Flash Advent Calendar for 2G/Barclaycard

2G Marketing contacted me about a project to create an Advent Calendar for Barclaycard which would be emailed to employees in the Uk, Germany and Sweden over the month of December.

The graphics include charicatures of the current Board of Directors and were provided by 2G as flat images which I imported into Flash to create the animation.

As Barclaycard employees are not allowed to update software on their machines the movie had to be backwards compatible with Flash Player 7 so I had to use Actionscript 2 rather than my preferred AS3. This proved to be somewhat of a challenge as I hadn't used AS2 for a number of years but as soon as I started it all came flooding back.

What the client said..

"Simon pulled everything together without fuss and delivered exactly what we wanted. He knows how business works – that puts him way ahead of other web developers. It takes a huge amount of experience to understand how a client thinks and manage to get their ideas to work on screen."
