In this 8-session curriculum, youth use video editing software, such as Adobe Premiere Elements, to create a stop motion animation. Stop motion animation promotes creativity by encouraging young people to imagine a world in which they can bring everyday objects to life. Young people build technical skills while crafting messages that make a lasting impact. Educators will find facilitation tips and strategies in this and in other resources from the collection. Learn to help students utilize media tools to communicate their ideas effectively and tell their stories in unique and personal ways. Throughout the curriculum selected youth media projects are referenced to watch and reflect on. This collection of youth media can be found on the Create with Purpose Vimeo Channel.

In this 8-session We have Stop motion animation curriculum, We have used Adobe Premiere to create a stop motion animation. Stop motion is an animation technique to make a physically manipulated object or persona appear to move on its own. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence.
In this 30-hour course, you will learn to create stop-motion animation films using Adobe Premiere Elements. We will explore a variety of mediums including clay, legos, paper, pipe cleaners and white boards to create our animations. We will add music, dialog and sound FX using a variety of audio recording devices, stock libraries and Adobe Soundbooth. Digital video cameras, web cams, and digital still cameras will be used, so feel free to bring your own. We will learn digital video terminology, explore the Premiere Elements interface, and use tools to create transitions, titles, and perform basic editing functions. This class will also cover creating a DVD and exporting video to the web.
A scaffold for a professional learning opportunity for teachers focusing on using 'Stop frame animation' as a intepretive tool for enhancing literacy.
Students use Adobe Premiere Clip to create a stop-motion video. Students can use an iPad to take photos to create a stop-motion video.
Numerous TV shows and movies make use of chroma keying (aka green screens). Take a walk on the moon, visit Hogwarts, or tell the story of a forgotten tree about to be destroyed. If you are thinking of using this technique, this project example will help you understand the process. Get an overview of the steps required to be successful. Middle school students participating in the Adobe Youth Voices program used green screens to bring the "Friendship Tree" to life as part of a stop motion animation movie. View an interactive Flash slideshow containing helpful captions and photographs of the nine month long production process. The Friendship Tree was shown at the Institute of Contemporary Art - Boston on June 2, 2011. Special thanks to Moby for granting permission to use "Wait For Me (Villa Remix)".
Learn the fundamentals of motion graphic design and how to teach amazing motion graphics projects.
Here's a quick tutorial on how to make a stop-motion video using Photoshop CS5Extended. I did this demo. last summer at the Adobe Summer Institute for the Adobe Education Leaders, but it is also a short version of another tutorial I did here.
Students animated the melody of a jazz song using imagery inspired by Paul Klee from hand drawn and painted surfaces, making shapes in Photoshop and animating in After Effects. The final animation was given to our school's jazz band, under the direction of Patrick Bowen, without any audio and then interpreted by the students into a new song. The piece was projected during one of their performances and they played their composition live.
Class / large group projects can be very difficult. I suggest you do exactly what Shane Koyczan, the creator of this powerful anti-bullying piece did. He wrote a long spoken word piece speaking out against the damaging effects of bullying, and then handed that over to many. many different animators. Each animator took on one segment of the piece, and created the visuals in their own style and media. It is at once both eclectic and diverse. And, it is so powerful, so strong. A class could take this on - write and record the spoken word piece and then animate segments, in groups or as individuals, and then assemble the whole piece at the end. Voila! A successful whole class project. I have indicated a few subject areas that are obvious - others could use this idea as well.
Each month we invite an industry "name" to talk to the Interactive Multimedia and Advertising and Graphics Design students at my College. I record these lectures and make them available to my students. In this lecture we featrure Val Head, CSS Animation "Goddess of All She Surveys".
This lesson plan is designed to take students through the entire process of creating an animated short movie; from script through to final project students will learn the creative process, animation principles, and further develop skills in the Adobe software programs that are required to complete the project. A multi-week project, students will complete milestones that lead to the final movie completion: develop a scriptcompile/create assets and sound effectscreate a voice overcomplete a storyboarddevelop an animaticcomplete the final animation The lesson plan contains several links to introduce many of the above milestones. There are also multiple additional free resources to introduce topics and learning available on YouTube, Vimeo, Lynda.com, etc. A sample final project has been included.
Now that students understand the basics of animation, they can begin to get creative by using filmmaking techniques and animated characters to make their projects visually interesting and engaging. Use this activity to introduce how to create interesting visual effects and transitions using the Timeline, classic tweens, motion tweens, graphic filters and motion presets. Additionally teach your students how to create character animations using inverse kinematics and sprite sheets.
How to approach teaching timeline/keyframe based animation in the classroom.
Animating your content will make it come to life and creating animations is a core functionality of Adobe Flash Professional. Use this activity to introduce the basics of animation, specifically understanding frames and keyframes, how to work with animations on the timeline, and how to create and work with tweens, including easing tweens, classic tweens, and motion tweens.
Learn the fundamentals of character design and how to teach amazing character animation projects.
Even a small amount of easing, if applied correctly to an animated object, can go far in conveying a truer sense of reality and weight. Animate CC includes a number of mechanisms for applying easing in this way, and we will examine how to apply simple and advanced easing in this article… with a focus on the new and improved Motion Editor.
This lesson plan will lead students to create an animation video clip using a combination of animation techniques and ADOBE applications.
This lesson teaches you how to use the Timeline function in Photoshop CS6 (the Animation Panel in Photoshop Extended CS5) to create an animation. It’s FUN! You load the drawings you’ve created for your animation into layers, load them into the Timeline and voila! An animation. It works well all on its own as a simple tool for creating animations or as a quick way to check your drawings for more complex animations. Explore and enjoy! THIS is empowering. My students are studying animation very specifically but - you could be creating an animation for virtually any subject. That is what makes this such a 21st century tool. It allows you to bring media literacy, digital literacy and visual literacy and storytelling into your classroom.
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!
