"Chris Jackson has a remarkable talent for explaining complicated visual concepts so that anyone can easily digest and incorporate them into their daily workflow. Flash Cinematic Techniques is yet another of Chris' books I recommend keeping within arm's reach for that daily dose of knowledge and inspiration." --Chris Georgenes, Art & Animation Director, Mudbubble, LLC

"Chris Jackson's excellent new Flash primer does a great job of patiently focusing on important design principles and the effective methods of storytelling as they apply to the medium. Using a great number of illustrations and examples, Jackson discusses various ways to improve a project's look and structure as well as incorporating virtual camera movements, simulated 3D spaces, lighting techniques, character animation and interactivity. If you get heart palpitations each time you think about taking your toon idea from paper to pixel to vectors, Jackson is the man who can calmly take you out of your tech nightmare."--Animation Magazine
