Create fast & fun hand-drawn GIFs between 3s – 10s long during this remote workshop with Leslie Supnet. Learn the basics of animation such as squash & stretch, easing, timing through the creation of animated GIFs. No experience necessary- just patience and willingness to learn! We will be drawing on paper – not in Photoshop. Afterwards, we can upload them to GIPHY (must create an account) to share with the world.
– 1 or 2 packs of 100 4″x6″ index cards (white or any colour of your choosing)
– Pencils, markers, pencil crayons, paint and/or Sharpies
– Masking tape
– Phone, point and shoot camera or scanner
– Tripod for your camera to shoot overhead
– Adjustable lamps or clamp lights
– Light table (preferred but OK if you don’t have one)*
*Participants have access to our light tables (which will be sanitized) before the workshop. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to pick up on Friday.
