Video Filters Demo from Philips: Parallel Lines

I just got a new Macbook Pro, and while clearing out my hard disk I found a filters demo I did when working on Philips Cinema: Parallel Lines. I’ve cleaned it up a bit and added some buttons.

The bottom row of filters are the ones that I used in my drawing tool in Matteo’s Secret. The middle four on the top are interesting. I think the performance is pretty good.

iMeet revolutionises conference calls, by putting a face, to a name – blankly staring at the speakerphone is now a thing of the past.

Managing Like A Boss

I’m about to close up shop and go to Florida to get my Pilot’s license, so I thought I’d give my thoughts on being in, and running a dev team.

I like to be friendly, make people laugh and generally keep people happy. It’s a great thing to do within a team, but it can cause difficulty when handing out tasks or when you need to use your serious face. In general, this has lead to me being the guy at unit9 that the producers and designers like to come to when they want to know if something is possible or if they need little odd jobs doing.

The Flavourhood is not just a Facebook App. It’s a pledge of allegiance. It’s a line in the sand. It’s where you say what your favourite food is at McDonald’s and say it loud.

My first Tech Lead project was a small Facebook App for McDonalds. Lots of client communication and relying on external companies and people. It all went relatively smoothly, but unfortunately I wasn’t there to finish it due to family problems.
