The Making of: Hand Coloured Photoshop Animation Frames

By Paula Briggs

This resource shares the making of a small clip from the How To Be A Creative Producer animation Project. See this clip in its final context in Part 2 Scene 5 Creativity Hacks.

In this scene, Alex, one of the teenage #BeACreativeProducer team members, developed his digital skills by working across iMovie and Photoshop to extract single frames from a movie, hand colour them in Photoshop, and then import them back into iMovie to complete the animated scene.

We used the technique as a visual to an aural backdrop of the teenagers working collaboratively on their musical composition. The method is fairly simple once a methodology is set, and the technique has lots of potential.
