Members attending the Creativity SIG are interested in obtaining more joy from using apps on their Macs or iPad such as Pages, Numbers and Keynote. The emphasis is on using our devices in a creative way. The Creativity SIG currently meets at 10am during each Saturday Main Meeting. For further details see Events under Quick Links.
Procreate has introduced new Beginners Series for those starting out with Procreate and the iPad.
An excellent place to start exploring art and animation using an iPad and Apple Pencil. Getting started with anything new is challenging, but this step-by-step walk-through makes learning easy and fun.
It is currently a free four-part video series. I have just completed working through the 2nd video and have enjoyed learning something new at each step. If you follow along while shown the various steps involved, completing the four lessons will leave you with three unique artworks and one animation you will be proud to show to your friends.
I am delighted to welcome Chris McQuillen to our SIG meeting on Saturday to show some of the creative ways photos, videos, and recorded sound can be put together to create compelling movies.
If you thought movie-making involved months of planning and creating a script, deciding on location and cast, working out a budget and schedule, photographing and recording sound, editing and adjusting the video, and distribution then you will be surprised to learn that many of these ‘rules’ can be thrown away.
On Saturday you will see what can be achieved, have a chance you ask questions to assist your own endeavours, and go away knowing you can do this. Start as small as you like but START.
