​I keep getting an error message:

Scene 1, Layer 'Actions', Frame 1, Line 11061: Call to a possibly undefined method addEventListener through a reference with static type Class.

Could anyone help. My code looks just like the video.

An excellent tutorial with very clear easy to follow instructions. Getting students to substitute their own graphic may increase their enthusiasm.

I found this tutorial educational. It shows how to break a photo into movie clip symbols to use with ActionScript.
