For Christmas 2011 I wanted to do something different, without a green screen. This was my first major fast editing project, putting together many scenes.
It was a lot of fun to do, and I definitely want to do more outdoor filming and create a bigger project.
I was bored in the house one day, and saw this video on MTV. My video camera was near, so I put it on the tripod and filmed myself.
I got the green screen out and then put myself into some funny backgrounds. Done purely for the fun of video editing.
For my Christmas 2010 party, I decided to film a video. Hauling the green screen out, I wanted something very festive.
The idea came to me that we should involve Santa, and it became "Santa and the Two Johns".
This was my first attempt at keying out the background (with a blue sheet not a proper green screen). Although it looks quite bad, it was a lot of fun to do.
It inspired me to try better the next time, to make things look more smooth.
Bored one night, I thought it would be fun to try out something different. I made a virtual me in video form.
Making this helped me figure out good placement of sound effects and other visual effects to make a funny and silly video.
I had just bought a portable HD video camera really cheap, and my friend was going out for her birthday. I decided to film it.
This is one of my first very basic videos, but it was a lot of fun to put together.
Testing out my new green screen, which worked a lot better than I thought.
The luxury manor makes the perfect backdrop and was just a short clip I rustled up during testing.
After having a few personal websites, I needed to build one from scratch that would cover everything I am doing.
Built with the latest rules of HTML5 and CSS3 in mind, the site was crafted to be interactive and dynamic.
A website designed for a driving school, utilising a content management system for the ease of updating on the client's part.
The site allows a clear display of services, plus a great contact module.
This was my first proper personal website that I maintained for many years. It gave me a great place to feature photos I had taken and also a way to keep in touch with friends around the world.
The site was updated frequently, with a blog, travel experiences and many photo galleries.
This was the photography module for my personal website. I used to make use of Dreamweaver's photo gallery automation tool and then share the photos for everyone to see.
It was nice to have, and before the days of Facebook it meant my friends could view photos taken at nights out, etc.
I used to run a website with the aim of building and showcasing artistic sites. The site hosted many artists, graphic designers and photographers, who would each get their own free subdomain and space.
We grew to around thirty hosted sites, each containing amazing visual or written content. Due to expensive hosting costs, the site had to close in 2008.
This was a project that allowed me to experiment with PHP. I brought together poetry from the best writers, and presented it in a clear format that was enjoyable to view.
However, because of the lack of a content management system, the site became too complex to maintain, and with the start of uni, I put the project to one side.
Another project that started because I was bored. I had written a lot of material and articles on wellness, and decided to publish the content online.
The site would have benefitted from a content management system, and perhaps I will republish it in new web standards some day. It was nice to do, and a few people did manage to use and enjoy the site.
