DJ Cheeba performs an exclusive live mix using Beck’s Vier beer taps to trigger audio samples and lighting effects across a grid of 600 LED-lit Beck’s bottles. In order to get the beer pumps to play music, we wired each of the 10 pumps to a custom wired Arduino board ( http://arduino.cc/ ) As the pump was pulled an electronic contact was broken which then sent signals to a custom made flash application, triggering each sample.

UPDATE: The FWA award winner, 19 May 2010
The Coney Island Experience was created for the Love Never Dies official site as an interactive playground of funfair games. Love Never Dies is the follow up to the hugely successful Phantom of the Opera written Andrew Lloyd Webber. I have to say that it’s one of the most visually rich sites I’ve worked on so far, and also a lot of fun to design.
To create Coney Island a 3D model was first created and textured. The model consists of over a million faces and 250megs of textures. From this fly though renders were created for each point in the funfair out-putting over 17 Gigs of HD frames.
Each game was firstly visualised in PhotoShop combining 3D renders, photography and hand drawn elements and then put together in flash. Visitors to the site can sign up and save their scores to game and global leader boards.
Each game point is linked with a 3D rendered fly through.
The Picture Palace pulls in Love Never Dies youTube channel videos. (Now offline)
Leader boards for each game and global leader board. A special thanks goes to Richard and Marilyn for their hand modelling and patience!

Continuing with experiments in generating random organic illustrations using Flash and ActionScript. This time processing video in realtime.
To create the short looping example video below, the flash movie output each frame of the 47frames as a still BMP. The ‘brush’ shapes were changed on the fly by using a drag bar. The final stills were then stuck together in AfterEffect (using no other treatments) to create the final output.
Video stills can be found on FlickR here:
