For our 'Live at 5' project, working with Broadcasting, I made a animated sun and a rugby player: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8MkXmhM2EE
The rugby player was for the sports table results and the sun was for a weather map. Unfortunately, Broadcasting chose not to use my rugby player sequence. I made him from tracing over different moving sections of him in photoshop (i.e. leg, arm, head) then importing them all as individual items to the library in flash and animating them.
