I didn’t write a lot these past weeks because first it’s the holidays and second because I worked pretty late on making the Twist Image holiday eCard. Basically, it’s a collection of videos that have marked the year 2007 submitted by friends of the Twist Image president Mitch Joel. I had the chance to watch these videos a lot of time and I can say they are all pretty good.
What is nice with this microsite is that I used a lot of new technologies. First and foremost it’s done using flash 9 and ActionScript 3. I also used SWFObject 2.0 and SWFAddress 2.0. You can see the deep linking in action when you go to a URL like this: http://www.twistimage.com/share2007/#/Seth-Godin/.By using SWFAddress it also enabled the use of Google Analytic. Finally I also used Tweener. I wanted to use TweenLite for my preloader but I fad a problem with it and the answer came when the site was already launched. For the snow I used the code from Galaxy Goo.
All in all this was a pretty good project, I wish I would have had more time to perfect it, like making rollover for the scrollbar and adding some sound effects but this was not a client project so it didn’t have priority in the company. Well now I am back working in ActionScript 2 and I can’t wait to get another AS3 project.
