Flash 23 - 27th July
Spent last week getting to know flash a little better. I didn't have much confidence with Flash but after being talked through it by the lovely Marc Lewis (that man has so much patience) I was able to do some really fun stuff. I practiced at lip sync, which is something I still have to get the hang of. Avoiding it wont make it go away ha ha. We were also working on some short stings for this years Eisteddfod. We had to come up with an idea for a series of 10 second sketches to be viewed on mobile phones and keep in mind that a new sting can be downloaded every day. I only came up with one idea but played with it and developed my flash skills a little more, learning the benefits of turning frames into symbols and 'Auto Tweening'. It was nice that we each got to work with our own ideas and ease our way into what could be quite a dificult program if you don't know how to use it. So I'm feeling a lot more confident about using the program in the coming weeks on out industry briefs.
