When two garbage trucks collide…

I made my first Flash video! I created all the vector art in Illustrator, and then animated it in Flash. Once finished, I exported the movie and used Quicktime to add an audio track (which was edited in Audacity).

I originally set out to animate a much longer and complicated story. This quickly proved too challenging as I’m still learning Illustrator and just a newbie at Flash. I ultimately decided to focus on something smaller and more manageable to get a feel for the software. This one originated from a confusing idiom that took on a life of its own.

Thanks to Kelly for the push to use Flash and feedback on the initial drafts. And Patrick for the idea that started it all.
