jbum at USC

I’ll be giving a free lecture-workshop at USC tonight. Most likely I will
be demonstrating how to make a Karl Marx toy in Flash, but I may change my mind.

Come by and say hi!

Here’s the official blurb:

Interactive Art & Toys in Flash
Tuesday, Feb. 28
7:30-9:30 @ (USC Campus) SAL 127

Jim Bumgardner, a software technologist, teacher and devotee of recreational programming, will be coming to USC to give a lecture-workshop on using Macromedia Flash to create digital motion graphics and toys.

For examples of his work, check out

Posters of Jim’s famous Flickr collages will be given away throughout the night!

Some basic experience with Flash is expected. If you are new to Flash and would like to attend, please email to arrange a last-minute tutorial.

    Hi Jim!

    Thank you for the great workshop tonight. I really enjoyed it. I love action scripting! I will take your book recommendations and start reading up on it. Too bad we didn’t have much time to go into simulations, I would have loved to see how I could use it for my research. But your source will definitely help since I got some ideas from how you work tonight.

    Thanks again! You’re awesome. :)
