Interactive Web Animation
Interactive web animation is more than button pressing and slider dragging - it's a multi-headed approach to animation design that encompasses the UI elements we use to operate and control them, the tools we use to design and create them, the data we can use to generate random, contextual or unique animations, the ways we can design animations that are easier for our clients and audience to control and the combination of tools at our disposal to help us create small and vibrant animations that will deliver the message in style.
Chris designs interactive animated SVG projects for fun and for cash and in his talk he deconstructs and shares his secrets and processes, exploring the tools he makes and uses including the After Effects SVG exporter Bodymovin and the GreenSock Animation Platform.
The importance of randomness, responsive LEGO, eggs with legs and other interactive treats are on the menu so make sure you're hungry.
