I chose a soccer theme when designing this project including an interactive soccer field connected to the MaKey MaKey, and 3 soccer based animations to attribute. My map has 3 points of interest, one point located on the corner of the field, one located roughly 20 “yards” away from the goal, and one off to the right in the middle of the field. The first two points activate animations based off of where the points are and what would happen in a game at those locations. The third point I simply used as a ground for easier access. I found my audio tracks from the class materials websites and edited everything using camtasia studio. Ba ba americano!
Creating the animations for this project was a tedious process in photoshop, recoloring every frame from scratch. I chose the method of uploading a video into photoshop from youtube and then creating a transparant video layer to sketch over the viedo with, creating my own simple animation. I found it to be much more time consuming than I thought, but worth it in the end. I uploaded clips from FIFA 13 and used those as models when creating my animations. Fun Fact: The person juggling is modeled after Neymar; the freekick was modeled after Ronaldo, and the corner kick was modeled after Rooney.
