Project Description

Making of Animated Music Video


  The class project will be very simple - create your own cartoon musician, give him any musical instrument, and teach to play it. You can use our models - just somewhat modify them. Or you can draw your own musician.  And then we will gather all our musicians together and with make them a music video similar to this. I think this style will suit us very well. It is good that there are a lot of flashes of individual clips - just what we need. We can show the work of all participants of the project.

   Click this link to see music cuts from our cartoon “The true story of the yellow Kalyna” which show you how you can use our models to make your own cartoons.


Download Distributive of Adobe After Effects 7.0  With this program we create our cartoons. If you are just beginning your acquaintance with the Adobe After Effects, you can use this simple and accessible free version, which is quite sufficient to make animation. Later, if you want, you can easily go to any more modern version. Or you can use any version of After Effects, which is at your disposal - they are all very similar to each other.
