Our company has an upcoming job that is going to be a high
definition 720p kiosk with joystick controller for interactivity
and high def videos. I'm a flash animator myself so naturally I
want to choose Flash as I'm going to be doing all of the
interactivity, but I'm trying to decide which would really be
better for the situation. I've researched and read many of the
advantages/disadvantages to both programs, but I'm still confused
as to which would be best. Most of the information I read was from
the MX versions of both programs or before 2005. So i'm not sure as
to how correct the information is. I'm aware of flash's current
abilities but not director's. Can anyone help shed some light?

For Kiosk application, I think you should go with director.
Download a trial copy and try. If you ca spare some money, go in
for Multidmedia Zinc for converting your flash files to a kiosk
application. Try it and then decide.
The problem with Director is that Adobe has stopped all
further developments of Director.
