      Pick one of the following expressions and apply it to a flour sack:

      sad – happy – proud – shy – anxious – frightened – tired – confused – surprised – excited

      Use the principles we covered in our bouncing ball exercises to give your object personality. NO eyes, mouth, or other facials features allowed – the expression must be conveyed through movement.

      Draw a few key poses  before starting to animate to get familiar with the sack’s design (you can use paper or your favorite drawing app).

      Act out the emotion yourself and take note of your body language – which parts of your body change when you are sad/shy/tired etc? Are your movements fast, slow, tentative, assured etc.?

      As usual, apply the 12 principles of animation.
      Use the following file format: 24fps, width: 1920px | height: 1080px. Save your .fla file and export your animation to Quicktime (review exporting instructions on the week 2 page). Upload your animation to Vimeo or Youtube
      Create a new post on your Open Lab portfolio. Your post should include a link to your Vimeo or Youtube video as well as a short description (reflections on your process, challenges, goals etc. are also welcome), and your key poses drawing.

      This assignment is due next week. Submit the following files on the following platforms:

      • Blackboard: .fla file and a link to your Open Lab post.
      • Open Lab discussion board: Reply to this  discussion post with a link to your Open Lab post

      The grading rubric for this assignment can be found here.
