Pablo Colapinto: Open Source Motion Graphics
This one-day Master Class meets on Saturday, July 14 from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
How can an artist make video works using completely free Open Source software? This master class will demonstrate how Open Source video programs can be combined in a modular way to produce professional results, improve collaboration among artists and learning among students and teachers. Main topics to be covered include creating 2D motion graphics using Jahshaka and 3D motion graphics with Blender and examples of how to edit video with free software. This will be a hands-on workshop. Students with laptops are encouraged to bring them.
