  • Work through my sunrise example step-by-step. Upload your version of this project to your WordPress blog. Please note, you will make a better impression if you make this animation your own. Don’t be scared to take things a little further and experiment.
  • Now you need to come up with a unique animation concept of your own. Create a storyboard for this concept. (Make sure that your idea is not too complicated, but don’t limit yourself by making it overly simple.) Scan your sketches in and upload it to your WordPress blog.
  • The next step is to create the file and folder structure. Please take a screenshot of your folder structure and hand it in along with your project.
  • Create your animation in After Effects. Upload your project file and your rendered animation to your WordPress blog.

Mandatory Assignment 06 – Photo Essay

You are to create a photo essay that portraits a person.

A photo essay is a series of photographs communicating a story. The pictures don’t have to be presented in a specific order.

You are free to choose your model, but it’s vital to the assignment that the person gives consent to the photo shoot, and agrees that the pictures may be published. To ensure this is done correctly, fill out this contract. (Note: The document is in Norwegian. English speaking students are advised to locate a model contract release form which fill the requirements of the laws and regulations of your country.)

And other contracts

You are not allowed to use yourself as a model. On order to keep credibility in your assignment, we strongly advice against using babies, children, husband/wife/partner or girlfriend/boyfriend.

Note that the images may be used in later assignments.

Requirements

  • Six images for the photo essay telling a story.
  • One image with natural lighting, and the remaining five images with optional lighting (artificial or natural).
  • In addition to the six photos, you are to produce one black/white studio photograph of a single object that is closely linked to the person you are portraying. This image will be used as the “cover” and is therefore in addition to the six pictures in the photo essay.
