After seeing Avatar and being quite blown away by it’s amazing CGI I came across Alex Roman’s The Third & The Seventh. This got me thinking. In true Harry Hill TV Burp style who’d win in a fight? I mean, don’t get me wrong, Pandora is pretty cool but I’m not sure I ever felt like I was fully transported into the world. It felt a little like being in spectacular animation. An amazing animation (especially the glowing forest foliage – wow) but an animation nonetheless. Alex Roman’s abstract piece left me in true awe. And I’ll bet it cost a fraction of the big Hollywood budget.
Enter the truly mind blowing, bizarre world of JimCarrey.com – a flash heavy (well, super heavy) site that offers a rich cinematic experience that pretty much sums up Jim Carrey in a couple of clicks. The whole website is made up of a montage of expertly crafted scenes from his movies. Everything has been covered here from Ace Ventura to The Cable Guy to A Series of Unfortunate events and each section is a montage. I know some will balk at the Flash rich site but when you come to look at Jim Carrey’s own website you want something a little bit different. If you want a detailed history of his carer and movie roles then get to IMDB. If you want to experience Jim Carrey, the movie star, then come here. If there is a criticism it’s that the content has been compromised to fit within the Flash scenes but all is forgiven once you click from one section to another and experience one of the roller coaster transitions.
Amazing new flash website showing off the new cinema screen from Phillips. Similar to the Ikea advert a couple of years ago. Trying to dissect how they have done this. Making our head hurt!
