Would it be possible to implement flash into the Matrix or Grid?
You mean as far as cut-scene style animations go? Perhaps. The problem is any mission critical extra-content must be platform agnostic, or at least supportable on older systems (read OS9).
Flash, as cool as it is, does not meet this requirement.
If it can be completely bypassed and not affect the user experience, or replaced with an html version on older systems, it's an option, but definately not a promise.
In things like the grid and the matrix, functionality is a more important requirement than it looking amazing. And we remain, ultimately, a text-based experience. Graphics is (clearly) not nearly as strong a medium for our collective resources as code and text is. Deviating to from our core compentency will only result in us accomplishing less.
Having said that, there is a time and a place where pictures can reach places text can't, and we do reconize that, and try to take advantage of it when possible. This is one example. Hopefully I can use this to garner a little free publicity... We'll see.
I belive it is live on iFilm.
It isn't, because I told them to hold off while I replaced the logo with the offical one, then promptly forgot to give them the final version. Thanks for reminding me.
As to flash as a medium for the Matrix...Hmmm...I wonder...how difficult would it be to code a basic foundatio...no...fuck it, it is way to hard to do. I could see if we had 10 full time web programmers working for us, maybe then we could.
Aikao would be played by the Harry Potter.
Elijah Wood would play Seven.
Ice Cube would play Mak.
Tom Cruise would play Ari.
Jim Carey would play Nicadeamus.
Bernie Mack would play Tiny.
Will Smith would probably play Brixton (just cause he's a badass.)
All we need now is a Devon, a Lucifer, a Kikai, a Desolate, a Lucien, and a Clint... and we've got ourselves a bunch of dead famous people. ;-)
Edit in: Okay, I'm a dumbass and dunno who played these guys... but...
The guy who played Aragorn would be Lucifer.
The guy who played Legolas would be Lucien.
