This is your last day to complete these – 2 Projects
#1 Storyboard Practice– using scenario, “grow” create an original animation storyboard. Your storyboard should be a detailed scene by scene of your prompt. What will represent “grow”? Include camera angles and helpful details for a modeler and animator to work with. Color is nice.
#2 The Animation:
- Using the concepts from the Illusion of Life, create an original animation representing your prompt.
- Discuss with your partner your color palette and objects you’ll need to model
- Focus on getting good illumination of your scene
- Select some audio for your final render
- Your animation will be 20-25 seconds in length with a title.
- Render in Eevee as .mp4 and place in this Google Folder with your Team Name.
- This project is due by end of day Wednesday. If you finish early, use your time to review the Skills USA 3D Animation and Visualization contest information in preparation for Thursday.
In the contest on Thursday you will be asked to take some screenshots of your modeling. For this, choose Viewport render. So the judges can see your modeling turn on Wireframe from the Overlays menu. That way we can see your materials and your modeling.
With your partner, review the Web Design Competition guidelines to get yourself prepared for the competition. You will have to complete a wireframe of your design, so make sure you figure out who will be responsible for that task. Today is a good time to think about:
- What Layouts your team knows how to do and can do
- What Navigation you feel comfortable with
- Discuss and figure out what areas you need to practice
- Do you know what meta information is and how to display it in the <head> element?
Here is a punch list of things you and your teammate should be comfortable doing. Remember, you won’t have access to the internet (against the rules) during the competition. Know our code!
- populating the head tag
- principles of responsive design
- max or min-width
- semantic html
- anchor tags and linking
- calling the different browser default font families
- images / resizing images
- flexbox or grid
- headers and footers
- ids and classes
- basic styling with CSS
