Neon Animation: MAKE IT BLINKY

December 17th - December 21st
James Akers, Ranjit Bhatnagar |

In this class, students will learn to make neon that flashes, strobes, blinks, and dims. We will go over what is needed to make neon blinky while using industry animation transformers and learning to give them the signals they crave. Harnessing the capabilities of technology from the iron age to the information age that we live in today, students will learn to subvert industrial solutions with low-cost alternatives. By creating basic synthesizers and ignoring complex mumbo-jumbo by hacking pre-made circuits, the potential for animation is endless. Some previous neon experience is helpful, but not necessary.
