(June 27, 2007--OJAI, Calif.--BUSINESS WIRE) The Flashforward Conference and Film Festival, taking place September 19–21 in Boston, announced their full speaker lineup and complete schedule today with a new animation on its home page, created by Plug-in Media, called 'Vortex of the Damned.'
The banner, an homage to '50s B-movie horror graphics, showcases all the speakers and sessions taking place at the conference. The speakers at Flashforward2007 cover everything Flash-related for users of Flash, Flex™, ActionScript and AIR (previously Apollo). Attendees will learn how Flash integrates with other Adobe applications to create Flash video, rich internet applications in and out of the browser, animation, audio, games, and more.
“We love to celebrate the talents of the Flash community through our home page Flash banner, and the Plug-in Media team shows off what can be done with a little humor, ingenuity, and mad talent! It’s horrifying!” laughed Lynda Weinman, CEO lynda.com events, Inc. “This year’s conference is a must-attend event. We’ve lined up speakers to cover all aspects of Flash CS3, including the new integration and workflow features that highlight the first new release of Flash under Adobe’s care. Our speakers will also explore the Flash frontiers in video, games, mobile, and desktop applications.”
Attendees can dig deep into the schedule, speakers, and content before they ever get to the Boston Marriott Copley Place for Flashforward. Content can be explored by speaker name, session title, and through an interactive schedule grid.
