My first animation ever is a swf file named "vuou". It's from early 2000s and I still have it because my brother saved it (he knew I would probably delete it later that week hehe). I also used to animate a lot of experimental gifs and throw them on my blog.
Once I asked the person that was my boss a feedback about those gifs and he said I should stick with the formula and shouldnt try to create new things. Although I understand where he was coming from, If you are in that position (boss or teacher or something), please don't be that person. Let people create and try their stuff
