For each scene, cut the character and other elements up into layers. Place the pivot points where they would match the joints on the body (ie: elbow, knee, neck area for the head.)

Going through each scene, move the parts of the character and set up keyframes where each movement would land at a certain time. Flash will add in the movements needed between each keyframe. You can change the speed of the movements between the keyframes by using the EASE IN or EASE OUT settings.

Write out “To Do Lists” to check off on as you go through the animation. Review your work and keep tweaking until you (or the client) is satisfied!

If you are considering becoming an Animator, it’s a great practice to make up random 5-10 second long animations. When I was in school, the teachers asked the students to constantly create short stories. Some students found it difficult to keep their stories short and simple, receiving failing grades in some cases because they got too lost in their stories.

Tips on creating short stories:

Starting the story as close to the end as you can.
Including at last one character the viewer can strongly identify with – either negatively or positively.
Reveal character motivation or traits essential to the story.
Ensuring that each character included needs something to do – even if the action was simply deliver a newspaper.
Metaphors are a great tool – but keep the related to everyday life – or you will lose your audience. In animation, you can be very creative in how you express your point of view in the story. You can be very literal or “trippy” depending on who your audience is.
Know your basic audience and avoid alienating them. Appealing to what people can relate to is an important foundation if you want people to watch your videos.
Keep a notebook at all times! A quick note now can be a great story tomorrow.
Have fun with it! If you are not having fun, take a nap. Ideas have to marinate and evolve within you, so relax, have fun and let them flow.

Enjoy!
