Website Interfacing Prototype

I think this is pretty cool stuff, and I’m proud of my work on this project.  In October of 2008, I was invited to collaborate with Steve Mehallo, Jim Cassio, and Michael Scott to animate a prototype of a new website standard.  I was responsible for creating and programming the animation.  I was also responsible for following Steve Mehallo’s design of the interface to the pixel.

I hadn’t used Flash since AS 1.0 days, so I had to learn Action Script 3.0 programming very fast.  I used research material published by Keith Peters to achieve my goal in one month (all while teaching full-time). Big thanks to Keith for being a great author and teacher!  I used to dread programming in Flash, but now it’s one of my favorite things in Flash and is thoroughly satisfying.  Animating with code is very cool. I retired from this project in December of 2008 to take on a part-time position teaching at the Art Institute of Sacramento from January 2009 – June 2009.
