    Practical Exercise #2, Creating an animated logo. Due Friday, Oct. 7

    Your job in this exercise will be to create a logo for your animation production company. It will be animated, readable and have your name in it.

  • The animation will start with a two second blank page and the logo will fade in, wipe in, or enter in some way.
  • The logo will be on-screen for 5 seconds and in that five seconds it must move and then pause, so it can be read.
  • The logo will then leave the screen by either fading out, wiping out, flying out or leave in a controlled way.
  • The logo will be turned in to the teacher's commons box with the correct file name and as a .mov file
  • It is not necessary to turn this project in as a .mov file
  • The project name is LOGO.
