A flash version of the asteroid chase sequence from Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.
The asteroid chase sequence is one of my favorite scenes in any film, and I had wanted to make some version of it since I first started using Flash. Originally this was going to spoof it, but as I went on and kept shelving and unshelving it, I realized I loved the scene too much to alter it significantly. It's probably 90-95% shot-for-shot.
This project has existed in one form or another for over 4 years; the oldest animated sequence in was first worked on on June 9, 2005. This has existed on four versions of Flash. After being shelved and changed many, many times, I worked up all my skills enough to draw and animate characters, flying ships, backgrounds, and the like.
The animation doesn't use any of CS4's newer features. Tweens are classic tweens and classic motion guides, symbols inside symbols, custom ease graph, etc.
I make come back later and fix Flash's audio de-syncing issue; I don't think it's too noticeable...unless you read this and are now seeing it. Oh well.
