UNIT 7: HISTORY OF ANIMATION "MAKING A FLIPBOOK".

THE HISTORY OF ANIMATION

WHAT IS ANIMATION?

Animation is the process of designing, drawing, making layouts and preparation of photographic sequences which are integrated in the multimedia and gaming products. Animation involves the exploitation and management of still images to generate the illusion of movement.

TYPES OF ANIMATION

5 Basic Types Of Animation 
(information and images from the web www.nyfa.edu)

  • Cel (Celluloid) Animation. This is the original hand-drawn cel animation where the artist literally has to draw thousands of images on special paper and have them photographed, frame by frame.

  • 2D Animation. This is vector-based animation, and has two distinct advantages: it is cheap and easy to access. You need a basic understanding of key frames and mostly uses software such as Adobe Animate CC

  • 3D Animation. 3D animation and visual effects are, quite simply, the way of the future. 3D animation operates on different principles, and is more akin (similar) to puppetry than traditional animation. For this, you need to learn how to digitally model a character, sculpt it perfectly and give it a skeleton that you can move and manipulate. You’ll have to pose the model at certain frames, and then let the computer do the rendering.

  • Motion Graphics. This visual effect technique involves moving graphic elements such as text or logos, mostly using software such as After Effects. Works Best For: Those working in the advertising industry or doing multimedia projects, or even designing the opening of film titles.

Adobe After Effects


  • Stop Motion. Stop motion is like traditional animation, except instead of drawing, you have clay models and a set that you have to carefully manipulate to produce animation. Stop motion can also be done with puppets, cut-outs, silhouettes and even action figures. In the past, stop motion was used as a form of special effects for live-action films, and has largely been replaced by 3D animation and visual effects work. However, there are filmmakers — like Tim Burton — who work almost exclusively with stop-motion. Think: Laika Films’ “Coraline,” “ParaNorman,” and recently “Kubo and the Two Strings.”

HISTORY OF ANIMATION

Here is some information about Images in Motion, the History of Animation. Here is a brief trailer and introduction to PIXAR STUDIOS, founded February the 3rd, 1986, by Steve Jobs, Ed Catmull and John Lasseter.

UNIT 6: THE COLOUR WHEEL, ACTIVITIES AND IDEAS.

COLOUR WHEEL WITH COLOUR PENCILS

Draw a 6 cm radius circumference and divide it in 12 equal parts, then colour the primary, secondary and tertiary colours (in this order) using only the three primary colour pencils. Write the names of the colours and divide it in two parts, indicating warm and cool colour schemes.

 


INTERACTIVE COLOUR ACTIVITIES AND IDEAS


  • Color Palette Generator. Enter the URL of an image to get a color palette that matches the image. This is useful for coming up with a website color palette that matches a key image a client wants to work with.



  • El color
    . All about color with a lot of interactive activities. 

  • Color in motion: Colour and emotions. How colour can provoke feelings or moods.

    • Colour Method. A fantastic game to help you understand the colour wheel. It is created for Method of Action, which is a collection of tools, games and articles to help you learn design.
