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!
- Each animation must be exactly 15 seconds long.
- The animation must contain the following:
- A character catching the ball from the left side of the screen
- The ball transforming in some way
- A character interacting with the transformed object
- The object turning back into a ball
- 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.
