project description:
The CBC Greatest Canadian Invention was a TV special highlighting some of Canada's most significant — and sometimes bizzare — scientific inventions. The web component was designed and built to allow audience members to vote on their favourite invention which was them featured on the television show.
my role:
flash development I was working as a UI Developer at CBC for this project. I animated the graphics and programmed the flash application for browsing and voting on inventions using Actionscript 2.0 and object-oriented techniques. I suggested and implemented a flash captcha and tracking solution to reduce the risk of false entries. I worked seamlessly with the producer of the show, visual designer and back-end developer to turn the site around within a short timeframe.
client/employer:
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (Toronto)

This site is no longer in production.
