In Mrs. LoRusso’s 7th grade STEM class, students have completed their final animation projects using Adobe Animate
The class has been studying animation since the beginning of the school year. The videos could be about anything they wanted, but they did have to meet the following criteria to get a max of 20 points:
- At least 2 scenes.
- At least 10 seconds long.
- Draw a detailed scene in 2 point perspective.
- Add 6 different animations, must include a secondary animation.
- All objects are taken to the proper vanishing point neatly. All parallel lines are correct. Any repetitive objects are correctly calculated.
- You have not hurried through the coloring/shading of this work of art. Correct shading is evident according to light source.
- Excellent use of drawing area. Good organization, strong focal point and accents. Balanced and no information is omitted.
- All layers are clearly labeled and organized.
- Project is very neat. All selections in Animate are clean. There are no strands/strokes floating around. No parts disconnect and/or out of place. Project moves smooth and clean with little to no jumping.
- Project is fluid and coherent from start to finish. Has a good storyline that ties everything together.
- Animator created something new and personally creative. Project has its own look and feel and completely stands out in comparison to others.
You can view all of the projects on SmugMug. Below are a few standout projects.
