Its that time of year again- time when a bunch of us are tasked with putting together some sort of cool, fancy, interesting holiday message all wrapped up in a nifty flash bow. :) I know alot of us would love to see what everyone is doing/has done in the past...
Anyone have some good examples of what they have done in the past? Most of them have been pretty forgettable for me- standard message from the president yada, yada. One really memorable one for me (can't remember which school it was from- if anyone can remember, please let me know or better yet, post the link!) was of skaters on an icy pond. As the user clicked on the image, a little "story" took place- stars came out, Christmas lights on the gazebo were turned on, and towards the end, the campus choir started singing and there was a simple message of holiday greetings from the college. Pretty cool stuff.
Here's a couple of old ones from Providence College. I can only take "credit" for last years. Teaching myself Flash, and ran out of time, so I didn't get to properly animate it using actionscript the way I wanted to...
