2009 Rotoscope Collaborative Flash Animation

Thanks to Scott

The 2009 “Rotoball” project is open to any student or class, elementary through college. There are a few rules to follow, but the project sounds like a whole-heap of fun and would give you an excuse (like you need one) to get busy with your favorite Adobe programs – think Flash, Photoshop, Premiere and After Effects.

The idea is to create a short story involving a ball. Your 15 second video is combined with other people’s stories to create a collaborative multimedia extravaganza!

The Rules

  1. Each animation must be exactly 15 seconds long.
  2. The animation must contain the following:
    1. A character catching the ball from the left side of the screen
    2. The ball transforming in some way
    3. A character interacting with the transformed object
    4. The object turning back into a ball
    5. The ball exiting the right hand side of the screen

Visit the Rotoball website for additional information, rules, resources, lesson guideline, and tutorials.

Sounds fun!  I wish I had more time this semester to dedicate to this project but I am going to my Graphic Design students the option to do it for their final project.  Will post samples then.
