The workshop by Ryan Cole for Differing Accents conference will cover the history of motion design, some animation basics and later on I'll introduce you to Aftereffects, the industry standard for 2D animation and motion graphics.
Please bring the following supplies for the workshop:
A laptop (if you have one) with Aftereffects installed and ready to go
A digital camera or web cam
Any previously created illustrations or designs you'd like to animate (particularly the type conference ID's)
