While I got the perk of running on stage to accept the Key Art Award for this site, Lemony was truly a group effort for the people at 65media. I had a good time buildinging the 3D elements in Maya and also enjoied the challege of writing the first draft of the proposal which we later bound into a book. Chuck Chugumlung's and my designs pop up here and there in the site. However, the burden of design was put squarely on the muscular shoulders of Gabe "Bread Trick" Rubin.

The deadline on this site went from short to oh-my-God! Paul Szypula and I burned the midnight oil on this one. Ironically because of the tight deadline it was an unusual situation where we could pretty much do want we wanted—and we did! The flash work really set this one off for me. Now if I can only get that song out of my head.

This was another one done with a point blank deadline. To me it's a perfect example of how a great flash animator can push your design to the next level. Evan DeHaven added a lot of fun and creativity to this EPK site.

The request from the client was to build a site that highlights the intrigue and suspense that is synonymous with M. Night Shyamalan's films. Unfortunately the assest didn't really support that. To kick the project off I was given a couple rolls of lunch time shots in a Pennsylvania meadow. Not so scary. What I came up with was a moody interpretation of those original pictures. Each photo was treated to look like daytime, twilight, and night. As the user clicked arounded the site, in whatever order they wanted, the site would slowly get darker and more mysterious.

The Haunted Mansion was my first stab at designing a theatrical website. Again, like Lemony, this was a major group effort for the people at 65media. I really dug in and actually hand drew, and painted, the interface. We just kept adding and adding to the experience. And when we finished, we would have another brainstorm and add a little more. Being a linear experience thge experience plays a lot like the ride: family fun!

On Hidalgo I played the part of Flash Developer. This was my first dabblings with video and flash. Fernando Ramirez and I worked on-and-off on this site for almost a year. We had a funny love/hate reltionship with it. In the end we both looked at it and said, "Man, it turned out pretty good dude."

Home on the Range was one of those projects that kinda designed itself. After I blasted though the design Evan DeHaven handed me the flashed out nav and interface build-out. I just took it from there. If they were only all that easy.

I flashed this monster of a site out for Genex back in the day. Character based navigation and sections, full blown EPK, and an experience to boot.

A sentimental favorite. My first movie website. If you don't remember the movie, you're not alone.

It seems like every designer I know worked up a set of comps for this movie. Here's mine!
