A Blue Perspective: Opening Titles for Web Directions South 2011

See the in-browser opening titles

Another year and another great Web Directions. Of course, for me, Web Directions isn't complete without frantic late-night coding sessions in aid of completing a madly inspired conference-related project.

Last year I created the Web Directions 2010 opening titles in 3 days from start to finish. This year I gave myself a little more time but made it no less ambitious by expanding the production onto 2 screens; thereby requiring it to run on two laptops simultaneously. (And stay in sync!)

With the number of things that could fall over – browsers crashing, projections being out of sync, people hating it – my nerves were ringing right up until I hit "play". Luckily it came off without a hitch, and you can see the results in the video of the performance below. (Or if your computer's feeling adventurous you can check it out in your browser.)

    I'll never forgive Jetstar for delaying my flight and making me miss seeing this live. Thanks for letting me finally see what all the fuss was about. Beautiful work Cam.
