The new book Flash MX — Design for T.V. and Video focuses on the evolution of Macromedia’s Flash and highlights some of the companies that have pushed the technology beyond simple animation for internet applications to the sophisticated Flash MX currently being used in series television.
Written by Janet Galore and Todd Kelsey, the book is available in paperback and contains 278 pages of tutorial information for both beginners and Flash experts looking to transfer their skills to broadcast TV. Galore pioneered the photosurrealistic style of Honkworm Int’l's FishBar series, which became the first Flash animation to appear on TV when it ran on MTV’s Cartoon Sushi in 1998.
Atomic Cartoons has announced that it is featured prominently as a leader in high-end Flash production for both Internet and television applications, and for applying the fundamentals and techniques of traditional animation to Flash. The book features color stills from the company’s Flash portfolio, which includes Dog in a Box with 2 Wheels, Dirty Lil’ Baster and Atomic Betty, as well as animation service work for hit shows such as Mondo Media’s Thugs on Film.
Flash MX — Design for T.V. and Video, is published by Wiley Publishing (www.wiley.com/compbooks) and retails for $49.99.
