Valentine's Day rendering - built with ActionScript 3.0

I felt like I needed to get back into Flash / ActionScript - which is what first sparked my interest in interactive media, programming and computational art...

 

This is a 100% ActionScript 3.0 rendering, and an unfinished Valentine's Day card. The hearts are drawn with a similar algorithm to my I Heart Processing experiment. The size, opacity and rotation of individual hearts are controlled using Perlin Noise. The random path the hearts create is achieved through Brownian motion. My main goal was to create a more realistic shadow with more perspective control than the built-in filters allowed.
