unit9 collaborated with TV production company Outsider to set up the interactive logic and also assisted in the shoot of a bar under surveillance, which provides for alternative realities at certain key moments.

In this project I worked mostly with full screen video and the problems it brings. I had a lot of fun creating the scrolling map and the accordion in the Plans section.

Back in the day, before joining unit9 you had to do a code test. Mine was on AT&T Digital DNA to create the map containing the users. It wasn’t difficult but it was a little scary. I survived, my code was used in the site, and they asked me to come back.
