Lynx Fastlife – Behind the Scenes – Part 2

In my previous post I explained how I generated the sequences used in the Lynx Fastlife app – which you can read about here. Now I’m gonna run through how I did the overlays and data insertion for the app – the part that I think is the really cool part.

Light Writing Effect

A while back I was given the task of trying to animate a banner that was to go on a site we were building at Visual Jazz. All in a usual days work I thought until I saw the design mockup and realised it had been photo-shopped to the bejeezus.

Lynx Fastlife goes live!

For the last few weeks I have been working on a pretty massive project at Visual Jazz for Lynx body spray called Lynx Fast Life.

It is a pretty awesome video / facebook / integration site that pulls data from your Facebook account and generates a glimpse of what your life would have been like if the world wasn’t going to end in 2012.
