  • Hand lettering

    欧洲杯开户Hand lettering has seen a major resurgence in recent years, despite the fact that it’s easier than ever to create your own font, including converting your own handwriting into digital type.

  • Music video effects

    Though it's clear that music videos are a marriage of music and moving images, it may not be obvious to some that they also often rely on post-production effects to increase the viewer's engagement. This short course explores how video manipulation programs, such as Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects, can be used to create and employ a visual style that points towards the surreal. The music video foundations of cutting-on-the-beat and beats within shots themselves are also explained.

    This course assumes some basic knowledge of Adobe Premiere Pro, and a willingness to learn digital compositing software in Adobe After Effects.
