This site showcases the (mostly) digital work of Andrew DiFiore from both Virtual Arts Studios and answerYES Interactive as well as random thoughts and experimental projects too volatile to be contained anywhere else.

    Launched newly redesigned website for Stamford-based orthodontist Dr. Robert B. Goldman. Clean, informative, and a bit whimsical, the site appeals to children as well as adults with plenty of room for growth as the practice prepares to engage new customers through PR and out-reach campaigns (hence, the YouTube channel, blog, and interactive Photo Gallery).

    When I first created this casual game as a promo for the launch of answerYES Interactive, I figured it would be popular but I was really surprise how supersonic that popularity grew. Within weeks, visits to the new website went from virtually zero to over 10,000 and the longevity of the campaign would prove to be years, sustaining significant traffic even today (just Google Japanese Supermodels).

    answerYES gets lots of client requests to create something similar for their own promotions (which have or will show up here), so, it was time for Japanese Supermodels 2.0. I don’t expect the same viral dividends as before but that’s okay (the game is a labor of love now). Play the Japanese Supermodels Interactive Game at its new home and let me know what you think.

    We helped Bridgeport-based apparel company Cricket Hosiery take their wholesale graphic socks business online to make it easier for retailers to order products as well as raise awareness among potential new clients of the company’s flagship brand Tic Tac Toe. Given the need to handle multiple “stores” and securely integrate with an existing inventory system, we went with a customized Magento ecommerce solution.

    Sebastian’s Voodoo

    When I first saw this short by animator, director, and producer Joaquin Baldwin I was blown away. I love this kind of storytelling:  moody, moving, and a bit disturbing. Created at the UCLA Animation Workshop with music by Nick Fevola, Sebastian’s Voodoo has won over 100 film awards internationally since its debut at the YouTube Screening Room in 2008. Give a view (it is only 4 minutes long) and while you’re on Joaquin’s site (beautifully designed BTW) check out a few of his other shorts. I also like The Windmill Farmer.

    By now you have probably seen this Apple ad for the iPod Shuffle. Apple has a pretty good track record for inspired TV commercials.

    You may have seen this spoofed on Whitest Kids U’ Know, a sketch comedy troupe on Fuse TV who are reminiscent of The Kids in the Hall who are reminiscent of Second City who are reminiscent of Monty Python… should I keep going… who are reminiscent of Your Show of Shows
