Discover Enhanced Visual Narratives with Animation!

Earlier this year we had a popular webinar showing you how to advance your story telling with animation but using the time saving method of motion graphics.

Peter von Stackeberg returns to show you new advanced Motion Graphic examples AND we’d love artists in our community to share any motion graphics that they’ve created since the first class.

Missed the first class? Purchase our BUNDLE ticket to get the entry/recording for this session PLUS the recording of the previous webinar and bonus materials.

Software used in this class : Photoshop, OpenShot video editor (free) and Krita (free)

Peter will show you:-

  • The outline of how motion graphics can be used in visual storytelling
  • A reminder of key fundamental motion graphic elements
  • A breakdown of at least four more ADVANCED motion graphic animations.

Community members:-

  • Demonstrate your own motion graphics and show how you created them.
  • Ask any questions on how you might improve the effects.
  • Share a favourite motion graphic (it doesn’t have to be your own) and tell the class about it.
  • Share any sticking points that you’re having on developing motion graphics

About the presenter : Peter von Stackelberg


“Whether it’s with words or images, I love to tell stories. I’ve been a storyteller as far back as I can remember — well before I made journalism my first career.

I studied journalism at Ryerson University (long before it was known as a university) and spent a number of years as an investigative journalist and news photographer. With the emergence of the web in the 1990s, I worked as a web designer, e-commerce developer, and IT project manager. In the early 2000s, I was a professional futurist doing technology forecasting and working as a technology strategist. I also began teaching college classes in strategic management, managing technology and innovation, project management, business communications, systems thinking, and other courses.

Through all of these jobs writing and visual communication remained a core part of the work I did.

I have a B.A. in Journalism from Ryerson University, an M.S. in Studies of the Future from the University of Houston-Clear Lake, and an M.S. in Information Design & Technology from SUNY IT (State University of New York Institute of Technology).
