Today we are going to use Stykz to apply the ideas that we practiced in class last week. We are heading towards the creation of a 7 second Vine compatible illustration.
All I want you to do today is "play". You will need to borrow a USB stick and copy the Stykz folder to the d: drive on your computer. You will need to run the program locally in order to get it to work on the school computers.
You should practice the different forms of portraying "life' and movement, as well as perspective (a few of you were very interested in how to make things look like they "zoomed" last week).
As an extension, those who finish up their video are encouraged to use Audacity to create a soundtrack that we can merge with the animation. We will have to work together in small groups to make this happen.
Here is a tutorial to help you with some of the concepts we looked at in class today. Make sure you look at this too.
These are good examples of what we should be able to produce by the end of this week:
