Visual Effects Class - Green Screen

This semester we are offering several new classes in Animation + Visual Effects - it's part of an effort to make the program more of a generalist approach.  So half the classes will focus on animation, and half will focus on visual effects.  I'm really excited to expand our focus!

So today in Visual Effects I, we brought out for the first time the green screen.  Student Myles Johnson was a good sport and stood in while we talked about lighting for green screen, and about how to match lighting to the shot from the film "Paul" you see in the background.   Over the next week we'll learn how to composite Myles into the shot.

Look I'm On A Wall

Maybe you remember the photo from last year that APSU took to accompany a press release.  Well, a student told me it was up on the wall in the Student Services building on campus, across from the Financial Aid Office.  So I took a trip to see for myself, and yup - apparently Matthias and I make for good stock photo material :)

Animation + Visual Effects Brochure

The official Art+Design Department brochure showed up today...and the image of Matthias and I was utilized once again! I'm happy I was wearing one of my most professorial cardigans that day :)
