BRIANA O'NEILL, Graphics Imaging and Interactive Graphics
Briana is attending Labette Community College to obtain a dual Associates Degree in Graphics Imaging and Interactive Graphics. Briana is extremely active in campus activities and athletics. She is a second year volleyball player, Student Ambassador, Graphic Design Club Vice-President, and a member of Phi Theta Kappa, an international honor society for two-year colleges.
As part of a Digital Animation II project, Briana designed the advanced personal lip-syncing character animation below.This process began with sketching the character on paper in multiple poses to include the ten basic phoneme shapes required to simulate expression of speech. The drawings were then scanned and manipulated into a digital form using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. After recording an audio clip of her own voice, the graphics were imported into Adobe Flash where she then synced the animation and facial expressions to the audio clip using both traditional and modern animation techniques.
