In 2014, I was selected to enter a famous elective course called "Presentation and Communication Skills" at National Taiwan University, taught by Professor Yeh Ping-cheng(Benson). As improving our skills on designing slides on PowerPoint, we were asked to finish an animation through PowerPoint. We were able to copy or reproduce animations from any cartoons or films we loved. I chose the most famous part of the Disney film “Frozen” that Elsa sang the song “ Let it go”. All of my classmates avoided reproducing this scene because it contained lots of turning and rotating animation, which was very difficult to make through PowerPoint.
I spent 2 weeks working on the project, and I overcome the challenge that the movement of Elsa is very complicated. I broke down the animation into slow motions and little parts, and then I used Illustrator to rebuild every single scene. After that, I put every part of the animation through POWER POINT animations. In the end, I made over 100+ slides and over 300 steps of animation to build the video.
My video got over 100 shares on Facebook at that time. After 3 years, it still rocks on YOUTUBE and hit over 10 million views.
