Starting off today, I did two simple flash exercises to get my feet wet and created a fake bar banner along with a green alien who runs around the screen. I took snap shots of the finished products but you can't see the animation since it is just a picture.
After finishing the two simple exercises i realized flash is similar to other web design programs i use like Photoshop and Dreamweaver. By all means flash isn't exactly the same as those programs but i thought it was similar enough for me to understand how to use it. Convincing myself flash is comparable, i attempted to create a gallery for the One Night Stand web series. Assuming I'd get a good head start with designing the beginning of the gallery; however, i actually got close to finished with it (may add more photos later with a scrolling sidebar). I attached photos below of what the gallery looks like; although, you can't see what it actually does. When you hover over a picture with your mouse a blue line appears on the top letting you know you can click the picture. Once you click the photo you'll hear a camera sound and the picture fades in from white like the photo was just being taken. I haven't designed the background of the site, as of right now it is just white with no other creation besides the photo gallery.
