Intro: HOW TO MAKE a DRY ERASE ANIMATION
HOW TO MAKE A DRY ERASE ANIMATION
Step 1: SET UP
make sure to set up your dry erase board in a comfortable place with good lighting
Step 2: VIDEO CAMERA
Position the camera on a tripod. Frame the dry erase board so that nothing else can be seen.
Step 3: DRAW
Now draw the image you want to animate
Step 4: PLAY/STOP
Once you are satisfied with your image you can pres play. Only allow the camera to play for a few seconds. Then press stop. If the recording device has a remote, use it as to not disrupt the composition. This process can also be done with a digital camera if you have access to video editing software.
Step 5: RE-DRAW
now erase the section of the image that you want to move. Re-draw the image in the next sequential step of the particular movement. Repeat step 4 and continue the process. Once the drawing process is complete, you may rewind the tape and enjoy the animation as is, or, if you have access to editing software you may adjust the flow of the movement by making more even edits. Editing software also allows you to add a sound track and effects.
