Motion graphics are everywhere. We see them everyday on tv, in the movie theater and on the websites we frequent. They are vital form of communication and can be used to engage audiences. Whether it's very formal animated text or a wacky animated image, motion graphics have changed the way we deliver information. This class introduces students to the concept of motion graphics, how to draw in an audience with movement and how to convey thoughts and ideas. This class is split into two projects. The first project is very guided to ensure students are used to the workflow and tools of the software. Students can choose or develop a project of their choice for the second half of the class. Adobe After Effects is the primary software for this class. Enroll in a single session for 6 weeks, or the full semester for 12 weeks!
