    FYI, I've corrected the spelling of Ryan's last name in the thread topic.

    Good job, Ryan! Indeed, it is a wonderful tutorial - worthy of recognition. I've referred several people to it myself.

    You know, I almost forgot to mention:

    The icing? The tutorial itself plugs HTF. Ah, in a good way. You know what I mean. Presumably.

    Great job on this site, Ryan! You know what, though? I wonder if this already-impressive tutorial would have an even greater impact if the voiceover were, well, more seductive. Not that there's anything wrong with it now, but there's certainly a subtle mismatch in both tone and production value between the audio content and the (excellent) graphic presentation that runs alongside it.

    How's your wife's voice? Any other friends or acquaintances who could try their hand at recording the text? It might be interesting to see what a different reader could bring to the table.

    Links anyone? Is this the old tutorial or has Ryan updated with a new one?

    It's the same. Somewhere on my computer I have the .exe file of it. I will have to agree that John's idea for a seductive voice would be appealing.

    Who's Joao Solimeo from Brazil? Is he a member here? We should thank him for recommending the tutorial to Ebert.

    Perhaps Vickie would like to be the seductive voice? I remember she said guys were attracted to her when she was on the radio.

    Wow.
    First of all, let me say this: Wow! [​IMG]
    I can't believe Roger Ebert mentioned my tutorial. I just heard about it today, when a reader from the Minneapolis Star-Tribune emailed me with a few questions. Needless to say, my site has been busy. I've been getting ~50 hits an hour or so during peak times today.
    Of course, now that I know this was released earlier than today, I'll have to check the last week's worth of logs and see what's been going on.
    Regarding the voice - Yes, I agree. Audio quality on this was horrible. Nevermind the fact that I had a cold when I recorded it. To be honest, I never expected this to get the kind of publicity it does. I wrote it because I wanted to learn Flash -- this was my first project -- and I figured an OAR/WS tutorial would be a neat idea. I posted it here because it turned out fairly well, and everyone loved it.
    I started work on a second tutorial, intended to be more accurate (there are some mistakes in the original) and encompass a wide variety of cinema related subjects. I have a lot of great feedback from people here regarding information to put into this second tutorial, but I have not found the time to actually complete it. Maybe I should step up to the plate and get it done now.

    Excellent commendation on an excellent tutorial - it's short, to the point, and ultimately very effective.

    This attention would also lead one to believe that Ebert may also be a visitor to HTF, given Ryan's reference to the Software Forum/HTF.

    Yep great work Ryan. I bookmarked your site quite some time ago and everyone that comes to my home gets the OAR treatment. They walk away better educated and I walk away knowing I did a good deed.
    Thanks!!!!!
