Creators Course Curriculum
Students are supported in considering what makes a successful image for them, in terms of subject matter and aesthetics. The course then dives deep into the 2018 versions of Lightroom Classic CC and Photoshop CC for image development and production to enable them to realise their images.
Participants must master both Lightroom and Photoshop CC in order to progress to the next module and are supported in this by the course videos and weekly live instructor Q&A sessions.
Design and Graphics
With Lightroom and Photoshop CC mastered the students must focus on creating digital layouts and graphic designs combining photographs, images, illustrations, logos, and text.
Students will be shown a range of methods and approaches to source and extract existing design materials from the web and PDF's to create commercially useful design materials. Photoshop will then be used to compile, design, layout and precisely documents.
The practical assignment for this module for participants is to produce a series of professional and compelling ad designs for print and online.
Moving Image and Video
With a solid still image production framework in place participants will progress to design and production of moving images and video.
The first assignment requires students to animate their graphics created in the previous module. After Effects CC will be introduced for this purpose and 2D animation and key-framing will be mastered.
Students will be then guided in shooting a series of technically and compositionally resolved video shots using cameras available to them. The footage will then be transcoded, edited, graded and exported using Premiere Pro CC.
The course will also require students to create a moving image sequences using photographic still images. Timelapse will also be introduced.
The outcome of this module is participants will possess a solid understanding of current video formats, codecs and filetypes and will be able to produce video using live action material or design materials.
