Wexford Plaza

Digital Props

For Wexford Plaza, Joyce Wong's feature directorial debut, I implemented several custom web apps to support telling the main characters' stories as they navigate contemporary life through dating apps, online job listings, and text messages.

A Tinder-style dating app is fully interactive, implemented in Invision, allowed the interactivity to be driven by the actor's performance. Similarly, a local classified ad site, quickly built with Yeoman, is built to allow director and actor maximum flexibility and realism.

Finally, I also handled the animation of text-message conversation sequences in After Effects.

Wexford Plaza went on to win the Comcast Best Narrative Film Award at CAAMfest, and also screened at the Slamdance Film Festival, Torino Film Festival, and Atlanta Film Festival. Distribution is forthcoming via levelFILM.
