North & South Website

Wanted to create a website for my short ever since I finished the project, but never got around to it........until now! Seems to be what most people do when they make a short. Spent the last few days making a simple site with just a few pages. Used iWeb for the first time, but you can actually build pretty nice looking sites really fast with it. Did a little html/css coding at the end too though, and added the javascript for shadowbox that makes the pics and video pop up.

Right now I have it hosted through my dropbox and then renamed the url with, which is good enough for now I think. Anyone know any good free or cheap domain/hosts I could use?

I will have the full short on the site after it's been shown in a few festivals most likely. Will also have some preproduction stuff on there at some point.


ps: I tested the site on mac versions of safari, chrome, and firefox. All seemed to work pretty well, let me know if you have any problems.

This is my mouse pattern for about an hour of internet browsing. You can see on the left, the black circles are areas of rest for the mouse and spots I go to often. Most of the markings are where the browser was sitting, where the tabs are at, and then the dock at the bottom. On the right are less markings. This is my secondary monitor, and for this I just had iTunes there so I would occasionally go there to change the music.

I will do a few more of these to see my mouse pattern while working in Maya and Photoshop.

You can get the program for this here:

This is my entry for 11 second club last month. Ended up 96 out of 233, not too bad. I think it needed a few more breakdowns and inbetweens before splining, and the poses are a little too snappy. The whole process for this one took about 5 days from start to finish. Will hopefully have an entry for this month too.
