The new flash framework for the site is up and running. The complete reworking includes an updated flash page for the main index, new gallery pages, a project page, and this blog site for news and other information. The main enhancement is in the background, and makes for much easier updates and maintenance from a site manager standpoint. All information—including links, text, thumbnails and images—are stored in external XML files. This makes it easy to upload new content without having to edit a flash file every time. Content is then loaded dynamically, making the flash movies smaller as well.
The main index page is for the most part the same, however it has a few enhancements, including dynamically-loading information windows which are also featured in the rest of the site.
The new gallery template is a basic flash page which loads all the information to display from external XML files.
Much of the content has yet to be loaded, however, with the framework up and running site promotion can begin. As any visual artist will tell you, they never finish a project, they are simply forced to stop working on it. In this case, the site will max out at about 80-percent complete, and will be in a constant state of reworking, tweaking, and updating.
