WONKY Films

Whilst at WONLY Films I developed and managed all of the online platforms for the award winning animation company, including the main portfolio site, social media profiles and associated short film websites. The sites are all mobile responsive and built upon the WordPress platform to enable other members of WONKY to update the site when required. Each of the short film websites have been designed utilising the same theme for a consistent feel, with style tweaks applied to each to fit with the films aesthetic.

Short film sites include: Writer’s Block, Nether Regions, Ain’t No Fish and Laugh Your Head Off.

I also acted as online editor for the site and am responsible for curating the selection of short films showcased on the site from independent animators worldwide, including a regular student showcase.

Games

My development experience started with Flash, creating short games for client marketing purposes. These games ranged from a space travelling adventure featuring Charles Darwin for Cheltenham Science Festival, to a Christmas themed platformer for Help the Hospices. With the decline of Flash games online I now create fun addictive mini games utilising the Construct Engine and the Phaser HTML5 framework to create HTML5 powered browser and mobile games.

Mobile

I have produced a number of apps for the iOS ecosystem, predominantly working with Adobe AIR for it's cross platform potential, but I also have knowledge of native iOS development with Swift. With Adobe AIR I have produced entertainment and game apps integrating social sharing, game center, push notifications, in-app purchases, analytics as well as linking to the Amazon Web Service (AWS).

I designed and developed an iOS App for the online animation magazine Show Me The Animation. The app was designed to showcase of some of the best animation from around the world, from both award-winning animators and the best new animation talent. The curated selection of films that were available in the app had notched up hundreds of festival screenings and awards between them.

The experimental VOD platform was developed using Adobe AIR to enable cross-platform potential and integrated with the Amazon Web Service to allow streaming & downloading of the short films. Multiple payment options including advertising and a ‘Pay What You Want’ system also sought to offer filmmakers a means for earning revenue from their short films.
