Learn to generate movement systems with style in order to give your animations personality and intention
Adding movement to the graphic design represents a new layer of expression for any creator, but also another layer of difficulty. To facilitate this transition, Borja Holke - motion designer with more than 10 years of experience and clients like Canal + and Converse - will teach you to master the timing and the acceleration curves in Adobe After Effects to help you create your own movement language.
In this course you will learn how to use the professional animation tools available in After Effects from scratch.
What's included in this course?
You will start getting to know Borja and his professional career, the agencies in which he has worked and the studies with which he has collaborated, in order to later learn about his influences in the world of motion design .
Next, you will learn Adobe After Effects and the uses that Holke has given him in his career. From there you will install it on your computer, if you still do not have it.
You will learn some basic tools of the program: layers, shape layers, keyframes , animation curves and renders .
From here, you will start to design the movement, based on the analysis of the movement of a character whose body expression and personality will serve as a reference to animate.
You will learn to create a basic movement library with animations of scale, position, stretch , rotation and drag. From there you will create choreographic animations, in which you will combine styles with cause and effect relationships that will result in animation sequences.
Finally, Borja will give you some tricks to make a good reel and devastate social networks. It will teach you how to plan the sequence for your reel , transitions and other editing tricks.
What is this course project?
You will make a series of 12 animations ready to publish on Instagram and a mini reel that will serve as a piece for your portfolio.
