Steve kindly gave us the lesson to catch up on our blogs as it assessment week next week. I have kept up to date with my blog which is something i’m quite proud of as I have a tendency to leave things until they really need posting. (Wow, I must be learning.) I used the lesson to read over everything i’ve posted and learnt, and then edited a few images for my taxonomy project.
I’m still throughly enjoying Jays lesson, and today I learnt how to animate text in After Effects. Here’s a couple of animated text I created:
I’m really getting into After Effects and i’ve thought of an idea for my taxonomy project that I could apply my new knowledge in After Effects towards.
In Rob and Margot’s lecture we discussed next weeks deadline for the taxonomy project. We are expected to do a 6:40 minute presentation without any interruptions to 4 students and a teacher (YIKES!) We will then be given a grade for where we are with the project, which we will then go on to develop. I’m rather nervous about the presentation as talking to a group isn’t my strong point, but I realise this is a great time to build my confidence as this is something i’ve got to get used to. I will bring time management into consideration as I want to talk about all the important parts of my project.
We also did a small task where we screwed up paper several times (trying our best not to rip it) and going on to create type from it. Here’s an ‘E’ I created:
Talking about presenting to part of the class led me to think about last weeks episode of Educating Yorkshire. This doesn’t have much relevance to my usual blog posts, but I feel the need to share how amazing this student is overcoming his stutter.
