My Fugleflick filmmakers created this effect for their upcoming movie. It was intended to look like the artist was painting The Scream, by Edvard Munch, then becoming the subject of the painting with his own body. There were a bunch of steps to making this illusion. Let's see if we can spell them out below.
This trick doesn't have to be so tricky...
Spin into the art and Jump back out
Falling Out of a Painting
You can add the "magic" if you need to...
Watch the Fugleflick "TRY YOUR BEST"
Try Your Best is the student made movie that inspired this video effect.
This snow globe effect is a fun way to teach transparency, animation, and layering with green screen. Students can add a still image, animation, pre-recorded or live video to their globe. I was inspired by the Green Screen Maker Space Book by Todd Burleson (lesson 6). I downloaded the image suggested and began trying to figure out a way to turn the project into a video with a layer of snow. I go through all the steps in this app smash in the tutorial below or here.
My app smash journey:
Grab my resources and get started:
Download my video below and import it into the top layer of the Green Screen App by Do Ink. Use the mask tool to make the center of the globe semi-transparent (see step 6 above). Then download my white image here. Import this into the bottom layer. Now you're ready to add a still, animation, or live video to the center layer.
Creativity Prompts: (to make this a lesson)
See this post from Terri Eichholz prompting students to consider what it would be like if you lived inside a snowglobe (as seen in the short film, Bumbleville.) See this post too.
I taught an animation workshop today at the Taste of Tech 2017 conference. Below are the lessons we tried to cover and links to the resources. Click on the Thinglink image to go directly there. Thumb through the slideshow for quick tips. Page 1. Page 2.
I was able to attend Kim Darche's session about questioning techniques. To help me remember the great ideas she was sharing, I made this sketchnote.
I started combining three free apps to make one strong statement about contour line negative and positive portraits.
The Photo Grid collage app is free, clean, and full of functions. (I like that it doesn't leave a watermark on your artwork like pic collage). I played with a bunch of ways to put the negative/positive images together in the app. I thought about matching the images so they complete each other. I thought about notans and the play of light and dark as I created these.
Maggie won the iPad animation party in the Dryden raffle to raise money for ABC/25 Grant Foundation. She and her guests had an app smashing session while we transformed ourselves into flying fairies. See the lesson here. We used the iPad camera, Superimpose App , SketchbookX, DoInk Animation app, and the Google Drive to share our files. View the fairies on Artsonia here.
