ABC Black Saturday Interactive goes live

Our first major project, ABC Black Saturday Interactive, went live yesterday!

"It pulls together hundreds of pieces of media – professionally produced media, official documents and records and the best user generated content – to provide a stunning insight into the fires and the people who lived through them. An interactive map and timeline allow you to explore the events through time and location, and a series of dramatic video portraits provide a moving insight into the personal experiences of some survivors."

This project has been a great experience, and we're really happy with the end product. The site pulls together a heap of media data such as video, audio, imagery and news content from a multitude of sources and combines it into a great interactive experience. The Google Maps API also provided us with a really interesting way of exploring the data visually based on the time and location of every media item and story.

Huge thanks go to the ABC Innovation Department, the producer Priscilla Davies, designers Bec Smith and Sarah Fawcett, and everyone else who contributed to the project - it was a great team to work with.

We're really proud to see this online so please go and check it out and explore the site!

Website for sale

We developed a website for a customer but unfortunate circumstances meant it was never deployed. So we're offering it up cheap.

It's a full xml driven photo gallery website, designed for a photographer. We even linked it into a drupal CMS install with some custom php, to pull the images from the galleries allowing the site to be easily updated by the client.

We are really disappointed this site never went live, so if you have any interest in putting a photo based website up this may be for you.

Have a look at some screen shots below:


And if you're interested in the website drop us an email and we'll setup a preview of the site for you.
