I am very excited to announce I will be giving a talk at this years FITC Toronto 2014 : THE TECHNOLOGY & CREATIVITY CONFERENCE! 2014 is the year that virtual reality will go from a bad memory from the 90s to the beginning of a new way to experience content. Already, the Oculus Rift has started to transform several industries with its ability to transport you to a completely interactive virtual space. As a designer and/or developer, this transformation will change the way you look at your work.

I had the honour to work on the location based augmented reality adventure app “Time Tremors : AGO“.  This mobile application transforms a visit to the AGO into an exciting interactive treasure hunt where even the artwork contains unique and exciting interactive experiences.  My research prior to this project turned out to be the perfect fit combining the compellingly unique intellectual property of Time Tremors with cutting edge augmented reality and interactive technology.  This app was designed and developed at Xenophile Media and will be deployed at other cultural institutions around the word with unique hunts for each institution.

Nomatics Video Game Available on iPhone, iPad and the Browser!

I had the pleasure of designing and developing the incredibly fun video game Nomatics available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and web browsers. The client was looking to create an engaging online experience loosely related to a television show called “What’s In A Name?” that would keep the brand alive and relevant long after the shows was being aired on History Television. In response to that request I created a fun action puzzle game using Unity3D an incredibly powerful game engine that allows you to create fantastic games that can be played on multiple platforms (xbox, playstation, wii, web, iOS, Android).

Lost Girl : Interactive Motion Comic

The Lost Girl : Interactive Motion Comic was an incredibly fun project to work on as I got to combine a lot of different skill sets in one project, design, programming and animation. Bedlam Games hired me to create an Interactive Motion Comic application in Flash, as the lead designer and programer I was responsible for the design and development of the entire application.

After I finished animating the dry run / pilot I designed and dveloped a video player capable of loading multiple video streams simultaneously. Users were prompted with different paths at key points in the story. The application was able to switch streams instantly by intelligently buffering the videos in the background.

It was a joy to work Tigh Walker a well known comic book artist who provided fantastic artwork, very talented writter Navid Khavari who wrote the script and animator Gregory Nersesian who did great job animating the project in After Effects. Paul Forest built new episodes by inserting new content and making minor code tweaks after I left to work on another project.
