Video Game Classes

Many students are familiar with Flash games found on gaming websites and now they have an opportunity to learn just how those games are created! Using Flash animation skills and employing a variety of Actionscript coding techniques, students can create a game of their own or a game using Small Factory characters.

Session 1: One week of classes, July 5 - 9, 2010, 10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

Instructor: Laura Gesin always enjoyed board games as a child. When she was in middle school, Atari released Pong and she was hooked on video games! Space Invaders and Missile Command soon took up most of Laura’s time, and she admits her grades may have suffered in college due to Asteroids. After earning an English degree, she worked in marketing for almost a decade before going back to school to pursue a career in computer programming. She spent some time in corporate America but took advantage of the internet boom of the 90s to take hers skills online. There she discovered the world of online gaming and it wasn’t long before she learned Flash and was creating her own games. When the internet bubble burst, Laura turned to teaching. At Communications High School in Wall, NJ, she’s taught everything from Web Design to Game Programming in Flash, and now she’s bringing her expertise and love of gaming to Small Factory Productions!

To Register, please contact the instructor at lgesin@lauragesin.net.
