Mini Movie Project—Create a movie in After Effects. The movie could be the opening credits of a fictional movie, a visual poem, or an educational infographic. Images should be incorporated into the movie, however, the focus should be the use of type and After Effects techniques. The movie should be between 1-1:30 minutes long for the animation, 1:30-2 minutes long for footage. All movies will be uploaded to Vimeo.
1. Infographic–things you would like to inform or educate your audience
Heavy in photography, creative way to show type
Heavy in Illustration, all footage can be created in Ai
2. Title Sequence—Set a mood for the movie
What kind of footage do they use? Still photography or motion footage?
What techniques do they use? Can we achieve this?
Interesting way to add your type.
All photoshop or illustration layers
3. Music video, manifesto or Visual poem?
Lists go on…A story with a cartoon character, an interview, a step by step How to video, an intro video for an organization…
Where can we get our footage?
Still photograph, shoot your own video (horizontal, steady tripod, high resolution, bright light), illustrations created by ai, manipulated images create by photoshop or download footage online. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqoBpT5DP6U
