First ever website burn!

Well well, what next!?

This just in:


"Monday, Feb.27, 9:12 AM

Due to circumstances beyond our control, our main site is currently non-functional. As of now, we have few details about how the fire started or how its continuing to burn.

We want to stress that this tragedy will in no way affect our April 6-9 festival.

Well pass along further information as it becomes available. Weve scheduled an online press conference at this same Web address for today at 4 p.m. And well continue to pass along information in this manner until we all have the answers were so desperately seeking.

We appreciate your patience during this trying time.

Regards,

Robert Stromberg
Full Frame Film Festival"

and the burning site link:

Obviously too much use of Flash and improper installation of a good firewall.

Many who look at that site now will not see the "burn" as it was in realtime over 3 days a week ago, however for the people that have seen it, yes it was done in flash, we shot lots of fire at night to do the VFX work that it took to make it look "real" was a fun project!! and got us on Adcritic.com along side NIKE etc as "Interactive work of the day" whooohooo!

Guess you could say the site went up in a 'flash'.


Sorry, couldn't resist. ;-)
