InterplayEnergy was originally a static HTML website. To allow dynamic content and ease of editing by the InterPlay staff I fully converted the entire website to Joomla including converting the menus, panels, and footers into Joomla Modules. Now InterPlay staff have the ability to update and maintain their own website giving them the freedom to manage their own content without the burden of having to dig into code to make simple changes.
"Robert is timely and professional. He's given me the tools to manage the simple website tasks myself, but is always available to do the more challenging development and design projects." ~Stephen Quirk
"Robert designed and organized a brand new website for me. This was a huge undertaking since I have a ton of content and no clear way of organizing it. Robert came up with a brilliant plan to organize all my content so my new website is not only appealing to look at but also extremely maneuverable for my customers. Show More
Since I have launched the website I’ve received numerous compliments on how easy it is to navigate and people can easily find what they need. There were several things that I needed my website to have that weren’t included in the template. Robert went out of his way to find plug ins or build the software to make what I needed work. He was extremely patient with all the changes and extra requests that I made. Not only was he super easy to get a hold of, he was really fast. When I have made any kind of a request, the work has been done either the very day I ask or within just a day or two. My very favorite reason I will use Robert from now on for all of my website needs is his willingness to make sure that I know how to run my own website. He takes the extra time to explain how the website works and then sends me specific how-to videos so I can make the necessary changes myself. This has been a huge bonus. My last designers charged me a fortune for any how-to help and Robert has provided it along with the website. Robert is brilliant with website design and his expertise made my website finally look clean and professional.
"I can't express how grateful I am that after searching and searching, I found ROBERT to help create my classroom website! He was in constant contact with me, giving me updates, clarifying things I needed, and asking questions to make sure we were both on the same page with everything. He made my ideas come to life and was very patient, kind, and generous! If you want to build a website, but need help doing so, Robert is a fantastic choice!" ~Kristin Kittl
"Robert is amazing! He's very professional and responds to requests in a very quick and timely manner. Not only does he provide his expert opinion on how to optimize the quality of our website but he also has a great eye for the placement of things. Overall I would recommend him for any project!" ~Hien Tran
"Robert redesigned my webpage so it was easier for me to upload new information, before I would have to have a friend do it for me and he was always busy so it took months sometimes, and in this busy economy everything needs to be updated very quickly! Robert was so easy to work with, and he sent frequent e-mails about the updates he was doing, and was available for my questions anytime. Thanks Robert for all of your help!" ~Dianne Spitzer-Valladares

Another disk I worked on while working with Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory. I worked on localizing the entire feature disk for an international SKU as well as localizing a BD-Live update for integrating Fox Portal and PocketBLU (developed by Deluxe Digital Studios) which allows Android, Blackberry, and iPhone applications to communicate with the BD-Player (these features will be made available to consumers via a BD-Live update sometime during 2011, in select Regions).
This was the first full disk I authored while working at Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory. I worked on all aspects of authoring the disc including BD-J and HDMV Author. The menu itself was simple but included the Living Earth functionality that is very complicated for both BD-J and HDMV, it included PiP, menu navigatioin, and Live Updates through BD-Live. However, I was not the one to originally create the feature, I modified it and made it more efficient for Oceans but I cannot take the credit for the original development.
I authored this disk while working at Deluxe Digital Studios. I worked only on the BD-J portion of the disc while an HDMV Author worked on the disc content. The menu contained several unique animations such as spinning knobs, drawing underlines, scrolling, and fading.
This is the first title I work on while working at Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory. I worked on all aspects of authoring the disc including BD-J and HDMV Author but worked on localizing an international SKU and not the original development. Once the title was officially released I integrated advanced feature such as an additional Menu "Live Extras" that is linked with Fox's new Bd-Live Portal, and integrated PocketBlu (developed by Deluxe Digital Studios) which allows Android, Blackberry, and iPhone applications to communicate with the BD-Player (these features will be made available to consumers via a BD-Live update sometime late 2010 or early 2011, in select Regions).
This is one of several other disks I authored at Deluxe Digital Studios. I authored the BD-J portion of the disk while another authored worked on the HDMV. The overall design/layout of the menu was simple b ut included rather interesting animations using fading, scrolling, etc. of the mirror buttons.
Stargate: The Ark of Truth was one of several catalog type titles I authored while at Deluxe Digital Studios. I authored only the BD-J portion of the disc while another author handled the HDMV protion. Although the menu was rather simply it contained several scaling, fading, and sequence animations that complicated the authoring but gave the menu a very alive and interactive feel.
I authored this disk while working at Deluxe Digital Studios. I worked only on the BD-J portion of the disc while an HDMV Author worked on the disc content. The disc contained basic functionality and special features, it is a good example of a catalog title using only simply animations like scrolling and a basic menu structure.
Tinkerbell was one of several other titles I worked on while with Deluxe Digital Studios. It was my first Disney title I worked on and I only authored the BD-J portion of the disk, Localizing an international SKU.
This was the first disk I authored while working at Deluxe Digital Studios. I worked only on the BD-J portion of the disc while an HDMV Author worked on the disc content. The menu contained several unique animations, but the difficulty of this disk came from it being my first title and it being the first Fox disc using their now rather common Pressbook/Newspaper feature which I developed.
Fast & Furious - Virtual Garage is an application/game that allows users to create a customized vehicle that can be shared with there friends via BDLive. I developed the original structure and was the leader for testing and developing the logic needed to push the limits of Blu-Ray and make the application work.
I lead the original coding and testing for the re-design of Universal's BDLive center. I developed the underlying structure and logic that was later modified and used live on all current Universal Blu-Ray TItles.
I lead the original coding and testing for the design of what is now know as Pre-roll. It is a streaming structure built to stream content during the pre-roll section of a Blu-Ray title. I developed the original underlying structure and logic that was later modified and used live on all current Fox Blu-Ray TItles.
This was the first 'Advanced' feature I worked on and just happened to be on my first title I authored. The functionality wasn't complicated but required knowledge of the Blu-ray Specification and a deep knowledge of the Authoring Systems used at Deluxe to get the functionality to work seamlessly. This feature consisted of a 'Book' that had transitions from pages to page (video showing the pages turn). Once a page was opened navigation was allowed on the individual pieces of each page that the user could select to view a full-screen of the Paragraph/Article/Picture. A large amount of coordination between the HDMV author and I had to be maintained so the pages, transitions, and full-screen shots could be linked smoothly. Extra care had to be taken to insure the user wasn't able to navigate the Pressbook in unexpected or undesired ways. This feature was first implemented on The Conquest of the Planet of the Apes an has since been reused on many Fox titles as a standard extras feature.
I integrated Deluxe Digital Studios PreRoll, PocketBlu, and FoxPortal with the Avatar Blu-Ray title while working with Panasonic. I communicated with parties in Deluxe as well as internally within Panasonic to change/modifiy/update the original Avatar disc to include PreRoll, PocketBlu, and FoxPortal.
