Drums of Death was supposed to be a vector animation music video the the Chuck D and DJ Spooky collaboration B Side Wins Again. It was the first paid project Noah Olmsted and I took on after graduating from Columbia. Our ambitions were impossibly high, and our project management skills non-existent. In the end we came out with some pretty interesting work, but we could never quite finish the video in a way that lived up to our expectations. Eventually the project died, and not surprisingly, no one was happy with us.
Lately I've been experimenting with proximity functions in Flash.
