Well, here I am, halfway through 2009 and, as it happens, also half way through my course.
I can scarcely believe how quickly it has gone, I guess when one is as busy as I have been it can be expected that the time would pass in a blur. I can certainly see the results of all that concentrated effort in the pile of completed assignments, the screeds of paper read and notated, the results posted on Moodle and all in all, it has been very satisfactory.
I have one final assessment that I am going into college tomorrow to present it to my lecturers but I thought that you might to have a look at it first!!! It’s a flash animation, and contrary to previous gif animations I’ve done for you, this one is a little bit higher end. It’s the first part of what will be a two part project, the 2nd half will be presented at the end of the year, and when it is finished it will be a 2009 Advent Calendar you can play along with at home!!!
So without further ado, click the image…
Mouse over the image to see which bits are active and then click or hover to play with it. If you get over an audio clip it’s prudent to wait until it’s finished before you go onto the next otherwise you get a bit of sensory overload…
The source design was a cross-stitch I did in 1998, I’ve had it sitting in my finished/unframed drawer for all that time and I’ve wanted to animate it for ages! At lest this way it’s being used even if that’s not in the traditional manner.
Would love to hear what you think in the comments
