What are you most interested in now?
Finishing off the Telemetry orchestra video then going to canada to start a new position at Blast Radius. I am also very interested in making sites that are more interactive and visually stimulating. I would love to do film/tv titles and possibly more music film clips. I imagine that soon the web will be available to more people when digital broadcast comes into play throughout the world. Taking the web to the lounge room via tv/entertainment unit so I am focusing on creating sites/features that will take advantage of whats available now, knowing the future is only going to make it more exciting to create, animated and design.
We’d like to ask you about the web design in Sydney, Australia in general. What is (was) hot there?
I believe there are some great sites being created in Australia and the design is world class. I would like to see more Australian pushing the medium further.
What do (did) you think about you are (were) based in Sydney?
I’m a little confused with the question but I will give it a go anyway. I am about to leave these shores. There is a lot of scope here although there are only a few major players in the web industry. I love Sydney. I will miss Sydney but Blast radius is going to be an amazing opportunity to create very innovative flash sites. It is hard to find clients that are willing to create sites using flash in Sydney. The plug-in download function limits the clients vision.
Do you have any plans for the near future?
Sleeping… with leaving the mother land getting closer I am working some 13 hrs a day and not spending enough time with my love – who is a great inspiration for me. Moving to Canada and working with some of the best designers/developers. Skiing at whistler. I would also love to update mwg… I have a couple of things ready but not to what I would call a good enough standard to upload. I am also “hanging out” to buy a new mac and a digital camera so I can do some more features using captured video.
