This was originaly written for my blog but to celibrate, that I can now make frontpage posts like this, I had to make one right away :P
While working on my latest flash movie, I discovered some tips, which helped me to actually MAKE flash and not just play games or do nothing... So I thought I would share it here, and aid others who are as lazy as I am : )
The first tip is a well known one: Make a storyboard inside the flash movie! I dont think most people make them because they are lazy, but it helps this way too! It dosn't have to be drawings, it can just be text. The idea with this is to give you a better picture of how far you are and how much more is left!
I often have the TV running in the background, when im on my computer. But this will just be an annoyes if you have decided to work on your flash movies. The best thing is to just turn everything off and concentrate on your project! However, Im not really a fan of complete silence, so I often result to the next best thing: Music!
If you are gonna listen to music while working, the best thing you can listen to is something you are not too familiar with... If its songs you love and know well, the outcome might be you on the floor going crazy, table-drumming or air-guitaring = not making flash. (this happens to me allot) :P
My last tip is to tatoo yourself... well, not with needels and ink, but just a simple pen will do! I used my arms to write motivatinal text down on. So you will see it all the time and remind you that you should be working on your movie. As I am writing these tips, you can still see hints of text like: "GET IT DONE!" and "WORK WORK" forexample.
Write your own "Flash tips for lazy people"
To tell the truth I am not only sharing these tips out of the goodness of my heart, but also as another motivater for myself. "Other people might follow these tips, so I have to follow them aswell, to set an example!" - is what im thinking : )
Well, I hope this helped you out...
