I haven’t even posted here since I moved to Los Angeles a little over a year ago; so I thought I would take this opportunity to add some new content and show a couple projects that otherwise would get swept under the rug. I joined the awesome team at B-Reel and its hard to believe its been a year now. While I’ve been working a lot on open-source projects like Sketchplate and focusing more of my attention on haptic-data.com; the work that remains buried on my hard drive is accumulating. So here’s a couple projects that I did at B-Reel during the winter. From November-December I worked on Jingle Mo-Beels which is primarily a mobile experience and during December – January I worked on A Living Soul a movie for B-Reel film out of Sweden. These projects were cool opportunities to do more with the Web Audio API and to create dynamic audio on the web with mobile.
Jingle Mo-Bells was an internal holiday project. Users that visited the site on mobile devices could use their phones to assemble a bell choir. There were two modes to play in, “Solo” mode made the sheet music auto-adjust to next correct note so you could play Jingle Bells by yourself. “Choir” mode allowed you to get together with friends and pick a note and play to sheet music. There was a fun easter egg of a cow bell in this mode also. Users that pulled up the site on desktop or tablet received the sheet music.
This website is for a B-Reel film by the same name. The story follows the life of a brain in an aquarium. It is an existentialist story exploring topics of consciousness, ethics in science and love as a floating brain. The site is a quick sampling of some dialog and some of the beautiful cinematography in this short film. Using the master of this film and some behind the scenes footage we made image sequences, image loops and audio loops controlled by the scrolling of the site.View complete entry
