We Do It
Well the webcam feature I’ve been talking about is now out with the trash due to the needed revision to the time estimate we gave a long time ago. Unforeseen client needs had shifted the way things worked and made this web cam feature a much bigger and, in turn, much more expensive undertaking for everyone. I felt it was a feature that wouldn’t be used much if at all anyway since people trying to win a contest might also want to edit their videos to put their best stuff on display. Plus if you have a web cam, that means you have the tools to record video to your computer anyway. You will be able to edit out the ending shot where you go back to click the mouse to stop the recording, whereas with the online web cam feature all the videos would most likely be ending with people bending down to click the mouse again. It’s a feature that is really cool in theory but probably not a necessity that is worth the cost it takes to make.
The reality though is that if a client wants something on their website, we can figure out a way to make it happen. In this instance the cost of ‘making it happen’ far outweighed the benefits. I’ll give the fallen flash programming project a moment of silence at some point. Most things that have been made can be found in our portfolio, but some of my favorites are things that haven’t really been done before. Flash animation using Papervision 3D has allowed us to make such things as the DDA Power Pyramid, a virtual trade show, and a web page that actually folds itself into a box and back into a usable page again. They are all really cool looking and are interactive on a three-dimensional level. Some of my favorite videography projects are the DDA in 60 Seconds commercial of course, a pet insurance commercial, and the Meet DDA videos (haha).
There is a lot more impressive stuff in our portfolios, though a lot of it is behind the scenes programming work and just solid professional work like digital photography and original graphic designs. To really see everything we do you’ll have to peruse our website or come to the building itself and take a tour.
