Event description

Description

Dates: March 13, March 14, March 15

Whether you’re a painter who wants to bring your works to life, a designer who wants to tackle motion graphics or an animator who wants to explore new forms of digital cut-out animation, this class can teach you how to set your art into motion using After Effects and Photoshop.

We’ll explore a broad set of 2-D and 3-D techniques and help you work on more personal projects. Your instructor and fellow participants are here to help you achieve After Effects greatness!

Note: If you have never used a Mac before, we recommend you take Mac Basics before taking this class.

Prerequisite: We recommend having a basic understanding of Adobe Creative Suite software such as Photoshop, InDesign and/or Illustrator prior to taking this class, but prior experience is not required.

This class is part of our Animation & Visual FX track. Learn more about our media education tracks here

Open Signal is a Safe Space

Open Signal is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for the community. Open Signal does not and will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations, and we ask that you do the same when you attend our workshops and events.

Open Signal is fully wheelchair-accessible. Reasonable accommodations may be made upon request.

Equipment Certification

Open Signal workshops grant certification on the equipment and software taught in the course unless otherwise noted.

Our workshops and equipment are made available to the community at an affordable rate because we want to amplify your voice on our public access cable channels. Join our community of media-makers! We ask that you submit work regularly in exchange for the free use of Open Signal equipment and studios.

Workshops participants must attend ALL workshop sessions order to receive certification. No make-up sessions will be allowed except in cases of emergency. All certified students must complete a brief New Producer Orientation (NPO) before they are given access to our equipment. Students under the age of 18 will need to complete an NPO in the presence of their parent or guardian in order to check out equipment from Open Signal.
