New Website: Cinegistics.com

Cinegistics.comI enjoy being able to do the whole thing for a client who needs a new website and is starting from scratch. By the “whole thing” I mean, setting up the hosting, designing the website, building the templates, setting up and building out the database, forms, forums, email, shell, ftp accounts, webservices, reports and analytics using open source zero-dollar LAMP and Google technologies. Yeah, its like solo climbing, you depend on yourself and in the end it’s super rewarding.
Cinegistics.com was built out for some folks I have worked with before who have built a very cool innovative software application (CineShot&#8482) for Video Professionals, that ensures a videographer will achieve appropriate and consistent focus, exposure, color and sound levels for live video shots.
If you’re into Video and Video Software, you really should check this out.

The Inner Life of the Cell

Harvard University selected XVIVO to develop an animation that would take their cellular biology students on a journey through the microscopic world of a cell, illustrating mechanisms that allow a white blood cell to sense its surroundings and respond to an external stimulus. This award winning piece was the first topic in a series of animations XVIVO is creating for Harvards educational website BioVisions at Harvard.

This is an incredible bit of Flash work which conveys some of the humbling complexity within a single human cell. Check out the majesty of the inner universe, the microtubules, the golgi!
