1. The work on this reel was mostly created over the period 2007-present. Most was animated in Flash. I am a traditional animator who works with Flash, not a Flash animator. More recently I've created some courses for Lynda.com, which you can find here: http://www.angryanimator.com/word/about/

  2. How to animate a walk cycle in Flash V8. The principles are applicable to most versions of Flash.

    UPDATE: since creating this tutorial, I've been hired by Lynda.com to author several courses there. You can find links to my Lynda courses on my animation blog angryanimator.com:

    This tutorial uses shape tweening, motion tweening and nested symbols to create a fully animated walk cycle that doesn't look like the usual symbol animation.

    In part 4, we finish off the cycle, making small tweaks to the head and checking for last-minute glitches.
