Having spent 8 Years at Walt Disneys TV Animation Australia, I gained knowledge of what makes good animation great; timing, volume and continuity. Using my traditional skills has assisted me in creating over 20 educational, lesson intro animations. Concept development, storyboards, scanning and drawn vectors, exported into Flash and placed on the timeline. A musical backdrop was then added by creating music using a Yamaha keyboard, the animation was then synched to the music. Unfortunately in 2005, synching audio within Flash was a known issue and the audio tended to be out due to different computer specs. As I gained more experience I was able to get around such issues.
