Intro to scrollytelling
Interested in scrollytelling? You know, those web pages that animate as you scroll like the New York Times’ [Snow Fall piece](https://nyti.ms/2QoUIiR), or this [visual introduction to machine learning](https://bit.ly/35rNHlE). Interactive articles are increasingly common among online publications, and often end up being their most popular (and enjoyable!) pieces.
It turns out, you only need a few tools to make powerful, interactive scrollytelling pieces! In this talk, I’ll introduce you to a few of those tools—Lottie, Scrollama, and native CSS—and show you how to use them with React. I’ll walk through the process of creating a demo storytelling piece; and by the end, you’ll know how to:
1) trigger animations when the user scrolls to a certain point on the page.
2) create scrollbound animations that move with the scrollbar.
3) render After Effects animations directly on the web.
You’ll leave with a list of inspiring examples and resources to build a scrollytelling piece of your own!
