Miss Sorci’s Year 9 and 10 Media Arts Students were very fortunate to host Murdoch University Creative Arts Department Lecturer Jason Dohle and Student Teacher Kyle Dessent earlier this month.
Mr Dohle and Mr Dessent taught the students how to to use the Adobe After Effects, which is a special effects program that manipulates and creates visual effects, motion graphics, and animation.
The students learnt how to use this program in conjunction with a green screen to create a transparency and resulted in them successfully inserting an alien into a cowboy movie scene.
It was a fantastic incursion and the students enjoyed learning about this program .
The introduction to special effects editing has sure piqued their interest on how they can apply this to their own class work. Well done everyone!
