CartoonSmart Flash Tutorials
With most major animation schools fully entrenched in Maya this or traditional that, Flash animation hasn’t been getting the educational support it deserves. It’s to the point where my good friends at Six Point Harness Studios have taken it upon themselves to go teach classes at local universities themselves for no money. The way they see it, their next wave of employees isn’t going to just appear out of thin air, sooooo….
Anywhoo, this leads me to the topic of tutorials. Last night I stumbled onto the CartoonSmart website, a cleverly designed, entertaining, all-Flash site with the solitary goal of bringing Flash knowledge to the unwashed masses. Justin Dyke, who also publishes a clever comic strip titled The Mows, narrates several Quicktime tutorials that walk Flashers through the basics, and even some not-so-basics. I followed him through one of his freebies he offers on his site, and I was impressed. Justin – keep up the good work. You’re doing us a big favor.
