Hello All, I am Ishita Jain, an architect, currently teaching at a university. I am proposing a Speculative Architecture Studio, where the students are required to build narratives of their contexts and we would like for them to learn After Effects as a tools.

I've been asked by a fellow awesome educator (Dan Armstrong) to make a in-depth tutorial for the Caped Movietrailer competition in Idaho. This is a huge competition where high school students from that USA state can make their very own original movie trailer in order to win great prizes for themselves and their school. In order to set them up I've made a 45 minute tutorial with several chapters about Premiere Pro and After Effects. It contains topics from ingesting footage in Premiere Pro until the final export in the Media Encoder. The tutorial has been made for the competition, but could be a valuable resource for other students as wel.
Hello All! Below is a link to a playlist i have gathered from across a variety of the best motion typography tutorial videos on YouTube. The playlists is arranged in a sequential order based on the level of difficulty. I have also attached two student examples from my Year 9 group. The project is to bring visual value to an existing or original piece of music using motion typography & graphics techniques. All work is produced on Adobe After Effects. These playlists serve as a great reference for my Year 9 and 10 students when they are undertaking the motion typography unit at school. Would love to get feedback on this list and suggestions for other motion typography or graphics based tutorials that you find valuable to your teaching!

Hello! I teach After Effects, among other things, in the Visual Communications program at Madison Area Technical College. In an effort to keep my class up-to-date, what are some "real world" projects I should include? Currently, they get used to movement and keyframes by animating verbs, followed up with a logo, kinetic typography quote, banner ad, basic keying, and some lower thirds. The final project is to create a title sequence for a movie, TV show or video game. Planning on adding some character animation next semester too. Any and all feedback is welcome!

This tutorial demonstrates the essentials of creating an animation using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe After Effects. The graphics are created in Illustrator and imported to After Effects to add animation and visual effects. The demonstration recreates the Apollo 11 moon landing, with the lunar lander arriving on the moon's surface. This tutorial could be adapted for a history lesson, with students re-creating other historic events, or perhaps used in a Drama or English lesson to create scenes from plays or novels. The final animation is saved in a format suitable for uploading to a video sharing site or a Virtual Learning Environment.
