Starting in 2000 I began creating short multimedia promotional biographies of Gothic, Industrial, Electronica, EDM, IDM, Noise, Techno, Dark Pop, Electro Punk and Black Metal artists in Macromedia's Director/Shock Wave Format(SWF) and Flash. In 2015 I converted over 200 animations from Flash to HTML5 code and in 2017 I again converted the features to Mpeg4 YouTube Movies. These are my historical archives...
About the author
It's been an interesting time. Classes continue and I can see everything lining up for graduation next year. Soon I will have a bachelor of arts to add to my bachelor of science. Now if only it gives me the kind of living my BS has. It could happen.
A couple labels have continued to send in new releases but most of these submission were directly from bands. So we have releases from Poland, France and Australia. The rest for a change are from the good old USA. All are outstanding and I hope you enjoy listening and learning about their work. Thank you for your continued support.
(2015) Well, I haven't taken my degree and applied myself to making a living from it. Submissions are almost non-existent from year to year. My medium of choice, Flash is slowing dying but most of the internet hasn't realized it yet. Myself, I surf the internet exclusively using a tablet so Flash sites are useless. I've taken my whole site off line except for those features which I have converted to HTML5. My hope is that by the end of 2015 I will have all my old features (nearly 200 strong) converted and back up as examples of "visionary" animated literature. Oh yea, that sounds classy.
(2018) Work has begun converting all 200 HTML5 animations into MPEG videos hosted at You Tube. I expect to finish all 200 animations by the beginning of 2019.
