Introduction to the Lesson
Animations are created when we take many photos of a subject and rapidly play them back. The slight differences in the photos make the illusion that the pictures are moving. Animations are often presented as vide games or motion pictures. There are many types of animation including; claymation, pixilation, sand animation, cut-out animation, and whiteboard animation. They type we will be focusing on is whiteboard animation.
Marker board animations are made when you draw your images on a whiteboard, take a picture, change them slightly, and take another picture, until you have finished the movement or story. The smaller the movements, the clearer the video will turn out. It is important to have t tripod when you do this technique because of the camera moves too much, your images may be blurry or your animation might not be as clear as you would like. When you are done taking your photos, you simply upload them into Photoshop and turn them into an animation! The next step is to add sound in Garageband and cool effects in Imovie.
