Easy parallax scrolling or easy web native visuals or how to make a cool website

ParallaxExample

it been popping the last year or so

parallax scrolling for websites

the concept is old

“The technique grew out of the multiplane camera

technique used in traditional animation since the 1930s,

and was popularized among video games

in the 1982 arcade game Moon Patrol

moon_patrol

In 2011 Ian Coyle created the very first parallax website for Nike

“Nike Better World”

give it three year and now its a breeze

Scroll Kit make it simple and intuitive

I did THIS in a day

this whole thing is great for web native stories
SNOWFALL

FIRE STORM

or just telling a story

like the Epic  life of Pi

the idea is old the technology is accessable

all you need is the game plan

the rest is a simple process

for more inspiration

Scarlett Johansson vs Katie Meyler or what does it mean to give?

here is the teaser for my new film

about what it means to give in the modern age

note

when tring to aid in the battle against world hunger

be sure to do deep research into the companies

that you will be doing your scripted celbrity endorsment for

ties to palestinian isreal tensions and controversial views on how the situation can be remedied  

charity vs collaboration

for product touted to be helping make our planet and people healthier

other wise you will be thrown to the dogs after 8 years of work

who wins

who loses

now she is a free agent in the league of celebrities vs world

oxfam not looking principled but petty

in comes More Than Me and Katie Meyler can’t be thrown to the dogs

casue she has a pack of her own who are not attached to her celebrity

but for the deeper messege of living for something more than yourself

i have my critiques of katie

she is far from perfect

but she is doing it

and

you are what you do

the philosophical debates over right and wrong

spin in stasis as those on ground pound it out looking for solutions in the day to day

oh we the lucky ones

scarlett-johansson-tattoo

lole fall 13 shoot or i fell for chicago or how i eat

the lole work is fun

deb is a hoot

thicker than thieves

we made our way around the windy city

with a pass from the weather gods

the shoot days were sunny and perfect

unseasonably warm

the city embraced us and we slid around

without a care or hassle

maybe all those pujas work out in the end

on the way to the airport before we went into the curve i said watch out this is a dangerous curve 20 seconds later we were in a ditch

Moonshine on the River —>Cucalorus

cucalorus

1

In lighting for film, theatre and still photography,

a cuculoris (occasionally also spelled cucoloris, kookaloris, cookaloris or cucalorus)

is a device for casting shadows or silhouettes to produce patterned illumination.

a non competitive film festival

in Wilmington nc

a beautiful place

chill costal vibes

southern in all the right ways

they hooked it up

pulled pork on the deck of a battleship

free 420 beer and moonshine

I am not making this up

I saw short film

 that touched me so deeply

I can dare not let my mind wander there

on the doc tip

something out of nothing was amazing

really unfolding the artistic process

the characters were compelling and thoughtful

the film was well constructed

on the fiction end

mumble core legend

hooked it up

funy and strange

then quietly going deep

very deep

the actor was there

super cool guy

struggling artist

but being hungry can be a good thing

though I have actually won awards

I have never been on this end of the festival

Showing work

randall

a film by henry snyder

shown in a block of other comedy shorts

interesting to have a public viewing

to revisit the work after time

we got laughs

hemorrhoids are funny

I left the camera at home

Documenting the adventure

The Long layover pt 1 –Waiting around

this was really my first time in LA

there had been some fly throughs

but this time i have a rental car

playing pole position

what fun

a pack of wolves

nipping at each others heals

-+-+-+-+-+-+

in a trendy pizza place

wade and chris sit on other side of an open partition

playing acoustic

barely audible over the din of the dining room

as i drew closer i was sucked in the brightness of the sound

slapping hands between songs i asked- who wrote it

me -wade said- this is the new shit

from a bar

back to the house

i convinced them to do a video mission

the next day i met up with Rebeka

an ernest soul

bright, driven, obsessed

an artist to her bones

but this is LA

like NYC

you wait tables too

lamenting la vie artistique

she was on board for the mission with the boys

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

driving past oil fields in a middle of a city

i made my way to Tonga

wondering how it will unfold
