TRY THIS PROJECT
1. Chose a word as your theme and create an outline template in Illustrator. Set the final pixel dimensions of the motion graphic, as well as the size and placement of each letter module.
2. Assign a team of participants for each letter.
3. Give each participant a letter template, and ask him or her to make a two-second motion sequence of that letter. Participants must keep the fixed size of their module, and the letter must start and end in the position indicated on the template.
4. When all letters are completed, edit them in After Effects to create one large animated piece. Add original, student-created sound.
