Flat Animation Challenge
now that you're becoming a motion graphics master. I want you to put your skills to work by creating a simple little graphic that we can turn into an animated gIF gIF, however you call it and you can share online, what I want you to do is think of a special moment in your life, one of your favorite memories. And create a simple flat animation in this style with some sort of subtle motion to it. This little animation that I've created is one of my favorite memories. I was in Switzerland, visiting relatives back in 2014 and I proposed to Isabel, my wife who at that time was my girlfriend and she said yes in Switzerland and I actually proposed to her the same place where my dad proposed to my mom in a town called Sione. And it's also where my great grandfather is from. So there's lots of special uh Specialness to that place. And so I clearly remember that trip and the next day was Swiss National Day basically there for us americans, their fourth of july august 1st and we met our relatives...
in their swiss swiss chalet in the Swiss alps. And it was just this magical moment where we were watching these fireworks, we had just gotten engaged and we were literally on top of the world and it was just so amazing. So I created these little animated fireworks. And what I like about these kind of little animations is that they're not very advanced in the sense that the what we did, what I did in this isn't that advanced, but it just looks super cool. And it's something that is a style that I think works. And even though now that, you know how these things kind of work the animations, it might not seem that advanced to you, to someone who hasn't seen this. I think they're going to think that it's really cool. So these fireworks actually, we've played around with the repeater effect and that's what we're going to be doing to create this. And I'll show you how I did that. So that might be a little bit more advanced than where you are at today. Enough chit chat. Think of a special memory creates some sort of animated version of it. And then I want you to export it as an animated Gif. And I show you how to do that in the saving and exporting section of this course. So you might have to go to that one to know how to do that. And I'm going to do that with this animation that I'm doing right here. So you'll learn how to do that. Um, and then just posted to the course and in the follow up to this assignment, I'm going to be showing you exactly how I created this whole animation myself
