Create your own animated title sequence

About the Class

Ever wanted to add great animated titles to your film projects?  Whether you are making a short film or just some home movies, motion graphics and simple animations can help bring your quality of work to the next level.

This class is for anyone who wants to create, engage, and have fun with the art of "The Animated Title Sequence." 

What You'll Learn

  • Concept Development. You'll take an idea and mold it into a sequence by story boarding. 
  • After Effects Basics and Animation Techniques. We'll be jumping into text manipulation and creating assets in Illustrator/Photoshop.
  • Executing and Finalizing your Animated Sequence. We will be discussing how to add finishing touches to your title sequence and go over how to export your finished product.

What You'll Make

We'll be creating a title sequence for any film that you like. Everyone will pick a film that is either their own or that is already on the big screen. The point is to pick something that you feel passionately about and know you will have fun creating. Once you have your film in mind, we will create story boards that represent a rough look at what the sequence will look like. This is usually what clients will want to see before giving you the full go ahead. From there, we will start creating any assets in Illustrator or Photoshop. These are the parts that you will then take into After Effects and begin animating. Since this is a heavily text-based project, we will be going over some ways to make your text pop! Lastly, you will come out of this class with a finished title sequence that is about 30 seconds (or more). 

You have the option to create your assets digitally or analog - both work! This class will also teach you the techniques for transitioning your work from an analog medium to digital if you're interested in doing so.
