Have an illustration you would love to animate? Maybe that photograph you took is begging to come to life?
In this class I will break down the process top motion graphic and animation studios use from concept to completion. Starting with theory and principles, I will then take you through step by step tutorials on prepping your design for animation, and finally animating it.
The class will begin with a lesson on the 12 principles of animation and how they relate to motion graphics, as well as the general process all studios go through from idea to completion. Following that you will prepare your own design, photograph, comic, etc, in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, breaking it apart and preparing it for After Effects. After that I will discuss thinking in time, and go into timeline detail on how to use the graph editor to create custom slick movement. The class will culminate with sharing your final animation (or animation in progress) with the class and receive feedback from your peers and instructors.
I will also be sharing resources, tutorials, and a look into some of my own projects.
Hope to see you in class!
