Photo montage in Adobe After Effects are a breeze to execute once you have gotten a good grasp on this complex software. After spending sometime learning the program, students created projects in my 2010-2011 computer class at ISC. This assignment was part of our unit on Adobe After Effects. These are some of the best works realized by my students:
Stephanie created a photo montage about fashion.
Liz created a photo montage about the good old days of cartoons: “When cartoons were better”.
And Devin created a photo montage about Aruba
What is the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a unique achievement of collaboration between nations. It was adopted and proclaimed by the General Assembly of the United Nations On December 10, 1948. In many ways, it is one of the pillar of the United Nations which was founded 3 years before, at the end of the second World War in 1945.
Under Mrs Eleanor Roosevelt’s direction (the wife of American President Franklin Roosevelt), the Human Rights Commission wrote this special document. It declares the rights that everyone in the entire world should have. Today there are 192 member states of the UN, all of whom have signed on in agreement with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
You can find the full text of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights from the UN website.
