I've been asked to present a 3-day workshop on visual effects filmmaking for 10 students. I'll be mainly be using AE.
Here is what I'm thinking of initially:
Day 1 (3 hours):
- For the first day, it will be mainly an intro, presenting slides, fundamentals, examples ..etc
Day 2 (3 hours):
- On the second day we will have an intro to AE and will do small tutorials together to learn the basics.
Day 3 (3 hours):
- On the last day we will create a project, something simple like shooting one of the students and adding background and effects, they will see me creating a whole project from scratch. At the end we will have a short 30min Q&A.
The outline above is by no means fixed, but just an idea of what I have on mind. I haven't taught before and this will be my first experience. So I'm totally a noob.
I would be grateful hearing your comments and thoughts in order to improve on this. Also any good books or sites where I could get some starting point on the material to present ?
