Phillip Kerman Teaches How Flash CanVisually Create Exciting, Interactive Web
"Macromedia is not exaggerating when it says that Flash is the professional standard for producing high-impact Web experiences," said Phillip Kerman. He added, "You only need to visit a few sites that use Flash to understand how compelling it is. Using graphics, animation, sound, and interactivity, Flash can excite, teach, entertain, and provide practical information."
Literally hundreds of millions of users already have the free Flash player (needed to view Flash movies). The fact that Macromedia is continuing to distribute this software so effectively means the potential audience for Flash content is huge, and it continues to grow.
The tools needed to create Flash movies are within your reach. After you purchase Flash, the only investment you need to make is the time needed to learn it. You can even download Flash from www.macromedia.com and use it for 30 days before having to purchase it. Phillip said it is exciting to watch people go from fiddling with Flash to making entertaining movies. Imagine a great musician picking up and learning an instrument in a matter of days. It really is that amazing. If you're motivated, with just a moderate investment of time, you'll feel as though a powerful communication tool has been given to you.
Flash is so unique that sometimes the less experience you have, the better. If you have preconceived ideas about what Flash is, or how you're supposed to use drawing tools, it might be best to try to forget everything and start fresh. Phillip has taught Flash to hundreds of students, and invariably, even those who don't have "fire in their eyes" at first will recognize the power Flash has given them and that they can hone their Flash skills over time. When you can't wait to show others your creations, you'll know you're on your way. Get ready to have some fun.
