Not since 1999, and
the invention of multimedia, was the world so taken aback by CD-Romz.
Now with, CD-Romz out selling CDs, DVDs and box office reciepts
combined one wonders, "what will technology suprise us with
next?" Hold on to you hats, because internet start-up venture
Macromedia has just developed a vector based file format called
Future-Splash. As Paper Rad puts it ,"A lot of cool
shit was done in Flash, but there was never anything really that
looked so funky that pushed Flash behond it limits, into an arena
where the very tools of Flash have eaten themselves and caused
a creative process to evolve against all the things Flash isn't
supposed to do." Simply put, to make the first true Dogman
99 Flash Movie.
Paper Rap insists the loosely based value system
"Dogman 99" consisting of the rules "no Wacom tablet,
no scanning, pure RGB colors only, only fake tweening, as many
alpha tricks as possible" was recently fully realized during
a project with E*Rock while making a video for Beck. "Beck
wanted it done as a 3 minute animated gif, but we pitched a Flash
animation," said Paper Rad ,"about halfway through the
video E*Rock realized that with our use of Future Splash Faxelism*
we had a new genre on our hands.
We had to stop production for 2 weeks unitl we came up with a
cool name for what we were doing." Onward and upward, and
with the Macantosh hinting at a new OS capable of multitasking,
one can only expect to see more of this new genre of Flash called
(please print ink smear or fucked up text to hide the name of
the genre here).
