Introduction to Adobe After Effects

While generally regarded as a compositing application, Adobe After Effects has more accurately been described as a “Swiss army knife” of video production. Whatever the task, After Effects probably has a tool for accomplishing it. The program has been used in many major motion pictures such as Avatar and The Social Network. This course will give students a solid grounding in the application, showing them how to composite various elements together, animate text, create character animation, and move into the realm of 3D compositing. Basic experience using Mac computers is required, and students should bring their own external storage device (250GB or more).

The Aesthetics of Film
What the story is, what it is trying to convey, and the personal choices of a motion picture’s director all play a part and inform how a movie is presented to an audience. How an audience interprets this “code” is entirely up to them. This coding and decoding, coupled with the social, historical, and cultural factors surrounding a film’s production inform the final product. By grappling with these elements of narrative, this course introduces you to various aspects on the subject of film aesthetics. By learning how to “read” film as a text and utilize proper cinematic film grammar, you will begin to critically understand film as an art form and a product of its culture. We will examine each element’s function in the production of meaning in a text, and in doing so, generate a shared vocabulary by which we can all speak and write with intelligence, confidence, and specificity about the ways in which a motion picture affects us, and the ways film constructs meanings.
