I’ve been working on a side project for some time now and I’m happy to release it into the world. I love all of the movies, shows, and shorts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) canon and wanted to create an interactive chronological timeline for them.
I originally intended to use Articulate Storyline 2 because of their great new slider feature, but that quickly went downhill because of the shear pain on creating hundreds of separate images and triggers. I then moved on to Adobe Edge Animate and quickly fell in love. It was such a great experience to both learn that one software didn’t live up to my expectations for a certain application and another I got to experiment and learn for the first time.
The timeline includes Phases 1 and 2 of the MCU and is not yet responsive or adaptive (I will be working on that part later). It’s best viewed on a screen resolution of 720 x 1280.
UPDATED: I replaced “Loading…” with “Assembling…” because I thought that was neater.
Tonight I created an animated GIF preloader for my in-progress Marvel project I’ve been working on. Thought I’d share with you.
I had so much fun making Planet of the Levels (2013) that I decided to make a mashup for each of the original five Apes films. I am not a musician or an expert in this category—I am simply a fan of POTA, EDM, mashups, and playing on my Mac.
If you’d rather skip all of this making-of stuff and just listen/download the song, just scroll to the bottom of this post. If you even remotely care about how this came together, then read on.
