Burp Interactive wanted some Flash elements and WordPress.
This project was a total re-design as this client was not happy at all with their current website. They make digital screens for stores and other outlets. They wanted to show off their screens with digital content on their website.
Glimpse into my workflow:
I ended up developing a custom Flash (vars) video player that simply loaded the video. For the screen, I ended up modeling and animating their product. Burp Interactive was kind enough to send me one of their screen products so I could accurately model their product in 3d and finally set it up to animate using a simple bone rig.
The developed the Flash Video player using the MVC Design Pattern. I used this architectural design mainly because everything is loosely coupled. The video player actually has 3 videos: left, right, and middle.
The middle view is the video player’s perspective looking directly at the camera. The other two are the left and right perspectives. This way, I can use one video player and change the modes via Flash Vars verses having three separate video players (yuck!)
I did develop some custom plugins since the site does feature a simple login system for their investors and testimonials. The testimonials are simply posts in WordPress. using php, I grab the posts and animate them using jQuery. It was a fun project to work on!
