Through the very simple statement "open/close" students learn the Adobe Flash 9 application. A weekly playful canvas is set up to familiarize students step by step with the program, exploring timeline functions (basic animation principles such as keyframe, interpolation, etc), vector-based design, buttons and movie-clips symbols, and ActionScript. Course after course, students complete various assignments and develop their own "open/close" project, including overlapping timelines working in conjunction with each other, similar to the principle of Russian dolls. This class will also provide a short introduction into html for web-based projects as well as a lesson on web and animation imaging in Photoshop (formats, script, etc), the project being prepared for broadcast over internet.
