Hacky Sack by Carolyn Chrisman

“Hacky Sack” by Carolyn Chrisman. I was the instructor for this Flash computer animation class and it was Carolyn’s first attempt at using Flash. As you can obviously tell, she is an incredibly talented animator and I was really impressed with her ability to combine flash and after effects into a fluid and incredibly effective film.
