All of my clients are asking for this style of animation/screen casting (SFW):
It's the manic screen twisting animation with text and simple images displayed over basic color backgrounds.
I am moderately skilled in After Effects (and own the suite) so I'd love to accommodate them, but I am more accustomed to creating explosions, light sabers and monsters than this kind of stuff. I would like to know if anyone knows of specific online classes or easy to follow tutorials for this specific style/type of animation? I've found many After Effects tutorials, but I'm looking for something specifically geared to creating a video similar to the one posted above.
I am happily prepared to pay for these as I really need to be somewhat proficient in this by early 2014.
Thanks a million!

Can I Convert Video Footage to Animation? We are making a video documentary about college students and their attitudes towards dating and sex. Much of the documentary involves one interviewer interviewing different people on the same set. As you might guess, many of the potential subjects are reluctant to speak candidly onscreen, BUT, most of them will consent to their voices being used…I am wondering if there is some not-crazily-expensive way to take a video interview and, using some kind of software, animate it, turning the interviewer and subject into animated avatars. The animation does not have to be super super high quality—a fairly simple avatar for each of the people onscreen will do…We have a lot of technical and post-production people on the crew, so someone involved probably has access to almost any software program available…Any help—especially specific programs or plug-ins—would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

My wife is the director of an after school program that serves low income minority youth in grades 3 through 12. She is looking for practical tips to share with direct service staff around positive support of youth, program structures that work, behavior management, and incentives. What resources might you recommend (web or print)? What suggestions do you have as to what's successful or ways to assist in training and supporting staff within programming. Thanks.

I'm taking amoxicillin for a UTI and I'm on birth control pills. I had unprotected sex. From what I understand, antibiotics could make birth control pills less effective. Will the amoxicillin affect the morning after pill also? I'm uninsured so I'm turning here for help.

I just bought a charger for my cellphone at Target. It's not the special manufacturer's brand, but an after market one that costs half of what the Sprint store chargers cost. When I plugged it into the wall, it started making a high pitched noise. I haven't plugged the other end of the charger into my phone for fear of ruining it. Is this normal? Is my charger bad? Thanks.

I have recently quit smoking and am on the road to recovery.
I am looking into options into cleansing programs. I know the years of smoking has
probably mucked up my system with many poisons and has reeked havoc on my lungs n such.
I want to hear from Me-Fis regarding any programs or treatments they know regarding any de-toxing I could be doing.

We have a computer training class and would like to have a fresh computer after every reboot - and need a method/utility to automatically refresh the PC from an image. I have two questions: How can this be done, and how can we prevent a re-image in case the class is longer than a day. Perhaps a menu with an option that defaults to re-image?
