Frustrated that you can’t play all those cool Flash games from your mobile device? Now you can…
An endless driving experience through LA.
I created the interactive video site for this campaign back in 2008, Night-Driving by Golf, for DDB London. It was shot in LA by Noam Murro. The voiceover is Under Milkwood by Dylan Thomas, narrated by Richard Burton; the music is by Cliff Martinez, which you may recognise from the Solaris soundtrack. Continue reading Golf Night-Driving
Just looking through some old work and found a banner I had created years ago. I know, I know, a banner – but, as banners go, it’s rather awesome 🙂
I created this for the BBC, to advertise a game related to one of their TV shows. It employs some pretty clever maths to animate some creepy vines which actually reach out to ‘grab’ your mouse cursor – have a play! (requires Flash)
If you’re on mobile, or don’t have Flash enabled on your browser, you can see the banner in action below:
A common oversight in Flash projects, when using a Bitmap with loaded content is that Flash will revert a Bitmap’s smoothing parameter to false when you replace its bitmapData. That is, when the data loads into the Bitmap, anti-aliasing will get turned off. This is simple enough to fix, but since you may not know if someone is going to replace the bitmapData of a Bitmap you have created – then it’s much better to code defensively for it.
This little SmoothBitmap class is for just such an occasion. Instantiate it like a regular Bitmap and, no matter what another developer does with it, smooth, anti aliased pixels when scaling/rotating will be ensured. Enjoy 🙂
