This Fall, we’ve invited New York City-based artists, illustrators, and animators to be Explain Everything Artists-in-Residence. They come into our NYC office and invite us into their creative process as they engage with our tools for the very first time. Our September Artist in Residence was Annie Gugliotta (http://anniegugliotta.net).
Here is what Annie had to say about her experience:
As an artist/animator who is more traditional as far as the mediums I use, I found the Explain Everything app easy and fun to animate with on an iPad. I enjoyed creating characters using the various shape tools integrated into the program, as well as bringing in outside images from the internet. Perhaps the most exciting thing for me was the ability to import multiple videos to one scene to make an animated collage – something I’ve never really done before. I’d like to keep playing with the ability to keep adding layers upon layers within the app to see what I can make.
