After this lesson, students will be able to:
- define and give examples of stop motion animation
- create their own stop motion animation
Your task is to create a short stop-motion film about any subject you like.
You may work in pairs or individually to complete this project. The outcome
should be as professional as possible. Familiarize yourself with recent
award-winning stop motion films to get an idea of the quality of work being
done. Also ensure that you pay close attention to the marking guide so you
know exactly what you need to do/include to gain maximum marks.
Your animation should be between 30 seconds to 1 minute long. You must include at least one character. It need not be a humanoid, in fact, it might be more interesting if you use an inanimate object instead, but overall you should be able to demonstrate a range of
animation principles and timing with your project.
Students will gain an understanding of the basic functioning of Photoshop
be able to edit images to meet a specific purpose. They will gain experience with the Photoshop’s 3D tools as well as various image editing tools such as Hue/Saturation, Gaussian Blur, Layer Style, and create a custom image that includes a 3D model.
This lesson uses a variety of Photoshop tools to take an image of a celebrity (or of the student) and add in fake tattoos. Students begin with a photograph and give it tattoos using such Photoshop tools as the Move tool, Transform Scale, Layer Blending Mode, Gaussian Blur, Transform Warp, Layer Opacity, Color Range, Layer Visibility, the Eraser and Brush tools, and adjusting the foreground color. The lessons ends by having students place tattoos on themselves. They will turn in the assignment (before and after) into their blog page.
Gain a working understanding of the After Effects User Interface and the art of Motion Graphics.
Work through the provided course on www.pluarlsight.com to learn the basic fundamentals of After Effects CC by adding animation to text and syncing to music.

The students will use layers, layer adjustments, magnetic lasso, lasso, magic wand, quick mask and quick selection tools to edit an object in Photoshop.
Students will take a simple black and white image and add some color to it to create a wonderful emphasis effect or to breathe new life into an old, worn out image. This will give us some great work with masks as well as modifying selections and working with Adjustments. Other tools used will be the magnetic lasso, quick selection tool, and magic wand tool.

Students will depict movement using simple flipbook techniques and will be able to
define basic animation vocabulary: persistence of vision, registration, key frames, and
You will design a simple 24 page flip book, that shows fluidity of motion and attention to detail. Use the resources below to help you understand the medium. The drawings do not have to be complicated, but the final version should be done in pen and in color!
1. Add a title and your name to the front of the flipbook.
2. Decide on the “story” you will tell in the flipbook – there should be a beginning, a middle and an ending
3. Number the pages somewhere on the page.
4. You may start your drawings in rough draft in pencil, BUT they must be finished in pen and in color.
5. When you have completed your flipbook, you will take a movie – close-up, to show how your flipbook works. Be sure that the movie is clear and it shows your flipbook in the best light.
