8. Wrap-up: Hangout

Transcript

In this activity, you made an awesome conversation that animated your characters' emotions.

Animation studios need computer scientists like you to bring characters and their environments to life.

Take a look at how one computer scientist at Pixar is helping to create magical new worlds using the power of computer science.

My name is Danielle Feinberg.

I am a Director of Photography for Lighting at Pixar Animation Studios.

To me, light is everything, because if we don't put any lights into our films, all you would get is black.

And depending on the way you put your lights in there, it can look crummy and silly or very computery or very false.

Or it can look like magic and create a world and bring it to life, and that's the thing for me and lighting.

That's my favorite thing.

And there's a point where you look at it, and it goes (gasps).

It's real.

Like it's a real place that you can visit, sort of.

And that's just pure magic.

As you can see, animators use computer science to tell compelling stories.

They also use computer science to create 3-D models in architecture, music, medicine, and science.

Activists create animations to educate the public about issues to care about.

And companies use animation to give users an interactive experience on their websites.

In the next activity, you'll create a program to animate any word or name that a user inputs.

Until next time, have fun coding and animating.
