Vancouver International Film Centre


We completed a project for the Vancouver International Film Centre in October 2007.

I specifically worked on the software object for displaying "Now" and Next" information for the cinema. The work was built using Quartz software technology resident in Mac Os 10.   The "composition" was developed using the Quartz Composer application.

The basics of the "composition" are:

1) content is specified by data in RSS feed;  the composition will dynamically update the content from the feed.

2) The RSS feed data has URL's for the image and movie titles.

3) The "idents" are quicktime movies played from the hard disk of the computer running the composition.

4) A combination of Javascipt and patches control the display of images and  the sequencing of the segments.
