World’s First Internet Balloon Race

I’ve been loving Pokelondon for about a few years now (I really hope to work there one day actually) and now I love them even more when I found out they were working on this massive project World’s First Internet Balloon Race for Orange. Simply, you make a balloon and race it across hordes of internet sites hoping you’ve flown the furthest after a few days.

Trying to figure out how they did this is mind boggling. You just have to see it to believe it. It’s probably one of the more interesting projects I’ve seen this year.

Pampador, my balloon, is currently coming 5 361st. Which is pretty amazing since he was coming around 27 000th a few days before.

I’ve also noticed two people gave my balloon a boost! Sadly, I don’t know who they are. Let me know who you are in the comments section so I can return the favour!

Hello, how are you? Good? That’s great to hear. Me? Well, I just finished a two week gig at MTV Australia. Was a great learning experience, despite it being probably the busiest place I’ve ever worked. Headaches were a plenty, but luckily I had my hearty Boostjuices at hand!

Where to now from here? The mind ponders.

I’ve been involved with Rumble Pictures for about a year now, and I’m proud to announce that they’ve launched the trailer site for the epic that will be Maxium Choppage: Round 2! Take a peek, it’s going to be a hilarious and fun film – I promise!

(For those wondering what I do for Rumble Pictures, I handle the motion graphics and some of the online stuffs)

The JobsGod has finally giveth our own place of worship. We mortals were even worthy enough to receive our own Faithful shirts that we will wear proudly like how the monks wear their robes when in church.

I must disclose that I stood in the cold rain for what seemed to be a while – a small price to pay to step into a sacred place of enlightenment.

Vivicalaca is pretty much what I wanted The Paper Pirate to look like, except I couldn’t pin point it at the time – a visually rich world of 2d characters in a 3d environment with some hint of shadows.

For those wondering, the reason why I headed towards a 2d-in-a-3d-world-look (back in 2005) was all because of when I stumbled upon Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends
