COM 115 – Animated GIFs

Tonight in my COM 115 Introduction to Design and Digital Media Environments class at the College of Staten Island, we are learning how to make animated GIFs. Using this original source photo I took in the East Village yesterday, I made these three demo animations in Flash, and then exported them as animated GIFs for the web.

Snapshots Three Ways

This semester, I’ve been working on building my web programming chops in Dynamic Web Development and Flash of Flash at ITP.  Using some of the new skills I’ve picked up, I have created three ways of presenting Snapshots, an online collection of music I have composed this school year at ITP.

Flash Flickr Loader (Work in Progress)

Here is a Flash-based loader of Flickr images that I am working on for my Flash of Flash class.

The UI is still a little buggy and needs refinement, but basically, if you click on a city name, the Flickr loader starts loading the latest photos tagged with the city in Flickr.  I’m thinking about adapting the code to make a simple, clean-looking automatic slideshow program for displaying Flickr images.
