    The transparentcy isn't done in Flash. He just add the Flash look to his square video.
    I did something like it here in the portfolio section: http://www.WrightMediaPro.com
    Don't hold this site against me i was in a hurry to get it done.

    transparentcy

    do you mean have everything, but your subject transparent? Using the site you included as a reference, it appears to have been done on a blue/green screen. They probably shot the subject in front of the screen, then "Keyed out" the screen color to make the background transparent. They also probably used an animated mask to make his hair appear it was getting shorter. One program you can do this in is AfterEffects. Be aware that a blue/green sceen is very tricky to shoot. If you don't light it correctly as well as have your subject well in front of the screen you're going to have major problems later. At any rate the example you gave was done very well.
