Photoshop Tool Basics (ft. Pacman)

This is a stop motion animation short I made for animation class in 2017. It’s a photoshop tutorial brought to you by Pacman who fights against the cursor in order not to be photoshoped. I mainly utilized Dragon Frame to shoot the canvas (paper cutouts simulating effects of different photoshop tools) frame by frame stop motion animation and scanned the paper collage Photoshop UI as the workspace. I used Premiere to edit, stabilize and merge Dragon Frame video clips, Photoshop to draw cursors and tool icons, crop out useful items (such as mac close buttons) from photos, and do other photo editing, and After Effects to composite my final animation and add sounds to it.
