After Effects- Techniques to increase your production value

During this CoPVA meeting, we will be participants a hands-on workshop using Photoshop and After Effects to create the 2.5D parallax effect. This is an effective way to bring your photos to life for your video productions. We will be working in one of Denver Open Media’s computer labs and will be following along step by step as John Aden takes through the process of animating the photo.

John Aden: John is the Director of Education at the Open Media Foundation John is also an instructor and teaches many of the classes. He is also a local low-budget filmmaker. John has almost 20 years of experience serving Colorado nonprofits.

Open Media Foundation is a nonprofit that provides communications services, training, and tools to individuals, nonprofits, and governments.

We believe communication drives social values, and we want everyone to have a voice in creating a new media conversation.

Like a PR firm or Ad Agency, we offer top notch video production, web development and branding services, exclusively for nonprofits and governments, with a matching grant that in most cases, covers half the costs. For people who want to do it themselves, we teach classes like studio or field video production, animation and video editing. We also provide high-end equipment, facilities, and web and TV distribution (via DOM, Denver’s Public Access TV Station and Radio Station) so everyone has access to the tools they need to make and spread their own media.
