Animation and Visual Effects Introductory Workshop for teens on Sat, Nov 22, for ten bucks

In the entertainment arena, computer graphics is constantly growing and evolving. This workshop, says John Miralles, will introduce you to the field of entertainment computer graphics.

The Animation and Visual Effects Institute (AVEI) at LSUS has been founded to educate talented candidates for careers in those fields. Many of these areas of computer graphics use high-end software and techniques that can be exciting and a challenge to learn.

This workshop is intended to introduce a student with little or no prior exposure to the field of entertainment computer graphics. Topics to be covered will include basic digital imaging, using Adobe Photoshop, basic video compositing using HD footage and Adobe AfterEffects. An introduction to 3D Computer generated images will also be demonstrated.

By the end of the workshop, students will have created their first visual effects shot and have a greater understanding of the exciting fields.

For Ages 15 & up
Note: There will be a 1 hour lunch break from 12-1.
Due to popular demand, a second class has been scheduled.
High School Students ~ Pay only $10!! You have to register in person (have a valid Student ID) in the Continuing Education office in the Technology Center.

Miralles says he will offer a similar workshop for the under-15's in January.
