Tuesday, September 1

Digital media Center, 1300 S. Bristol St., Santa Ana
Just north of Edinger at Wilshire Ave.



Terry and Bonnie are at it again this month with a creative solution for a client who wants to showcase the sparkle of their rhinestone-studded make-up cases on the website, selling to professional glamour industry make-up artists. The client found that regular photography didn't capture the "bling" but Terry and Bonnie tackled the challenge, inventing a method combining video, green screen, Premiere Pro and Photoshop. The stylized effects show up in photos and videos on the web - the resulting effect had the client literally squealing with delight!

Reflective surfaces always come with a set of problems to solve (and mirrors compound them!) but you can use these techniques to enhance that beautiful sparkle to show off your client's product and make it zing without a lot of expense.

We'll be revealing the tricks and the DIY green screen, so come for the pizza, stay for the fun, tips 'n' tricks.

Don't forget, we've changed location to the Digital Media Center, Santa Ana. See ya there! Hit the ReadMore to RSVP so we know how much pizza to order!

BLENDER 3D & After FX Animation

Fina Bentley will be demonstrating Blender, a powerful open source 3D program. Open source means it's free!!  Learn Blender and you can create animations to add to your videos. Understanding how to work in 3D space, you can then move on to other 3D animation software more easily. Fina will show what is Blender, where to get it, and what it can do. Architectural to organic shapes, its all fun with freeware.

Terry Syndergaard will show his After Effects animation done using layers of scanned felt pen drawings colored in Photoshop. Deconstructing a "Got Milk" commercial, he will demonstrate how you can animate characters a piece at a time using layers and separate keyframes, rather than having to get it right the first time all at once. Compositions within compositions is a key trick.

Time: 6:30-9:00 p.m.
Location: NOCCCD School of Continuing Education, Room 132
1830 W. Romneya Drive
Anaheim, CA 92801
RSVP on MeetUp
So we know how much PIZZA to order!
