New Old School Animation

Posted on Aug 25, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Aug 25, 2015

A webinar developed for Adobe Education APAC looking at some older visual presentation techniques in a digital age. Content covered included: *Animation in the classroom  (not just in The Arts) *GIFs *Zoetropes *Stop motion techniques *Cinemagraphs Will post up a link to the video of the event once it is online (then you can see all the GIFs in action). I have posted this up in case anyone would like the resources – I’ve loaded it up with as many hyperlinks as it would hold. Hyperlink text is in green but there are others hidden in there too so hover your mouse over any images to see if they become clickable. A little educational treasure hunt to make things interesting. Original event description: Zoetropes are one of the oldest types of animation (they even pre-empt film). This fun and simple technique can be used to introduce teachers and students alike to some of the fundamentals of animation, simple After Effects animating techniques, and sa... Read More

Zoetropes in After Effects

Posted on Aug 24, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Aug 24, 2015

This short tutorial will run you through one method of creating a zoetrope in After Effects. A zoetrope is a primitive animation device. A zoetrope is a cylindrical drum with holes cut in the side for the viewer to look through. On the inside of the drum are sequentially changing images (like a flip book). The holes on the side create a strobe-like effect when spun which creates the illusion of movement. This tutorial will run you through techniques and skills associated with imitating this effect in After Effects. It is a good way to get your head around the concepts of frame rates and how these can be adjusted for specific effects.  Use this  for converting your completed zoetrope into a GIF Some cool zoetrope examples:Traceloops (the master of hand drawn animation) Embroidered Zoetrope Plastic Infinite The Cyclotrope Alimation

From Line Art To Brushed Illustration

Posted on Aug 18, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Aug 20, 2015

I found this tutorial online and set it up as a pdf for easier following.  Its great because it goes from beginner illustration and the tools to learn through basic color design and then into shading.  All along learning more tools and techniques and learning how to illustrate, shade and use color concepts to complete the design.  This is a great assessment to see how students have developed over the course of the assignment.  At the same time I have found that this assignment gives students vast knowledge of Photoshop Basics and Color Theory.  This assignment can be developed along with the full vector detail using Illustrator the Live Paint Bucket and Expanding Appearance the Shading in detail.

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.

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.

Guardians of the Galaxy Poster - Photoshop Tutorial

Posted on Aug 5, 2015 by Andrew Lai Last Activity on Aug 24, 2015

Hello all! Attached is a resource I use with my Year 7 and 8 ICT classes, also suitable for higher levels. The tutorial allows students to develop a range of Photoshop skills through remaking an existing Hollywood movie poster. I find that my students are particularly engaged with projects like this as they are familiar with the topic in this case "Guardians of the Galaxy". This tutorial is broken down into three key production phases including: background, images and text. It address skills like: deep etching, using the text tool, gradients, masking, free transform, groups, layering and blending modes. I also usually run a unit on design analysis before proceeding to practical tutorials. Students are also encouraged to create their own remakes or original posters after completing this tutorial. I have attached some student examples for your referral.  This Photoshop tutorial is at an intermediate level and requires some basic knowledge of Photoshop and is suited for both Adobe CS6 and...

Table Tent Template

Posted on Aug 4, 2015 by Tyler Dockery Last Activity on Aug 4, 2015

When presenting to a group, it is often difficult to remember names and make connections with participants. Sometimes, it is helpful for users to remember their motivation for coming, and how they feel at the end may be different from how they felt at the beginning. Sometimes, they need to ask you a question and forget your contact info, and sometimes they want additional help but don't want to ask in front of their co-workers. I have created this table tent template for presenters. It has a large area for names, contact information etc. Folded in half lengthwise, it creates a great presenting helper keeping peoples name and department at your fingertips. These .INDD and .AI files can be customized to you and your presentation, and only uses text and shapes for easy editing. Please enjoy! Tyler Dockery
