TUTORIAL: The Want List intro

This tutorial walks the student through the creation of The Want List intro for the popular web series.

NOTE: The audio is a little jacked, thanks to the built-in microphone and my louder than normal speaking voice when talking to a group of students.

Stephen Schleicher

Stephen Schleicher is one of those guys that has always loved comics but never got into them until really late in life - like high school in the 80s. He just missed the Crisis on Infinite Earths, but has been around for every major crossover since. Stephen knows his way around video and film production having been a director, producer, editor, and motion graphics artist for projects ranging from small promotional pieces for Wachovia all the way up to regional videos for the Division of Emergency Management. As a prolific writer, Stephen began his career writing for the Digital Media Online community of sites, including Digital Producer and Creative Mac covering all aspects of the digital content creation industry. He then moved on to consumer technology, and began the Coolness Roundup podcast. A writing fool, Stephen also freelances for the Sci-Fi Channel's Technology Blog. When not writing, Stephen shares his knowledge as a tenured faculty member at Fort Hays State University. Still longing for the good ol' days, Stephen launched Major Spoilers in July 2006, because he is a glutton for punishment. Favorite Writers: Mark Waid, Geoff Johns, Paul Dini, Adam Beechen, Bill Willingham, Matthew Sturges Favorite Artists: Dan Jurgens, Alex Ross, Adam Hughes, Freddie Williams III

    Hi Steve, enjoyed your site and the great info & freebies you have. I have a question I would like to ask you. If it is not something you have time for, I understand so just ignore it.
    I’m not very experienced using AE & PS but have been searching for a tutorial on taking a static photo background of a long road and having it appear as if one is slowly traveling up the road. Would greatly appreciate if you could advise me if AE and/or PS are best for doing this, and would I need any special plugins. I am currently looking at image loung tunnel effect to see if it woul help. My plan is to use it as a DVD or HD menu background. Thanks

    If it is a still image, do it in Adobe Photoshop. If you are wanting motion, then AE and greenscreen are probably what you will want to do.
