I've got the basic mechanism down for my dinky lil flash game I'm making for my game design class. Here's a demo: http://projects.kandolo.com/pirate/demo1.swf
Starting a new animation, should be really awesome :) I'm really digging my idea... I'll probably elaborate on it later once my storyboards are finished.
Also, I was offered to co-write a basic 3d modelling/animation textbook with one of my professors. (!!!) Currently waiting on a publisher to OK it.
Time to get back to work....
