Animation in Flash: ACA Offers Free Online Lecture April 26

Upcoming Saturday lecture features insights from acclaimed storyboard artist Sam Hood.

Online art school Art Connection Academy is hosting a free public lecture led by highly acclaimed storyboard artist Sam Hood. The lecture is scheduled for Saturday, April 26, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. CT. Space is limited, so attendance will be on a first-come, first-served basis on the day of the lecture. Sign up here.

During this lecture, Sam Hood will demonstrate the time saving power of animating in Flash while keeping the hand drawn appeal of traditional 2D animation. Sam will also demonstrate how traditional animators use Flash -- focusing on learning workflows that top working professionals consider the staples of solid Flash Animation.

The lecture will also focus on a basic hand drawn workflow -- helping even those planning on animating mostly with puppeting to be expressive and maintain a natural organic feel to their animation.

He has worked with some of the top animation studios in the United States, including Wildbrain, Blue Sky Studios, Laika, Leapfrog, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network.
