Class Introduction

talk about creating a cinematic poster look. And I know Lisa Kony's in the building. She does this kind of work actually every day. So big fan of her stuff. But I want to say a handful of tricks that I use, um t to achieve a lot of really cool special effects. That's kind of my background. My background is actually I went to art school. An illustration I didn't discover photo shop until my fourth year. And then I realized I much rather prefer to illustrate with light than with paint, because it affords you a lot of different types of effects. The most important part, you can undo a stroke. You do something. I have been doing it for so long that even when I'm at home, if I move a piece of furniture across the room, my first inkling, my first instinct is to hit Command Z to undo that. That's how long that's how that's how you know you've been doing it too long. But I'm really excited about it. So I want to show you guys a we're gonna kind of go through a poster project, and what I will b...

e doing is showing you a lot of really cool tricks. The poster itself is pretty cool, but along the way there's a lot of really cool things that you can pick up and use may be going through a little bit of a three D thing in here. At some point, you get heavy into three D tomorrow, but I really want is gonna get kind of go through the workflow. A lot of people ask me, where do you start? You know, how do you achieve certain effects England got and I always go into a project with kind of a plan. I mean, from doing client work. Obviously there's a plan. They have very specific needs. But things like things like this I go into it with kind of an idea and let things that kind of evolved naturally. If I see an effect or something, an idea hits me, and it just kind of evolved into something else, and it always becomes something I can take to the next project.
