Farm show photos

It took 500 photos to cover the Canadian International Farm Equipment Show, one of Canada's largest farm shows, filling all of the International Centre. Thousands of horsepower on display, including a fascinating display of antique tractors. These photos will end up on next year's website, and in newspapers across farm country.

White rabbit whiteout

It's magic. Flash video allows a video to play over the top of regular web content, appearing to float in space. Or, as Alice might have said, making the rabbit appear and disappear. This test shows the concept. The rabbit was shot on a green screen background, keyed with Adobe Ultra, edited in Adobe Premiere, and authored in Flash CS3.
