I have this [url removed, login to view] already setup but I really need some animation done to this. I need various parts of the mansion to be active and people to be able to click and have some kind of cool effect of the mansion opening or something You can see the various sections the mansion will need if you click if you look in the current "Event Info" link at the bottom. Upon completion of this the slide up panels with event info, sponsors, etc... will no longer be there.
Here is another landing page we have with some cool effects and transitions as an example [url removed, login to view]
What I need is for someone to be able to "explore the mansion". Not sure how to draw attention to the rooms, rather than someone blindly moving their mouse to see if anything pops up. Perhaps an outline of the room? As for the information for each pop up (brief paragraph and image), here it is:
Old Gatsby: The “Old Gatsby” ballroom will feature the Elliot Deutsch Big Band, playing traditional swing and jazz.
New Gatsby: (image 1098): For those with more contemporary taste, the “New Gatsby” ballroom will feature DJ Rigo, playing Top 40, hip hop, etc.
VIP Room: (image 2012-09....) VIP attendees will be able to sip and sample from dozens of whiskeys, gins, and other spirit, as well as cocktails inclusive with admission. The New Amsterdam shave lounge will also provide free shaves, shoe shines, and manicures.
Courtyard: (image 7101) We’ll have a number of food trucks (food sold separately) as well as a photobooth, and outdoor seating.
I forgot to start the post off with the landing page
One of the iconic images of the book is the light tower, and I was thinking of creating a HTML5 intro with a faint green light tower light (obviously the HTML5 part would be the light rotating). Have it do a few rotations on the bottom left and then the following text appears:
The tempo of the city had changed sharply.
The buildings were higher.
The parties were bigger.
The morals were looser and the liquor was cheaper.
The restlessness approached hysteria.
I will supply the light tower image.
And on the second page:
Since the event is very interactive, have a Gatsby esque mansion (the main mansion image we already have) with a guide that tells people to tour the mansion. When they click on the upper left room it would open a window “Old Gatsby” with some info on what happens in that room (ie, Jazz band); upper right would be “New Gatsby” with info about a dj; bottom left would be “VIP Room” with info about spirit tasting; courtyard could be “food trucks” and photobooth, etc. The idea is that the event offers interactive rooms so you feel like you’re in the 20s....
