You know that famous anamorphic painting The Ambassadors?
I was messing about with it in Flash and it’s very easy to show the distorted skull morphing into the image you’re supposed to see from an angle. Have a look see.
Ever wondered what it would be like to turn part of someone’s face upside down and then spin it round and round? I can’t think why, but you’ve come to the right place. See Upsy Downy Spinny Roundy.
You know when you’re flicking through your camera and you see two shots that were taken in quick succession and it looks like a little animation and you sit there for a while making the people dance? No!? well I’m always at it. Thought I’d add some music to this one…
This is something I was messing with in work but we never used….
I’ve been doing lots of flash banners in work recently. Like this and this. Part of me feels dirty. When anyone ever asks me “isn’t that ad hilarious!?” I smile and grunt politely while thinking “No. It’s an Ad! It’s part of the life sucking force that is advertising and marketing. How could it be funny?!” And web advertising is twice as annoying. Except maybe for the fact that you learn to completely blank them out. Except when the fuckers start flashing.
But. The other part of me is thinking, “I’m sitting here all day, messing about with Flash animation and someone is paying me for this!”. Although I’m not sure how much longer I can last. I think Flash might just be the culprit who’s brought my RSI back with a vengeance and good old goat boy would be turning in his grave.
