Pieces of the People We Love

Tuesday, September 5th, 2006

piecesofthepeopleweloveTo promote The Rapture’s album ‘Pieces of the People We Love’, I created this microsite where fans could upload their image and a small profile to the band’s site. Their image became a part of a picture of the band. This really worked well with the album name, as people who uploaded a photo literally became pieces of the people loved by the band.

The site was a decent ¬†success and thousands of fans engaged and uploaded a picture. As the picture filled up more and more, the site automatically rearranges the images on a slightly smaller scale, so it always looks like there’s only a few more images to go before the image is complete. Ok, so it’s a dirty trick, but it really encourages people to get involved!

Clearly or Darkly

Tuesday, August 8th, 2006

clearly-or-darklyThis microsite was produced to promote the film ‘A Scanner Darkly’. As more people upload their images to the system, an overall image begins to form from the mosaic of smaller photos.

The site is quite technically challenging, having to upload and process images into appropriate positions on the master image. Then to send all that data back to the client machine is a tricky task too, achieved by combining images into one giant image on the server, then getting Flash to sort everything out on the client’s machine.

Ant Bully Mail

Friday, July 14th, 2006

antbullymailThis webtoy was built to promote the Ant Bully film. You get to draw on the ground with a stick, then send your picture to a friend, where it is recreated via the medium of crawling ants!

Sounds like a simple concept, but there’s an unexpected niceness in the way the ants form all of your lines simultaneously. Check out the link below (which links to a message I’ve made just for you) to see what I mean…

 

Futureheads Wordsearch

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2006

futureheads-wordsearchI created this wordsearch to help the band The Futureheads promote their latest tour. Find the tour locations in the wordsearch to get the details.

As an advertising campaign, it’s a bit of a broken concept since you have to work to get the info you want, and you can’t be sure you’ve found all the locations. As a simple wordsearch game it works pretty well, however.

Crimea Lottery

Wednesday, December 21st, 2005

crimea-lotteryTo promote The Crimea’s single ‘Lottery Winners on Acid’, I helped build this competion microsite. The competition is long closed now, but you can still visit the site. The competition had a basic level of cheat protection, which actually worked in practice as one person tried to claim a prize for themselves that they weren’t eligable for!

 

The Exorcism of Emily Rose

Thursday, December 15th, 2005

emilyroseI built this spooky fridge-magnet game to promote the Emily Rose DVD release. You had to try and spell a phrase from the magnets before the clock strikes 3am and all hell breaks loose.

The game isn’t online anymore, but it featured neat feeling letters that rotated and floated around nicely when you picked them up. It didn’t force you to create the phrase in any specific point either, but allowed you to build the words up more or less anywhere.

Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolow

deuce-bigalow-2Use the mouse to catch the wine spurting from your date’s tracheotemy in this gross wobbly-hand game.

Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolow was my first project at Hyperlaunch. It was a bit of a shock to be producing a game on my first day of work, but I dived in and built this game in my first few days (not including the microsite).
