Here’s some snippets from an animated music video I created for a satirical website in back in 2016 – featuring a certain US president – at the time just a candidate. The aim of the site was to make fun out of Trump and keep him out of office, which obviously didn’t work.
The track is based on Katy Perry’s Dark Horse and some of the scenes are lifted from the video, where I’ve painted out Katy, replacing her with various animated characters. I was a fun project – even if it failed 🙂
I created this site with the guys at ChromaAgency and Brothers and Sisters for Sky Sports’ The92 campaign in 2009. It featured an infinitely scrollable wall of photos and comments from users, all filterable and deep-linkable, as well as the obligatory video player, blog and Twitter integration – way ahead of its time for 2009.
I made heavy use of rendering tricks, such as blitting, object pooling and load/render queuing, to keep the thing performant – tricks I later found useful for games and Set Top Box software development. Unfortunately, I can’t show the original site off – the domain renewal had lapsed – nice one Sky 🙁 so here’s a little video about the project:
I just released a new app, a spectrum analyser app. Turn your Android device into an audio spectrum analysis tool and break into safes and combination locks – um, please don’t use it for that 😉 Check it out here.
