As part of FRC Robotics Team 846, we are tasked each year to create a 40 second safety animation.
"Your mission, and failure is NOT an option, is to identify one or more potential risks to safety, including hand injuries, that you may encounter during your trip into Deep Space. Demonstrate practical and innovative solutions to mitigate these risks and ensure the achievement of your goals."
To create this, I directed a 7 week animation workshop to teach rookies and after working together on it for a month, it has all come together. Completely high school student-designed, composed, sung, and animated, we used high-level tools such as Autodesk Maya, After Effects, and Audacity.
