There are links to several on youtube in the directions.

The best behaved class will get 10 points bonus participation points- the sub knows this and will write down how you guys do. Be good!

I will get Ex 3 Posted before tomorrow, if it's not posted already. I will be back as soon as I can. So far just 1st period's grades are updated, I will continued grading whenever I have the time. Please be well behaved for the sub. If 1st period wants to use a stylus, Abbie W can be in responsible.

2nd/3rd for Digital Arts, continue working on Ex 1A Hour of code. You may also do the two other tutorials on javascript and coding, it's the same link from 1A. Ex 1B has you use google search to effectively find what you are looking for. For google searches, I would start with this page:

As you are watching the movie, make sure you are taking notes and filling out the questions. The questions are all on school loop. Once you have completed the film review, then continue work on the Music Video Pre-production. Get the script, storyboard, and lyrics ready to go. Start brainstorming where you are going to shoot, what type of video you are going to go, and start writing everything down.

Stories in the News: Surviving College Admission Madness.

How to Survive the College Admissions Madness

MARCH 13, 2015

HERE we go again. At Harvard, Emory, Bucknell and other schools around the country, there have been record numbers of applicants yearning for an elite degree. They’ll get word in the next few weeks. Most will be turned down.

All should hear and heed the stories of Peter Hart and Jenna Leahy.

Peter didn’t try for the Ivy League. That wasn’t the kind of student he’d been at New Trier High School, in an affluent Chicago suburb. Most of its graduating seniors go on to higher education, and most know, from where they stand among their peers, what sort of college they can hope to attend. A friend of Peter’s was ranked near the summit of their class; she set her sights on Yale — and ended up there. Peter was ranked in the top third, and aimed for the University of Michigan or maybe the special undergraduate business school at the University of Illinois.

Both rejected him.

You are voting on the form below.

 ANIMATION (Option 1).  

Students learn how to create Flash Animated Cartoons using Flash CS6. The cartoons are similar to Southpark. Artwork is created on the computer, students are most successful that love to draw or create on the computer. Students will create animations, titles, special effects, and easy video games.

Inside Ryse: XBox One's new standard for gaming

posted Nov 25, 2013, 11:35 AM by j sheridan

Ahead of the launch of Microsoft's Xbox One, Sophie Curtis meets Andy Serkis to find out how performance capture is transforming video games

12:06PM GMT 21 Nov 2013


When Peter Jackson's fantasy epic The Lord of the Rings hit cinemas in 2001, it set a new standard for motion-capture quality in film, with actor Andy Serkis and an army of artists and computer-generated image (CGI) modellers breathing photo-realistic life into the ‘small, slimy creature’ known as Gollum.

Since then, motion capture (or 'mocap') – the process of recording real-world facial expressions or body movements for the purposes of realistically animating computer-generated models – has been adopted, enhanced and perfected by the film industry to create extraordinary but believable characters that simply could not be achieved any other way.

With a new generation of gaming consoles hitting the shelves this Christmas, it is no longer just the film industry that is set to benefit from advances in this technology. Thanks to significant increases in processing power in both the Xbox One and Playstation 4, games developers are now able to create cinematic worlds that look like real life, with characters that feel more human than ever.

Motion capture has been used in gaming since the mid-nineties, but developers have always struggled to convey detailed facial expressions and true emotion in their characters. However, by borrowing advanced 'performance capture' techniques refined for Hollywood – which incorporate subtle facial expressions – games studios are now able to achieve incredibly detailed animation that is akin to film.

Some of the UK’s most innovative and creative storytellers are being recruited to bring new depth and characterisation to video games, and Andy Serkis is one of a growing number of film and TV stars – including Willem Dafoe and Elllen Page – who are crossing over into the video game industry.

Following a string of acclaimed performance capture film roles – including King Kong in the eponymous 2005 film, Caesar in Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) and Captain Haddock in The Adventures of Tintin (2011) – Serkis has co-founded a creative digital studio called The Imaginarium, dedicated to the creation of believable, emotionally engaging digital characters using performance capture technology.

Over the last year, The Imaginarium has been shooting a new title calledRyse: Son of Rome, which is is an action-adventure video game developed by Crytek and published by Microsoft Studios as an Xbox One exclusive launch title. The game tells the story of Marius Titus, a young Roman soldier who witnesses the murder of his family at the hands of barbarian bandits, then travels with the Roman army to Britannia to seek revenge.

While stunt men are used to capture the characters' body movements, stage actors provide their facial expressions through performance capture. This involves creating a rig – or puppet – of each actor's face, that can is capable of making any expression that the actor can make.

During a five-hour session, around 120 scans are taken of the actor's face as he or she pulls a range of different expressions. Markings on the actor's face are used to record not only the bone structure and movement of the joints in the face, but also more subtle details like how how the skin moves over the bones.

This scanning data is passed on to a technical sculptor, who uses it to create a 3D model of the face. The model is then tested against all the different expressions and tweaked until it is as close to life as possible. Although the actor will never pull many of these expressions, it is important to make the puppet as versatile as possible, according to Crytek.

The final stage is to bring in the artists, who create a character using the facial rig as a guide. The final character can end up looking very different from the original actor's face, as in the case of Marius, (below), but essentially it moves in exactly the same way, meaning that when the actor speaks his or her lines, the rig will follow precisely.

Chris Evans, technical art director at Crytek, said that one of the key differences between this and earlier examples of performance capture in video games is that everything feels artistically consistent. In the past, it has often looked like a video of a face had been superimposed onto the character's body, whereas Crytek has taken pains to make sure all the different elements fit together.

The desired effect is that gamers move seamlessly between cinematic sequences and gameplay without noticing any difference in the appearance of the characters.

“The ability to blend into a scene like that, where the player still has his hands on the controller, and then you relinquish the gameplay back and they don't know if they can start playing yet – that's where it feels next-gen,” said Evans.

In some ways, this is only the beginning. Serkis believes that video games have already overtaken film in their use of performance capture technology, and will go on to become one of the primary mediums through which people tell stories in the future.

"Performance capture is definitely the portal to that, and I think there will be a time in the not too distant future where it’s not so much about consoles, it will be much more interactive, screens will be a thing of the past, we’ll be living amongst 3D holography images – it will be much more like an avatar experience," he said.
