It was a great pleasure to be on the the Gold Coast in Queensland to spend Monday June 3 at Merrimac State High School with Adobe Education Leader Rose Duggan and group of her talented media students.
The great thing about Character Animator is that it allows for real-time animation because facial features can be tracked by any web-cam.
The students were challenged to work with a small team to create a short story that featured at least one digital puppet and, if possible, the incorporation of human talent via a green screen.
I was very impressed with what the students achieved in a relatively short amount of time. Even though some of the groups didn’t have a finished product at the end of the day, what they achieved in the process of design, collaboration and creativity was very impressive.
