PHP/MySQL backend w/custom DB, XML output for interpretation by flash front-end, Brightcove for video service, though the client insisted on implementing Brightcove in a way tha bypassed the API’s and was never intended (oh if I had a nickel…).
Wordpress framework, custom theme. HTML/CS/JS/PHP/MySQL
Custom JS Effect for the NextGen gallery to populate the scrollable thumbnail menu and incorporate deeplinking using swfAddress.
Social was also interesting. Buttons for FB, Twitter & Google+ pulled in w/JS. Discovered that JS content and FB Like do NOT play nice, mostly due to FB Like API ignoring JS and scraping the page for metatags when posting. So instead of telling FB to just share the page url, had to stitch together a url from the swfaddress deeplink such that it got passed in as a GET variable and the header.php could react appriopriately to return the appropriate metatags. It’s a shame that one should have to choose between smoothly swapping content around clientside and the keeping sharing simple & effective.

This was a viral marketing campaign launched in September 2005 for Lexus’ latest luxury model, the IS. While providing users with product information via an interactive flash interface, the site offered users the opportunity to upload their own photos to be incorporated into a mosaic image of the IS. If desired, the images could also be displayed on the Reuter’s Jumbotron in Times Square, and a photo of the displayed image taken at the time of broadcast to be emailed to the user. Developed by a team of 6 developers.
AS3, pureMVC framework, url routing with swfAddress, Omniture for tracking. Team of 3 developers
The most interesting aspect of this one was the initial animation populating the product pages, using Flash’s drawing API. Simply using trig equation easing on the tweening of the points that made up the corners of each white-outlined square resulted in a very elegant but simply achieved 3D effect.
