I am pleased to present to you our second Udemy Course. And it will be a practical course in which we apply the knowledge obtained in our first theoretical course.
In first part of this course we will create animated music videos Using Adobe After Effects. I will show you in all details step-by-step the process of creating of funny cartoon man for animation. We will teach this man to move his arms and legs, blink, speak, and give him stylish clothes. In between I'll show you how you can use this character so that he tells about your website, your class on Skillshare or your channel on YouTube. And in the end we will give him some cool musical instrument and teach him to play this instrument.
For this work you will need the Adobe After Effects program of any available for you version. Or you can use our free educational version of After Effects. Creating these lessons, I was counting that you already have some familiarity with the basic principles of work in After Effects. But even if you do not have the slightest idea of how to work in After Effects - this is not such a big problem. In this case, you can simply learn our first class - Basic Animation in Adobe After Effects, and will get all the necessary knowledge for further work.
In the second part of our course we'll try “gaming technique” training – to transform study into an exciting game. It is simply amazing how many dedicated and talented people gathered at Udemy - I propose to use these talents to create our own Udemy Animation Studio. Let us all together make cartoons about what we're doing on Udemy and how wonderful it is - to live each day learning something new. Animation studio is good because everyone here can find application to his talent. If you are author and write stories, you can write scripts and dialogues for our cartoons. Artists can create characters for animation and scenery. Actors - to engage in voicing of characters, musicians - create musical accompaniment. And of course we’ll need animators, to breathe life into our characters.
To animate, in my opinion, may everybody. To teach everyone this absolutely necessary skill, we have created a series of exciting and easy to understand lessons on animation in the Adobe After Effects program, which will allow you to quickly and easily master the basic skills necessary to make animation, and begin to animate. We invite everybody to participate in the work of our animation studio - here everyone will find some occupation to his taste. Write to us at community section and offer your ideas, sign up for our courses, create your projects and let's make cartoons!
As practical project, I propose you make a little cartoon about the adventures of Winnie the Pooh and his friends. Or write the script of the cartoon, on which we later will make film. Or draw your own character for our movie, or some interesting scene or background. Or voice any character of our cartoon. You can use our models and footages, or make cartoon with your own characters. It is desirable that these cartoons reflect the main, as we see it, idea of our training: Learning is fun.
Hello. My name is Vadim Daschinsky. And yes – I’m living in the depths of Russia. Working in the advertising department of local TV, I gained quite a good knowledge of video editing and motion graphics software, so now I'm making animated video tutorials in which funny cartoon creatures in simple and accessible manner tell about various computer programs.
I’m making cartoons too. In Russia my cartoons and my tutorials are quite popular. I can say that they have grown up a whole generation of young animators. So now I want to try to make these lessons in English. I hope my English is not too terrible. And I hope my lessons will be useful for you.
If you have any interesting ideas on creating of exciting animated video - write to me. Maybe we'll make some cartoons together.
