During the last 3 years I have been incredibly busy building applications for international clients and moving around the world, so I didn't have a minute of time to update this page. Therefore projects are a little bit outdated and remain to 2008. Please download my CV for an updated situation. Thanks.
throughout many years of Agency and Freelance work, I have been involved in so many projects that it would be insane to list them all. Here are just a few examples amongst the latest ActionScript projects. Take a look at the ForteYang Portfolio, since I have been involved in almost all it's projects. You can also look at my resume
SeeYou Project - Palm Dreams
Since may 2007 I have been Chief System Engineer for Palm Dreams. For them, I conceptualized and designed the SeeYou Platform, a cross-media system to deliver User Generated Content to broadcasters and TV networks. The platform converges pre-recorded video, mobile live and recorded video and images, web-cam streams and studio streams in a visually stunning, highly interactive environment. The system is based on a complex hardware/software/networking architecture and fits seamlessly in a broadcasting facility. I also recruited a team of highly-skilled people to locally manage R&D Palm Dreams facilities in Rome. SeeYou Platform is now being implemented succesfuly worldwide.
My Open Care
I managed AS programming and planning for the H-Book social network application www.myopencare.com. Media can be navigated, visualized, ordered and learning paths can be created and setup with this application. It handles mixed medias and provides a rich complex user interface to build and browse knowledge. Have a look at some screenshots...
Rome Fiction Festival 2007
During all of 2007 I have been in charge of new media and internet for the first edition of the Rome Fiction Festival. Leading the team of developers, designers and copywriters for the whole web-presence and intranet of an event with a staff of more than 200 people and thousands of participants, has been exciting and challenging. After long time far from Italy, its been sweet to spend a few months in Rome. I have been leading the whole internet, but I kept for myself the pleasure of developing flash applets for the site, like the Picture Gallery. C u in Rome FF 2008!.
Hardcore ActionScript 3: JibJab - Starring You.
Starring You is a great system, invented by super-creative team at JibJab, to use your own heads in talking cartoons. The user can upload a library of images and cut from them a series of heads, with jaw selection in order to allow speech motion, to use in JibJab funny movies. Since I am usually called for impossible missions, my task was to produce the HeadCut Tool.

Donald Hyams Gallery - Technology beyond style
Donald Hyams is a great artist and film maker I had the priviledge to work with. During the wonderful month spent in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, I built for him a system where usability is at its best, keeping simplicity and visual style. Browse Donald's artworks to enjoy his refined art, and the organic scroll of galleries and zoomed artworks details.
Onsite Direct Global - Worldwide real estate investment and management
For the Australia based company PixlArt, I leaded the client side development of a huge RIA to manage on-line real estate investments.
Within the same RIA, it is possible to browse properties, manage users and place investments through an integrated e-commerce system. Furthermore, admin users can update data, upload files and perform all administrative tasks within the same interface. The project lasted 8 months hard work for its version 1. We are all exhausted, but also excited and so proud of it!
Read explanatory post with screenshots and description and don't forget to visit PixlArt website.
During 2010 the ODG project has been discontinued, but still it has been one of the most challenging projects I worked on.
Dynamic video creation in Flash - 2006 World Cup Meteo
For the 2006 World Cup, together with the italian AgiPro Meteo, I made this application using Flash & Zinc which grabs data from a Meteo server, exports a bitmap sequence, then compiles an AVI movie with the correct soundtrack, and transfers the movie via FTP on various italian TV networks. The application is running on a server and updates the meteo movie twice a day.
Flash Text Repository Search Engine
Being based in Rome, it happens sometimes to work for the Vatican. This project compiles an entire year of the weekly magazine "Il Cerchio", published by the Roman Cathoilc Church, and provides the user with a full featured search engine. All contents are stored in the CD as HXTML files. Flash loads all content and presents it to the user for browse or search. All features and graphics are externally loaded. For next year it will be as simple as updating the XHTML content repository with the new issues and the CD will be ready for print.
Multi-user Chat in Flash
For version 2 of GoGoFrog I released an engine to manage multi-user environment. Relying on Smart Fox Server environment, I created a whole set of SWFs and server side scripts capable to manage complete multi user interaction. Real time motion of users is broadcasted in order to visualize position in an interactive 3D environment. Room chat, private chat, multi-user private chat, avatar positioning management, etc. The API is powerful and well documented.
Flash CAD - Room Designer
The Room Designer is a 60 Kb CAD application, with a real time 3D engine, to design and furnish conference rooms. This is an on-going project, but a working demo (create and resize room widths and height, apply wall elements) is available. The application is multi-language, and all design and architectural elements are defined in external XML files.
Together with the italian agency Xister, I structured and programmed the Flash website for GXT, an italian satellite channel of the SKY network. The whole flash application is managed with external XML files to control everything, from animations to TV programmes, special events, downloads, amount of preloading, etc. This allowed freedom for the agency to update any part of the website without ActionScript skills required. The flash site is aimed at broadband connections, and contains lots of streaming video and audio.
Flash CMS - Kinetic Flash Inspiration, Singapore
For the Singapore events agency Asia Events, I developed the website for the Kinetic Flash Inspiration Conference and ActionScript Workshop, in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, based on the BONSAI Flash Content Management System developed by ForteYang.
Take a look at the website, and then download a demo of Bonsai.
I havent updated this section since some time, was taken into developing cool flash stuff. Like poken.com,
BONSAI - Flash Content Management System
Within ForteYang I developed a stand-alone content management system in Flash, capable to convert 50 image formats, create jpegs, create and manage content, and synchronize local files with server content via FTP. You can download a Demo Version (which of course doesn't write on server) connected to the aforementioned Kinetic website. Bonsai has been installed on various platforms and can update contents and manage assets easily.
