Clouds Over Cuba

2 | Clouds Over Cuba

Produced by the JFK Library this chilling website entertains and teaches. The mobile synching and dossier are a great touch.

Fantasyland

5 | Disney New Fantasyland
Disney’s New Fantasyland website uses Flash to bring visitors to an enchanted land that’s been long hidden from our view.

Muscle Music

6 | Old Spice Music Muscle
Old Spice and Terry Crews have teamed up to create a comedic Flash experience that allows users to make some ”funky” music using Terry’s muscles. This site allows users to remix the video and create their own jams and upload them to Vimeo. A great example of Flash enhancing Brand interaction.
