(New York City) – To familiarize designers with the ease of converting video into animation, HOWdesign.com published Micah Laaker’s "Simplifying Flash Video." Covering the gamut of the entire process, the article clearly outlines the steps necessary to achieve the video’s visual effects.
Laaker.com readers will likely be familiar with Mr. Laaker’s MF Doom video, which was recently awarded a gold medal at the Industrial Design Society of America’s (IDSA) Industrial Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) in Boston. (Mr. Laaker appeared before the organization in August at the Berkelee Performance Center to receive the award from Business Week and IDSA.)
Not only did HOWdesign.com find the video worth investigating, Fast Company recently placed the video at a number 5 ranking amongst the hundreds of submissions to the IDEA competition in their 10 Prize-Winning Products article.
Lastly, Step-by-Step, the venerable graphic arts publishing house instrumental in sharing procedures, features an interview with Mr. Laaker amidst a review of the Doom animation process in their September SBS Digital Design issue, available on newstands now.
