textflasher

Marc Nimoy Extraordinaire was redoing the website for the UCLA Center for Intercultural Performance (CIP) and he had embedded a small animated gif that had a marquee of text announces and fun blur transitioning. I offered to redo it in Flash 8, and give him a lot of customization features on the html side so the thing could be dynamically driven and lower bandwidth. After pulling a happy all-nighter at Beit T'Shuvah, TextFlasher was born. Thank goodness for cool flash filters. Although I know and love as3, I chose flash 8 because at the time I write this, that's installed by 98.9% of internet users. If you look in the example files, you'll see a large associative array of values and heavy commenting.

Sparkle Labs Web Development

I developed two versions of this company website for my friends from ITP. They would email me still mockups showing me their designs and I would distill that into a real site. The first site in 2006 was a lot of flash, php, and xml. The second site in 2009 is more php and html layouts. Because the original web host did not have mysql, I built a custom CMS which rewrites an xml file to disk and constructs its interface based on the xml structures it finds. It turned out to be great for designing custom data structures.
