Ok so this is a bit of a style departure from what we have been doing, but this is where I ended up! I teach art to elementary kids, and this is my attempt to channel a little bit of childlike charm through animation. I wanted something light hearted, but also engaging enough to draw people to dig deeper into a serious topic. Sure, you might say it looks like it was done by a 7 year old, but that's what I meant it to be! (wink wink ;) or maybe it is the best I can do with animation!
This was a fun one! The footage was amazing and I was just trying to pace it right and create a fitting pace and feel. I found some new audio and tried to make a pretty major transition from one to the other and back at the superman jump. I don't think it is where it needs to be, but overall I enjoy watching it so it must not be a terrible edit!

I created my own text animations to practice keyframes. It was a bit tricky to create the effect I wanted with smooth transitions. You can kind of see what I wanted to do, but it just didn't flow as I had planned. It was the little things like centering the text, or lining up different lines of text to the shape animation. Once I started adding keyframes it all started to turn into a mess! Starting over after a rough draft was helpful to simplify the process and learn from my inexperience.
Rearranging clips on timeline. Is there a way to change the default from overwrite (when you click and drag a cilp to reorder) to insert? I threw in a lot of rough cuts to rearrange, and learned to press [ctrl/pc] to toggle to insert, but the process seems cumbersome. Maybe it is just me?
When I would insert clips in the timeline, the audio (music) would also shift even when moved down to my A3 layer. I either locked the layer or toggled the “sync lock” function next to mute to have this stop happening.
