Final Project Proposal

The most helpful tool aspiring online artists have are tutorials. On the internet, the greatest resources for artistic lessons and ideas come from these free websites that offer digitally “hands-on” guides to create masterpieces. The trouble is that there are very few databases and collections of these tutorials so that artists of various disciplines can scroll through different lessons and take away what they need. Therefore, for my final project, I would like to design a website that links artists to their specific communities and those tutorials. The exigence is simple: many artists need guides, but few can discover the resources they need to access them. My site will link artists to pages and didactic materials that are relevant to their discipline. In this way, I will be contributing to the discourse within my community and expanding on the hyperreality of internet-based teaching materials. My site will be divided into the following sections and pages:

  • Filmmakers, with tutorials relevant to:
    • Visual effects
    • Cinematography
    • Editing
    • Screenwriting
    • Sound design
  • Animators, with tutorials relevant to:
    • Sketching
    • Sequencing/animating
    • Cartooning
    • Drawing
    • 3D animation
  • Graphic Design
  • Game Design

These particular communities are the most relevant to my focus, so I will emphasize tutorials that apply to them. I will offer brief but informative descriptions of each link and what it teaches, as well as include styles of teaching that are appropriate to each field (ie YouTube videos for filmmakers, Steam tutorials for game designers, etc). With this, I hope to offer a tool that will enable online artists to pursue their passion and explore their interests in a user-friendly, well-designed web environment.
