Digital Arts Workshop Day 5
Today was our final time with the students before we were to have the parents night. Today we had to take out images and put them into iMovie to create out films. Also, we needed to go into garageband and generate the audio counterparts to what we've created visually. Potentially, this looked to be the busiest day yet...and it was.
It turned out that while my files were all cleaned up, the background which I had cleared out just filled itself back up with white. What I realized was that I needed to save the files as PSD (PhotoShop Document) instead of JPG because there isn't any negative space in a JPG and so I had to take all of my JPG files and erase the white filled in and then save the m as PSD once again. Needless to say we didn't get around to animating every scene and so that meant more work outside of class for the mentors.
Even though we weren't going to be able to animate everything in our short time with the students, we were still able to talk with them and flesh out all of the ideas they had so the picture was still very much theirs. We we were also able to complete a majority of the audio files including one of the boys being able to create a piece of music that would play during the last scenes of the film. All in all it was a successful day and we were able to complete the film on our next prep day to be ready for the parents day.
