iPad Animation Contest

02/11/12  |  Posted by Scott Ligon  |  Posted in Digital Canvas - News

Virtually every Foundation student will soon participate in an iPad animation contest. Contest results will be hosted here in a few weeks! The contest is a project that takes place in every Foundation Digital Synthesis class. Every student will create a thirty second traditional frame-by-frame animation created using Flip Boom Draw on the iPad. In the class with the best work,EVERYONE in the class gets a $15 iTunes card.The student that creates the best video gets a $50 iTunes cardno matter what class she or he is in! Flip Boom Draw is an iPad app made by Toon Boom. Many professional broadcast cartoons have been made using software made by this illustrious company. In this assignment, each student makes a 30 second black and white animated video using frame-by-frame drawing (like a flip book). They must begin and end the video with a straight horizontal line down the middle of the frame. The videos from each Digital Synthesis class will be edited together into a single longer video. Since they all start and end with a straight horizontal line down the middle, the videos can easily be edited together. These combined class videos, one from each of the eleven Digital Synthesis classes, will be submitted to our judges, Professors Richard Fiorelli, Barbara Chira and Jimmy Kuehnle. These judges will choose the winning class and the grand-prize winning artist. In the class with the best work, EVERYONE in the class gets a $15 iTunes card. The student that creates the best video gets a $50 iTunes card no matter what class she or he is in! Professor Scott Ligon is the coordinator for the Foundation Digital Classes as well as the Digital Canvas Initiative. In order to familiarize himself with Flip Boom Draw (as well as provide a clear example for students), Scott did the assignment too! You can see this animation below: Thanks to Professors Kidist Getachew, Mark Tekushan, Adri Wichert and Kristen Rogers, who, along with Scott Ligon, are teaching Digital Synthesis classes and helping to organize this ambitious project. Incidentally, Digital Synthesis classes will also explore a second type of animation, keyframe animation, during a narrative video project. In a keyframe animation, objects can be moved or scaled by defining states or characteristics in one frame and then changing these characteristics in another, later frame.
