house to match the online video they found to assist what their actor did.

Sound Design Project

Posted on Aug 13, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Aug 22, 2015

One of the students most detailed projects that I use as a final project is the sound design project.  It gives a final assessment on all the areas that are taught throughout the year.  I find animated short films online and remove the sound.  Students have the choice to choose which video they want to do and then they must repeatedly watch the video and write down a list of sounds, sound effects and music they feel will enhance the video.  The choice of the mood, timing and sounds/effects music are all up to them.  Then they must download and organize their sounds to use.  Students will include critical thinking, problem solving skills, creativity, timing as well as visual effect, relativity to the theme, mood and meeting criteria and deadlines.  After they are completed, I allow them to view the original to see how they stack up against animated film students around the world.  Some without being biased are better than the originals.  The rule is they are not all...

Cartoon Illustration/Animation

Posted on Aug 13, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Aug 15, 2015

I had my students write short stories and then record the voices for each character.  Then the students drew, illustrated and exported their characters for animation in After Effects and Adobe Premiere.  Voice overs were recorded and edited using Audition and then inserted into the animation process.  Songs and sound effects were taken off royalty free web sites. Here is a finished animation of characters, backgrounds and facial features and mouth movements completed by one of my sophomores.

Student Showcase plan

Posted on Jul 29, 2015 by Amy Roberts Last Activity on Aug 8, 2015

I wanted to share a basic look at our Student Showcase that we hold each year.  We call it the Media MashUP and it is pretty simple to put together.  I have my graphic arts students create posters and programs to promote the event.  I use Google Docs to keep create an entry form. Students submit their work as a link on Youtube - so I don't have to deal with any files until I am getting ready for the award show night.  I have my Animation students create show opens and animation interstitials for the award show (ie: AND THE WINNER IS!) We rent a red carpet, have T-shirts made(graphic design students work) and have our photography students do red carpet photos.  I hold the event in our auditorium in Spring on the last Friday night of classes. I have 2 senior student act as hosts.  It's a great way to end the year.  Here is the link for my entry form: Our Facebook page with photos fro... Read More

Soundscape Task

Posted on Jul 22, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Aug 15, 2015

This is a short task to introduce students to the importance of sound in film and how they can harness it in Adobe Audition.  Sound can make or break a film. Bad sound is ten times more distracting than bad visuals and is something that audiences won’t forgive. The best way to get good sound is to record well on set and follow the right procedures. Sometimes issues are unavoidable and students get bad sound and it’s very important that they know how to fix (or cover up) sound issues. Provided (for free) with Adobe software is a collection of copyright free sound and music. This collection is enormous – over 11 thousand individual files. Using these sounds students are to create a 20 second soundscape that establishes a realistic location. These sounds can be found here.  I had my IT department place these files on one of our College drives (so that the students could access them without needing to download them themselves - there's more than 20gb of files here). I... Read More

Drum Machine

Posted on May 11, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Jun 20, 2015

The HTML 5 Drum Machine is (as the name suggests) an online drum machine. With a range of different drum sounds (crashes, snares, kicks, etc.), drumkits (Hip Hop, Electro, Acoustic, Techno, House) and editable volumes and tones it is great for composing across a range of tempos and styles.  Beats can be exported as WAV files which can then be imported into Adobe Audition as drum tracks. It takes a little bit of playing around with to get the hang of it but it is well worth the small investment in time.

Free Sound Effects and Music

Posted on Feb 19, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Jun 20, 2015

I have mentioned this in a comment on another post but figured I'd put it up here in case anyone doesn't know how to unlock this amazing part of the Adobe suite.  Adobe Audition (and Adobe programs in general) is packaged with heaps (thousands) of royalty free sounds. You simply need to download them and unzip them and you can import them into Audition, Premiere, Flash, etc. There are heaps and heaps of really well recorded and specific sound effects that you will never be lost for sound. My personal favourite is "Human Chew Banana". This is the link.   If that link doesn't work here is the URL that you can copy into your browser:

Standard Practical Exercise Reflection Sheet

Posted on Jan 27, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Jun 21, 2015

I use this for every practical exercise I have my students undertake (whether it is animation, photographic, film, planning, whatever).  I have students collate all of these together as a sort of a practical journal - the end result is a go to cheat sheet for all the skills we have covered. It is a brief selection of questions (with prompts) and is broad enough to suit any practical task. It is designed to be done by hand in the last 5 or 10 minutes of a practical session.
