About the lecture
During this lecture, Sam Hood will demonstrate the time saving power of animating in Flash while keeping the hand drawn appeal of traditional 2D animation. Sam will also demonstrate how traditional animators use Flash – focusing on learning workflows that top working professionals consider the staples of solid Flash Animation.
The lecture will also focus on a basic hand drawn workflow – helping even those planning on animating mostly with puppeting to be expressive and maintain a natural organic feel to their animation.
